The man with Apple's future in his hands

A personal account of the new Apple CEO from a former employee:

Tim Cook is one of those rare people who stop and think before speaking. Standing in the same room with him I realized that he's comfortable with silence as long as that silence is productive and appropriate. He's not like other tech execs who ramble almost immediately and incoherently at any question lobbed at them, as if doing so will convince others they know everything about everything.

Fascinating. And somewhat reassuring.
