The new trustees are Michael J. Bingle, vice chairman of Silver Lake Group; Eddy H. Cue, senior vice president of internet software and services at Apple; Nancy-Ann DeParle, managing partner and co-founder of Consonance Capital Partners; and Grant H. Hill, basketball hall of famer and founder of Hill Ventures. They will each serve six-year terms.

Cue T’86 is a member of Apple’s senior leadership team, overseeing the company’s services including Apple Music, Apple Pay, Maps, Search Ads, Apple’s innovative iCloud services, and Apple’s productivity and creativity apps. He also leads the newly created team responsible for developing all aspects of Apple’s worldwide video programming. He joined the company in 1989.

Cue helped create the Apple online store in 1998, the iTunes Store in 2003 and the App Store in 2008. He also played a key role in developing Apple’s award-winning iLife suite of applications. He has returned to Duke many times to assist students in technology fields, and in 2017 he spoke to the Duke Technology Scholars, an effort to inspire more Duke women undergraduates to choose careers in computer science and electrical and computer engineering.

  1. As a North Carolina resident, I can tell you that Duke University is a cesspool of wokeness. I would not want to be associated with Duke University in any way.

    1. If I were a North Carolina resident, I would want to be associated with the top-rated university in my state, which is also one of the top 15 private universities in America. I doubt that Duke is losing much by your refusal to associate with them.

      1. Hey TxUseful Idiot,

        “If I were a North Carolina resident, I would want to be associated with the top-rated university in my state,”

        That’s because you too are wallowing in the cesspool of wokeness. You apparently know nothing of their sordid recent history.

        “which is also one of the top 15 private universities in America.”

        They are only top-rated by their fellow commie bastards. Judging by the product our top private universities are turning out now, we as a nation are in deep shlt!

        “I doubt that Duke is losing much by your refusal to associate with them.”

        Yeah, I’m powerless when it comes to keeping my tax dollars from going to those blood-sucking leaches.

        1. I was being conservative. Some publications rank Duke as high as fifth among private universities. I guess your alma mater was downrated after somebody went to the library and colored in the book.

          The only sordid past I am aware of is that the University was founded with the proceeds from sale of a highly addictive substance that killed an estimated 100 million people worldwide in the 20th century alone. Of course, there is also the fact that the university opened in 1924 in a state that was 30% African-American, but did not admit its first Black undergraduate until 1963. Being a university with more than one coloring book, Duke does not hide its history (or the history of its region) from its students.

          Your tax dollars are going to public universities. I guess the distinction from private universities was explained in the part of the book that got colored.

          1. Hey TxUseful Idiot,

            “Some publications rank Duke as high as fifth among private universities.”

            To repeat, they are only top-rated by their fellow commie bastards.

            “The only sordid past I am aware of is that the bla bla bla…”

            Well that’s too bad. You should learn how to do research beyond google and wikipedia.

            Recently, Duke University promoted a fake hate crime hoax that destroyed many lives, got caught fudging research, and “mishandling” taxpayer funded grants.

            “Duke does not hide its history (or the history of its region) from its students.”

            Can you say straw man?

            “Your tax dollars are going to public universities.”

            Your implicit lie in that sentence is that private universities do not receive tax dollars. Are you a bold-faced liar or just plain stupid or both?

    2. @“Boris”: We can tell you have no association with higher education and are proud of your ignorance. Go back to Russia and find some nice oligarch to work for.

      Speak of communism, how about Orange Dotard’s crush on Chinese President Xi Jinping?
      “I like President Xi a lot. I consider him a friend, and – but I like him a lot. I’ve gotten to know him very well. He’s a strong gentleman, right? Anybody that – he’s a strong guy, tough guy.” (June 30, 2019). Grammar left uncorrected since it wouldn’t look normal for DJ Orange to finish one thought in one sentence.

      This display of dictator fellation is the tip of the iceberg of Donald J. Idiot, your favorite blowhard elitist New Yorker, lavishing praise on communist and authoritarian leaders.

      But you think it’s cool to hate universities in a democracy. You act like you don’t know a democracy by definition requires multiple candidates to compete for the right to serve. If they all came from one party, you’d have fascism in short order. Something you must enjoy, apparently.

      You and your Russian troll network have done nothing but advocate single-party rule for the USA every goddamn day.

      1. “@’Boris’: We can tell you have no association with higher education and are proud of your ignorance. Go back to Russia and find some nice oligarch to work for.”

        Awww, did the widdle snow fwake get twiggered? Maybe if you hug a golden retriever or something it might calm you down.

        I think I’ll go now and help Natasha plant another laptop on one the installed President Joseph Biden’s kids.

        One can tell they are over the target when the flack gets thick.
