At a press event in Cupertino, Calif., the newly appointed Apple CEO takes the stage. Tim Cook says, "I consider it a privilege of a lifetime to have worked here for almost 14 years, and I am very excited about this new role

-Good morning, good morning. This is my first product launch since being I'm CEO. I'm sure you didn't know about. It is a pleasure to host you today. I love Apple and I consider the privilege of a lifetime to work here to work here for almost 14 years and I am very excited about this new role. I wanna especially welcome to this campus. This campus serves as a kind of second home for many of us. So, sort of like inviting you in our home. In particular, I wanna welcome you to this room that that we call or town hall. This town hall has quite a history of Apple. Just 10 years ago, we launched the original iPod here and it went on to revolutionize the way we listen to music. And just one year go, we launched the new MacBook Air, which has fundamentally changed the way people think about notebook computers. Today, we'll remind you of the uniqueness of this company as we announce innovations from our mobile operating system to applications, to services, to hardware, and more importantly the integration of all of these into a powerful, yet simple and integrated experience.
