Apple CEO Tim Cook to Attend President Obama’s State of the Union Address

The Mercury News reports Apple CEO Tim Cook will be seated with First Lady Michelle Obama during the President’s State of the Union address, set to take place on Tuesday:

Apple CEO Tim Cook will sit in the First Lady’s box, a White House official said. He will be joined by military families, those championing immigration reform and those whose lives have been touched by gun violence

Last year, President Obama honoured the late Steve Jobs while his wife Laurene Powell sat in the First Lady’s box. Obama had this to say about Jobs:

“An economy built to last is one where we encourage the talent and ingenuity of every person in this country. That means women should earn equal pay for equal work. It means we should support everyone who’s willing to work and every risk-taker and entrepreneur who aspires to become the next Steve Jobs.”

Tomorrow, Tim Cook will also give the keynote speech at Goldman Sachs which was revised to take place first thing in the morning as opposed to the afternoon.
