• Tim Cook Makes Late Night Debut on Stephen Colbert



    He's far from a staple of late night talk shows. But a familiar face from the tech world got some couch time last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

    Apple's well-respected CEO stopped by the NY-based show to talk about the company's new flagship iPhone 6s, self-driving electric cars, social responsibility, Steve Jobs, human/civil rights, and more.

    Oh, and there were plenty of jokes in the process -- including a crack by Colbert that he will stab Cook in the neck with a fork if Apple changes the charger design on another iPhone.

    In one of the more serious moments of the interview, Cook explained to Colbert how Apple takes social responsibility more seriously than ever, ensuring that those who help to build Apple products around the world understand their rights as human beings.

    "We've taken it across the board," Cook said of the company's commitment to worker rights and fair treatment. "You know, in our supply chain we train everybody on their rights, and that's their rights as we see them, and we have a really high bar. And so we do a lot of things. We bring college classes to our manufacturing plants, because we want people to grow and move up their own career ladder."

    Before the interview concluded, Colbert jokes that Siri had some interview questions for Cook. When Colbert activated Siri, the virtual assistant said: "Do me a favor. Ask him when I'm going to get a raise."

    Clips for the interview are available now on The Late Show's YouTube channel here.
