Apple CEO Tim Cook talks about building Mac computers in the USA

tim cook appleIn Timothy D. Cook’s first television interview since taking over from, Steve Jobs, he talks about Apple’s plans including building a line of Mac computers in the USA.

Cook, who joined Apple in 1998, said he believes it’s important to bring more jobs to the United States. Apple would not reveal where exactly the Macs will be manufactured.

“When you back up and look at Apple’s effect on job creation in the United States, we estimate that we’ve created more than 600,000 jobs now,” said Cook.

“I loved Steve dearly, and miss him dearly,” Cook told NBC’s Brian Williams. “And one of the things he did for me, that removed a gigantic burden that would have normally existed, is he told me, on a couple of occasions before he passed away, to never question what he would have done. Never ask the question, ‘What Steve would do,’ to just do what’s right.”

Apple today is worth about 43 percent more than when Cook took over.
