Tim Cook interview at the Goldman Sachs tech conference

I’m linking here to Apple’s investor relations site. Tim Cook is still speaking as I write this, and I assume there will be an audio replay of his interview up for a while. (Here’s a transcript by Jordan Golson for MacRumors.)

It’s worth a listen, not because of what he says — mostly stuff we’ve heard from him or Steve Jobs in the past — but because of how he’s saying it. You can really hear more personality in his voice, more jokes, and more comfort and confidence in his role. It doesn’t sound nearly as scripted as his monologues on Apple’s earnings calls, for instance.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how Tim Cook shapes Apple in his own vision, not just whatever he thinks Steve Jobs would have done.
