Tim Cook Talks Trump and ‘Great’ Macs To Come

Apple CEO Tim Cook seems to be taking some heat from his employees following his attendance at a meeting between the family of President-elect Donald Trump and a number of leaders in the technology sector. An unidentified employee posted a question to Cook on the company?EU?s internal message board addressing the meeting directly, according to TechCrunch.

"Last week you joined other tech leaders to meet President-elect Donald Trump. How important is it for Apple to engage with governments?" the employee asked. Trump has been unpopular with Silicon Valley, both for the criticism he leveled at the industry during the campaign and for policies he has championed such as the creation of a government registry of individuals by religion and the deportation of millions of immigrants, which are viewed as detrimental to the tech industry.

Desktops Are 'Strategic' for Apple

Cook (pictured above) also responded to an employee's question about whether Mac desktops were strategic for Apple, according to TechCrunch.

"The desktop is very strategic for us. It?EU?s unique compared to the notebook because you can pack a lot more performance in a desktop -- the largest screens, the most memory and storage, a greater variety of I/O, and fastest performance," Cook said, according to TechCrunch. "So there are many different reasons why desktops are really important, and in some cases critical, to people."

The current generation iMac is the "best desktop" the company has ever made, he said, adding that its Rrtina 5K display is the "best desktop display in the world."

"Some folks in the media have raised the question about whether we?EU?re committed to desktops. If there?EU?s any doubt about that with our teams, let me be very clear: we have great desktops in our roadmap," Cook said, although he didn't get into specifics. "Nobody should worry about that."
