In part two of his wide-ranging interview with Charlie Rose, Apple CEO Tim Cook talks about privacy, security, the environment, U2, diversity, competition, Apple data centers, renewable energy, hiking the U.S. national parks, human rights, (Product) RED, and beyond the Internet.
If we focus on great products that enrich people’s lives and we do that well, really well, the financial returns will follow and our shareholders will be happy and it’s a continuous circle. I like that because it’s simple.
Changing the world… It’s the values of our company. It’s been the values of our company forever…. And [to] Steve’s credit, he put these values into the company… It was his mentoring and teaching that instilled these values into the company. So, if I step off the curb this afternoon – I hope I don’t – but, if I do, those will be the values of the company tomorrow and the next day and the next day. It’s that deep… It’s the privilege of a lifetime to be [at Apple] because there’s no place like it on earth. – Apple CEO Tim Cook
