Description: (Reuters) - Apple Inc CEO Tim Cook on Thursday became the most prominent American corporate leader to come out as gay, saying he was trading his closely guarded privacy for the chance to help move civil rights forward. The 53-year-old Alabama native and self-described "son of the South", who has spoken out against discrimination of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, declared his sexual orientation in a magazine editorial, confirming a fact widely known in the close-knit Silicon Valley tech community but rarely discussed. Cook's announcement comes as gay marriage is becoming widespread, but the nation remains divided over gay rights. Same-sex marriage is legal in thirty-two U.S. states and in polls a majority support same-sex marriage, with a clear generational divide between younger Americans who are more likely to support it and older ones who are less likely. "I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me," Cook said in an article he wrote in Bloomberg Businessweek. He invoked civil rights luminaries Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King in his long essay. "I don’t pretend that writing this puts me in their league. All it does is allow me to look at those pictures and know that I’m doing my part, however small, to help others. We pave the sunlit path toward justice together, brick by brick. This is my brick." The fact the chief executive of the most valuable U.S. publicly traded company felt he could disclose his sexual preference in such a public way, and with the backing of the company's chairman, shows how times have changed.

Description: The world was aghast last week when Apple stunned investors by guiding its revenue down. After all, Apple was just crowned a member of the Trillion-Dollar Club on Aug. 2. But if you’ve been reading my columns, you know that while I was and remain a huge fan of CEO Tim Cook’s integrity, Apple has sorely lacked in its ability to innovate for years. They’ve mastered the iteration rather well, from iPhone 1 to, presumably, the iPhone 17XZ. Capital has been deployed in stock buybacks and dividends — two things that great growth companies should shy away from. Cook may be the best adult in the room in Silicon Valley, but he is everything Steve Jobs was not and not much of what he was. To be sure, Cook is a kind, caring, thoughtful and safe leader, but Jobs was a wildly rebellious, creative genius who deemed nothing impossible. Cook highlighted that China accounted for over 100 percent of Apple’s sales slowdown. To me, China is a red herring for a rapidly maturing smartphone market in which Apple hasn’t diversified enough or expanded into new operating markets. For example, there’s a huge opening for entrée into “safe” social media. Or let’s see some software-based, business-oriented sales and marketing products. Or how about data gathering for corporate users with a new twist — integrity? Why not become a new player in the automotive world, or air travel? Apple has the money to do it. China is in a slowdown. Like Americans, the Chinese have probably cut back on their unnecessary purchases — like the newest iteration of the iPhone. It’s time for Apple to lose the stifling “stay safe and count our money” posture. It needs rebellious, creative genius to succeed going forward.
