Tim Cook -- a man who is totally, definitely running for US president soon -- is not like you or me. Besides vast wealth and power, the Apple executive seems trapped in a kernel panic of identical talking points, all of which The New York Times' Andrew Ross Sorkin allowed him to rehash this morning in a Dealbook piece loudly titled, "Apple's Tim Cook Barnstorms for 'Moral Responsibility'."
In the wake of Donald Trump's refusal to simply condemn the actions of white supremacists at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, business leaders, politicians, pundits, and many more have issued statements making it clear that racism can not be tolerated.

Controversial Uber CEO Travis Kalanick received a career retrospective profile in the New York Times today that covers his awkward early years and his propensity to invite conflict.

Tech titans like SpaceX's Elon Musk, Apple's Tim Cook and IBM's Gini Rometty have all met with President Trump during his first two months in office. But it was always under a cloud of suspicion about the true motives of tech's biggest names. We now have a hint about Phase II of Operation Tech Oligarchy.
Back in October, it seemed like the smartwatch, specifically Apple's variant, was as close to dead as a product selling over a million units can be. Market intelligence firm IDC reported that smartwatch sales were down across the board with the Apple Watch seeing a 71.6 per cent decline since last year. In a massive understatement IDC's Jitesh Ubrani said, "It has also become evident that at present smartwatches are not for everyone."
Virtual reality has been the promise of the future for generations. And it keeps getting better with each passing year. But I remain sceptical that it's going to become mainstream any time soon.
