Apple's Cook & Cue make Vanity Fair 'New Establishment' list as Cook pays tribute to Steve Jobs

Apple executives Tim Cook and Eddy Cue both claimed spots in Vanity Fair's annual "New Establishment" list on Wednesday, even as Cook once again paid tribute to his famous predecessor —Steve Jobs —on the fifth anniversary of his death.




Cook as CEO managed 11th place on the Vanity Fair list, while Cue, senior VP of internet software and services, took 54th. The New Establishment feature ranks "Silicon Valley hotshots, Hollywood moguls, Wall Street titans, and cultural icons."

Cue's inclusion is linked to his division becoming "an increasingly important part of Apple's future," referring specifically to Apple Music. That service is said to be dipping Apple's toes into "music-themed programming and other forms of content," a given example being the spinoff of The Late Late Show's "Carpool Karaoke" into an Apple-exclusive series.

Two other people with Apple connections on the list include Disney CEO Bob Iger, who sits on the Apple board, and Laurene Powell Jobs. Thanks to the estate she inherited from her former husband, Laurene is one of the richest women in the world, with a net worth of about $17 billion. Much of this money is being poured into the Emerson Collective, a group dedicated to causes like education, immigration reform, and the environment.




Cook posted his tribute to Steve Jobs on Twitter, as he has regularly since joining the social network in 2013. He took over as CEO less than two months before Jobs died of pancreatic cancer, and has since faced intense scrutiny, as investors and Apple fans alike have hoped he can continue the company's financial success and product innovation.
