Tim Cook Visits ‘Kitchen Stories’ Developers and Furniture Maker Dula on German Trip

Following a trip to France, Tim Cook today toured Germany, where he made a number of stops to visit furniture maker Dula, the developers behind the Kitchen Stories app, and the team at Refinery29.



Cook has been documenting his trip on Twitter, sharing a number of photos at each site. Before leaving France, he made one last stop to visit the Marché Saint-Germain Apple Store, where he met with staff, iOS developers, and Apple customers. It was his second visit to an Apple Store following a stop in Marseille earlier this week.






He then headed to Vreden, Germany, where he met with Dula. Dula is a furniture manufacturer that works with Apple to create some of the furniture and hardware used in Apple’s retail stores.







Cook took a tour of the factory and then headed to Berlin to meet with the developers behind the Kitchen Stories app. Created by two women in 2014, Kitchen Stories is a recipe app that walks users through each step using photos and videos.



During his time at Kitchen Stories, Cook also met with Refinery29 for an exclusive interview where he talked about women in the workplace, diversity, wage gaps, and more.






Cook was specifically questioned about the German start up scene, where just 13.9 percent of lead roles are held by women. According to Cook, improving that rate hinges on a work environment that “encourages and motivates women to participate.” He went on to say that it’s a problem that needs to be tackled early in life, in schools, with young women encouraged to enter the STEM field.



Pay equality was also a subject, and Cook explained that Apple pays all employees equally regardless of gender, something all companies should do.
You know, we’re probably an outsider, but we pay well and we pay 100% the same. We make a long-term evaluation every year, in order to maintain that. And if we only notice once that someone earns only 99.8% of the salary of another, then we do everything we can to make up for it. I think every company should try to do it. It’s just not right and not fair that women still earn so much less than men.

Cook’s full comments can be read over at Refinery29, but the original interview is in German and will need to be translated.



Following his short trip to Germany, Cook will head to Scotland on Wednesday where he will accept an honorary degree from the University of Glasgow.

When life gives you auto exhaust, make ink

AirInk markers are being made in a variety of sizes

There’s a lot of carbon in automobile exhaust. Carbon is also used as a pigment in black ink. The guys at Singapore-based Graviky Labs have combined the one with the other, by harvesting carbon from vehicles’ tailpipes to make their own eco-friendly AirInk. It’s currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign.

Got asthma? A SPLUNC1 inhaler might one day come to your rescue

A new protein-based asthma inhaler could be coming soon

In general, hyper-responsiveness doesn’t seem like a bad trait; it’s certainly something you’d like from your cell phone company. But in the lungs, hyper-responsiveness is a major hallmark of asthma, a condition wherein the airways inflame and restrict breathing. Researchers at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine believe they may have found a protein that can combat this extreme reaction of the lungs, which could one day wind up in an inhaler to help asthmatics regain normal respiratory function in the face of an attack… Continue Reading Got asthma?

Hands on with the new Xbox One dashboard, Guide, multitasking and more

Microsoft is working on a brand-new Xbox One dashboard for the Windows 10 Creators Update. Here’s our first look at all the new goodies.

The Windows 10 Creators Update is expected to roll out to all Windows 10 devices, including Xbox, this spring. The update is themed primarily around content creation, but you can expect various other bells and whistles, as well as the regular optimizations and improvements.

Xbox will also benefit from the Creators’ wave, picking up Beam-streaming integration and other features. For this first build, however, Microsoft took to revamping the dashboard, the Guide menu, and the way multitasking works. Here are some early impressions, but of course, all things are subject to change.

Ford makes the next family Expedition smarter and lighter

The new Ford Expedition has been on a crash diet

They might have a reputation for being thirsty old dinosaurs, but big family four-wheel drives are getting smarter with every generation. The new Ford Expedition has grown in every direction, but an aluminum-intensive body and smarter powertrain options mean it uses less fuel, tows more weight and handles better than before.

Jimmy Iovine on Apple Music: ‘We’re Trying to Make it a Cultural Point of Reference’

Jimmy Iovine, who leads Apple Music alongside Eddy Cue, Dr. Dre, Trent Reznor, and Larry Jackson, recently sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Variety covering everything from Apple’s goals with the streaming service to its experimentation with exclusives.



Though Jimmy Iovine has no official title at Apple, going by just “Jimmy,” he has negotiated many of the streaming deals for the service and has been a key team member since Apple purchased Beats Music in 2014. “Apple, of all the global tech companies, was the one that understood why artists make things,” Iovine said, explaining why he had a close relationship with Apple even before the acquisition.






Since its debut, Apple Music has grown to 20 million subscribers, with 10 million added in 2016 alone. Much of that can be attributed to Apple’s evolving focus, first on exclusives and now on video. Apple is adding original content to Apple Music, in the form of two TV shows – a reality series based on Carpool Karaoke and drama that will star Dr. Dre.



Iovine wouldn’t go into detail about Apple’s future plans for original content, but he explained that Apple’s goal is to make Apple Music “a cultural point of reference.” He says Apple’s work on original content shouldn’t be compared to other entertainment companies like Netflix.

Iovine, asked if he sees Apple Music attempting to become competitive with the likes of Netflix in the original-content sphere, demurs. “I wouldn’t put it that way,” he says. “When I read that, or I read that we’re taking on whomever, I say no. To me it’s all one thing. It’s Apple Music, and it happens to have video and audio. … It has nothing to do with what Netflix is doing.”

On the topic of exclusive content, which has created conflict between Apple and both its competitors and record labels, Iovine says Apple is “just experimenting.” He says his work with Apple hasn’t caused problems with former colleagues in the music business, despite the bitterness over exclusive content.

“I don’t lean on [exclusives] too heavily myself,” he says. “We did ‘em. We’ll do some more. But we’re just experimenting. I just know that if something feels right and someone wants to, we’re willing to do it, to help them really market their record, get the word out, and spend what it deserves.”

According to Iovine, the key to Apple’s continued success in the music industry is an ability to “speak both languages,” referring to the harmonizing of technology and music. He believes there’s room in the streaming music industry for many companies, as long as “streaming is done right,” with each service being culturally different with a unique feel. “Yeah, they all have the same catalog,” he said.” But what we’re doing is we’re just building on top of that. That’s where the personality and the feel will come from.”



Iovine’s full interview, which covers a range of additional topics like his childhood, early jobs, close relationship with Dr. Dre, the founding of Beats Music, Beats 1 Radio, and subscription streaming models, can be read over at Variety and is worth checking out for those who want an inside look at Apple Music.
