For the second year in a row, Apple will be represented at the State of the Union.
One year after Michelle Obama invited Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of the late Steve Jobs, to sit in her box at her husband’s annual address, Apple CEO Tim Cook will join the First Lady for Tuesday’s State of the Union.
Cook will sit alongside Obama, military families, immigration reform advocates, people affected by gun violence and Bobak Ferdowsi, a Mars Curiosity rover team member at NASA and Caltech’s Jet Propulsion.
Last year, Powell Jobs was joined by Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger.
On a conference call with analysts following last month’s earnings call, Cook was asked about the declining trends for Windows PCs and also Apple Macs. He made it clear that he sees the Windows market as far more vulnerable to the rise of tablets than the Mac market. He also reiterated that he believes tablets can ultimately become a bigger market than traditional PCs.
