Live coverage of Apple CEO Tim Cook's interview at D10Tonight at 6 p.m. Pacific, 9 p.m. Eastern, Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook will sit down for a live interview at the D10 conference. AppleInsider is at the event in Southern California, and will provide full live coverage.
AppleInsider's up-to-the-second coverage of Cook's interview at D10 will be provided live at this link when the highly anticipated talk begins later this evening.
Tonight's interview with Cook kicks off the conference, hosted by All Things D and The Wall Street Journal at the Terranea Resort in Ranchos Palos Verdes, Calif. Tonight's event marks Cook's first appearance at the D conference, and his first time appearing onstage at an event not run by Apple or investors since he became CEO last August.
Another speaker at this year's D10 conference will be screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Just last week, it was revealed that Sorkin, who wrote the award winning film "The Social Network," will pen a script adapting Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs into a Hollywood film.
Jobs made a total of six appearances at the All Things D conference, including the 8th annual event in 2010. There he spoke candidly about a number of topics, including his company's opposition to Adobe Flash on iOS, as well as the prototype iPhone 4 that was lost in a bar.
Jobs also took part in a historic interview in 2007, when he shared the stage with Microsoft founder Bill Gates for an interview conducted by journalist Walt Mossberg.
Other speakers at this year's D10 conference include Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Federal Trade Commission Chairman Jon Leibowitz, entrepreneur Sean Parker, and Zynga CEO Mark Pincus.
