Apple CEO Tim Cook will speak at today's Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference beginning at 7:15 a.m. PST. If you would like to listen to Cook's presentation, you're in luck as Apple is providing a live audio feed via the company's website. To listen to the presentation, click here. As we mentioned earlier this week, this is the second time in as many years that Cook has addressed the conference as CEO. It isn’t often when an Apple CEO speaks in public. When they do, it often makes news. In 2012, for example, Cook used his address at the conference to discuss the tablet market, Apple’s growth, and the company’s worker responsibility policies. Specifically, Cook suggested that expanding his company’s products into China, Brazil, and other locations was very important moving forward. Recent rumors suggest that Apple will release a less expensive iPhone for these developing areas later this year. The Apple CEO also addressed the conference in 2010 when he was the company's COO. Cook has a busy day planned. Later tonight, he will sit alongside Michelle Obama as her husband gives his annual State of the Union address. Last year, the first lady’s guests included Steve Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, and one of the co-founders of Instagram, Mike Krieger.
