I’ve noticed a number of articles over the weekend, rescinding initial criticism of new Apple CEO Tim Cook. Many journalists were critical of Cook’s debut, including the BBC’s Rory Cellan-Jones who was particularly harsh in his assessment of Apple’s press conference on Tuesday.
So it’s humbling to see people like Rory taking stock and reviewing the comments, given the sad events that followed in the next few days. It’s quite clear now that Cook and his colleagues were under a dark cloud, knowing that the company’s founder and industry visionary would unfortunately not live to see the success of his latest products.
Well done Rory, I have a great deal of respect for you because of this.
