I’m pretty sure it was not a secret, but it has no relevance to Apple. As long as the stock price performs well, then I’m a happy man.

Anyone who didn’t know Cook is gay is still using a Betamax.

All I care about is that he does his job honestly and well (plus isn’t a criminal and doesn’t molest animals and/or children). I view this in the same category as “oh, he went to my school”, or “he comes from my city”. Nice to know, but not defining–especially as I gather he has not been advertising his sexuality.
(I understand that Betamax was the favored system of engineering types, even though VHS won the wars. Me? I waited until the wars were over and the price came down to where I could afford one.)

But, but, doesn’t he know that his failure to come out and join the Borg, uh, I mean, communitah, is responsible for the deaths of thousands of LGBTQ geek youth? The personal, after all, is political.

That’s old news… Not sure how it’s relevant in the financial press.
As an engineer, I’d eat dirt for a job at Apple.

This is what happens when a bunch of ppl are aimlessly just sitting around and chatting shooting the breeze, oh and it’s on TV!
Morons. So much for liberal privacy.

I’m not a huge fan of Apple, despite using their products. Yeah, their products look nice and are easy to use, but that’s because they can’t do a whole lot. More style than substance.
That said, what does this matter? It’s not like Leftists think that all gays have a duty to further their political machinations… oh wait.

Could. Not. Give. A. Damn.
All that matters is how he does his job.
I hope the next thing they find out about him is that he owns a hundred AR-15s and has had each and every one of them legitimately converted to fire full auto, which he does every weekend while singing “The Star Spangled Banner” at the top of his lungs.
When will they learn that all the rest of the world gives a damn about is performance? By the time you’re homophobic enough not to buy Apple because the CEO is homosexual, you’re into Fred Phelps levels of hate, and nothing in the world is going to change your mind short of Jesus coming down to you on the road to Damascus and flipping the gay switch in your brain.

Jim Stewart is an a**h*le, OBVIOUSLY.

When I saw perturbed say he had 100 full auto AR-15s I had to look Cook up. Sadly he is a little too old for me.
