The time was so sudden, it could have refrained in a millisecond. At a White House event Wednesday, President Donald Trump praised Apple CEO Tim Cook for his works to support the American workforce.
Tim Cook as “Tim Apple”
You’ve really put a big investment in our country,” Trump told Cook, who was sitting next to the president’s right. With continuing with his speech: “We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple.” Cook didn’t look to enrol the mistake at all. Cook didn’t openly endorse the change, but it didn’t get long for Apple fans to mark and spread the news.
The indiscretion circulated immediately on social media. If he was Tim Apple, then what about Mark Facebook, Bill Gates, Jeff Amazon and? And so on.
The Verges pointed out it wasn’t still Trump’s first point messing up an official name in such way; last year, he formerly called Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson “Marilyn Lockheed.”
No-one to refrain out on the fun, Cook simply turned his Twitter name to “Tim” on Thursday and an icon of the Apple logo, a coy nod to Trump’s mistake. Even nicer was that Cook’s inside joke was supposedly only obvious to people using Apple gadgets.
That’s not entirely surprising for Apple, which famously fancies its own devices and software over others. Apple didn’t reply to a question about the logo misstep (if indeed it was a misstep).
