It looks like content boss Eddy Cue has joined Apple CEO Tim Cook for the Sun Valley Conference in Utah, potentially indicating that the two are looking to iron out content issues relating to Apple’s forthcoming products during the four-day event.
Cook’s presence at the well-known conference recently sparked rumors concerning the company’s anticipated “Apple HDTV” (or “iTV“), namely because the so-called “King of Cable” Liberty Media Corp. Chairman John Malone will be present at Sun Valley.
Now, it has been revealed in a Twitter update from Bloomberg’s Jon Erlichman that Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, has joined Cook on his expedition. When asked if the pair had a big week ahead, Cook is said to have replied, “We’ll see,” before hitting the road with Cue at his side.
In previous years, Cue has helped develop the iTunes Store, App Store, and iBookstore, along with the Apple Online Store, Siri, Maps, iAd, and iCloud, and the “Apple veteran” so far has 24-years of experience with the Cupertino, Calif. company. In particular, his impressive dealmaking skills are said to have contributed to the launch of iTunes Radio and the AT&T-exclusive iPhone.
Could it be that Cook and Cue are set to double-team an Apple HDTV deal? Here’s hoping.
