Apple CEO Tim took today met with Coast Guard Admiral Karl Schultz, according to a photo that Schultz shared today on Twitter.

Schultz said that he and Cook shared "ideas, perspectives, and experiences" though there was no specific detail on what the two discussed during the meeting.


"Our industries are different, but our purpose is similar - do the best for our people, provide the highest level of service possible, and make a positive impact in the world," wrote Schultz.

As 9to5Mac points out, Apple has teamed up with the Coast Guard in the past. Following 2017's Hurricane Harvey, the Coast Guard used helicopters equipped with iPads to coordinate search and rescue teams.

I suspect Tim Cook wakes up at 3 am each day, surfs the Internet at home, shower, makes break fast, leaves for the Apple campus, arrives at work, surfs the Internet until 12, has lunch, surfs Internet from 1 to 3 pm, takes a walk around the circle, goes back to his office, surfs the Internet until 5:30 PM, commutes home, makes dinner, showers, surfs the Internet until 9 pm then goes to bed. Wakes up then does it all over again until he probably has to practice a few lines how to read the content on the prompter for a new product launch and occasional meet and greets like this.

Steve Jobs once said he was worried about him to the extent he had to call his mother to find out what’s going on. I hope someone is worried about Tim these days.

"our purpose is similar ... and make a positive impact in the world"
I wonder what this Schultz guy could make of a global impact. He would thus assume he would even have an impact me.

His comment is Americanism at its best: i do something good for American equals I do something good for the world.... NOT!

America is part of the world. Plus it’s just an expression. As in: Each of us doing something positive is hoping to put some good out into the world. Jeez.

Throw away anything that has GPS then. His service is responsible for all non-aviation civilian use of GPS worldwide.

I hope you’re joking. Cook is a notorious workaholic. Steve called his mother because he was worried Tim was sacrificing his social life by working too hard. One doesn’t get picked by Steve to become the COO of Apple by surfing the internet all day.

Was Tim Cook 12 at the time? Seems odd that a grown man’s mother would be the person to ask about his social life.

Astonishing you believe that’s what he does. And that’s all it takes to get Apple where it is today.

Wouldn’t be shocked at al if he’s working 80 - 100+ hours a week.

Well, that’s Jobs. Socially awkward at times.

For a guy’s primary computing device which is an iPad, he ain’t no workaholic. In fact, I think he’s bored to death and is waiting on 2021 to cash out.

I remember a news reporter visited the campus and just decided to ask him some non tech questions. He asked Tim, so, what are you listening to on your iPhone, name one of your favorite artists.

To say the guy struggled would be an understatement. For companies foundation which is based on creativity, naming three artists and few songs (even if it’s a lie). Jobs would pave that guy with answers: Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Bob Marley and Wailers, Dean Martin.

Tim is too much of a droid. The next CEO needs to be neck deep in companies culture, not just the bean counting. Tim only needs to look at the numbers only once per week. Spend 3 hours each day at the Design Studio and learn a thing or two.

America is not part of the world?

Or are you saying you are not doing something good for the world unless you help every single person in the worlds? Or maybe you have to help at least one person in each country?

In any case, by whatever your standard is, here are some people who didn't do something good for the world: Mother Teresa. Gandhi. Nelson Mandela. Martin Luther King. All those people pretty much stuck to doing good in only one country. You set a high bar, man.

If you think someone's computing device defines their workload you must be delusional. That's not to mention he directs operations, which an iPad is more than capable of accomplishing. Clearly you don't have any understanding of what people in his position does.

So your definition of a good CEO is the ability to name artists? Liking music does not make you creative and vice versa.

Wow you know so much about his everyday life - Guess it's just a walk in the (Apple) park to be CEO of one of the biggest companies on the planet - And guess the board just gives him a free pass to do what ever the f*** he want's.... Well think again.. He can't simply just choose to sit around and do nothing. The board will swap him for someone with a better skillset if that's the case. Wake up buddy
