At Sun Valley retreat, Tim Cook tells reporter to upgrade her Samsung phone

“Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook quipped to a journalist that she should ‘get a new phone’ as she posed questions during the exclusive gathering of tech and media executives at Sun Valley, Idaho,” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider.

“The annual Sun Valley event, which has been held by investment bank Allen & Co. since 1983, brings together executives to discuss industry issues and talk deals. It was reportedly the birthplace of Comcast’s 2011 acquisition of NBC Universal, for example,” Dilger reports. “Bloomberg‘s ‘Hollywood reporter’ Anousha Sakoui tweeted ‘Ok Apple’s Tim cook just told me to upgrade my phone. It’s a Samsung. I don’t think I redeemed myself by saying I also had an iPhone,’ followed later by, ‘For the record Tim Cook is one of the nicest people I’ve met.'”

MacDailyNews Take: She should. Or at least dump her fake iPhone and keep her real one.

[Thanks to MacDailyNews Reader “Dan K.” for the heads up.]


  1. Tim Cook’s behaviour was decidedly more civilised, and humourous, than that of Steve Ballmer, who grabbed a hapless subordinate’s iPhone, dashed it to the floor and stomped it (or pretended to, even more of a wuss move.)

  2. In iOS I am using the Mercury browser to access this website with the user agent set to Firefox. No redirects.

    This Mercury browser is pretty cool because it has extensions and a decent amount of settings. I imagine Safari on iOS will have similar add-on functionality in iOS 8.

  3. — Sebastian Thrun had collateralled with a criminal suspect named gabriele scheler in a series of fascism crimes starting from a Stanford campus atrocity case — [Stanford police case number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler] — — attention to the 7 photo evidence to see how cruel people from this fascism circle are —, which led to the tragic death of an innocent Asian Stanford student, Thrun is not innocent in an unsuccessful plotted murder on me either and I have been cursed by fascism powers from Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s side for many years.

    — There is actually a war between fascism and anti-fascism, at this stage, fascism still prevails in our lives; Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler are just front figures we could see in a fascism circle, there is a whole pack of fascists behind them to cover up their crimes and to retaliate on victims

    1. — BTW, Sebastian Thrun is one of the listed attendee of the Sun Valley Conference

      — It is a tough task to fight against such anti humanity crimes which are fascism by nature; I bet such anti-humanity crimes would not be tolerated anywhere, including in the Sun Valley Conference;

      — Every attendee of this conference has the right to know, and so do all people who care about the influence of this conference;

    2. Answer to nontraditional001’s comment — “you might have a stronger argument if your cut back on the crazy” — from
      Dear nontraditional001,
      Appreciate that you’ve found some crazy issue here and thank you for your opinion;
      It is a tough task to challenge those fascists, which might make it look crazy;
      However, wouldn’t one agree that those bloody stripes on my legs in those 7 photo evidence out of a crazy crime scene — — a harsh reality?
      Also, such a simple campus atrocity case with clear evidence and serious police investigation had been purposefully mystified later on, in favor of this criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler, by some judicial officers who hided their identities from me for over 10 years, and this case had therefore induced more and more retaliatory fascism crimes; though I am a victim, my life has been underhandedly cursed by fascism powers behind Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler for these many years — what’s really going on here? — isn’t this fact much crazier?
      — One may find those things in my statements crazy to learn, but they are no more than facts; I am not the one who did crazy things, those fascists behind Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler did;

    3. Answer to nontraditional001’s comment — “not convincing at all”—from


      Dear Sir/Ms nontraditional001,

      Well, I bet there is at least a convincing police case number to start with:[Stanford police case number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler] — do you have any problem with that? Would you dare deny the brutality from Gabriele Scheler on my body as evidenced in those 7 photos?——

      If you want to have some credibility here, please show us your real identity in the first place;

      We are all made of human beings; you have your judgement, and we all have our own; Anybody with normal intelligence could easily figure out that there is something seriously wrong going on in this case; Would you be specific which part in my argument is ‘not convincing at all’? on what identity do you speak, after all?

      Your personal opinion out of a simple and arrogant argument of ‘not convincing at all’, under an insincerely disguised user name, are problems that make yourself ‘not convincing’ to anyone ‘at all’;

      — Would you please show us your real identity? I am eager to learn;

  4. I had a client ask me if I could move her apps to an Android phone from her iPhone.

    I asked her why she would want me to do that to her.

    She didn’t buy the Android.
