• Tim Cook and Eddy Cue Attend Fourth Sun Valley Conference in idaho



    Apple CEO, Tim Cook, returned to the fourth Sun Valley conference in Idaho this week where he and Eddy Cue with several high-power executives from media, tech, politics, etc. Cook was spotted talking with several including Bill Gates, IBM chief Ginni Rometty, Pinterest’s Ben Silbermann and others since the start of the Sun Valley Retreat.

    For those of you who didn’t know, the Sun Valley Retreat, which is hosted by the investment firm, Allen & Company, each year attracts roughly 300 high-profile executives from a wide sampling of industries, though a good portion of them tend to be from the tech sector. Activities include lectures, panels and round tables where industry experts discuss topics of the day. That being said, the conference is best known for being the home to new deals, many of which tend to be struck behind closed doors.

    One of the reporters at the conference was able to ask Cook how he felt about the Apple Watch, alluding towards recent reports of stagnant sales. Cook declined to answer but did give a thumbs up as he passed by. Another point of interest was that a spokesman to the US Department of Defense confirmed that Secretary of Defense, Ashton Carter, took part in a panel discussion regarding “the importance of a strong partnership between the private sector innovators and the government.” This talk could specifically b in relation to government surveillance programs and requests for access to data stored on or generated by consumer products.

    We’ll have to wait and see if any details regarding the conference are revealed.
