New Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) CEO Tim Cook was interviewed at the AllThingsD conference. He said that Apple was looking carefully at the TV market. Beyond that, he spoke a great deal, but said very little, a habit he must have gotten from Apple founder, the late Steve Jobs. Cook “hinted” that new, great products would be released by Apple soon, but would not reveal if these were part of the current iPad, iPhone, and Mac product lines.
There are plenty of rumors that an iPhone 5 will be released later this year. But, how much of an evolution can it be from its predecessor or new and popular products from Samsung?
Cook also said that he would increase the level of privacy at Apple. He is clearly worried that competitors and rivals will get a sneak look at products in development.
