  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:24:22 PM
    Apple shares now up over 1 percent, or $1.36, to $127.96.

    Yes, Apple won't see it, but will your insurance company ask for access eventually? And, how personally identifiable will data you submit to research projects be?
  • Tim Stevens 3/9/2015 5:24:49 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:24:59 PM
    Researchers all saying there's a need to transform how we do research. And iPhone can help with that. Can help design the apps for clinical studies, etc.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:25:28 PM
    Kind of interesting that Williams introduced this, not Craig Federighi, the software chief.

  • Tim Stevens 3/9/2015 5:27:44 PM
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:27:48 PM
    Big applause for ResearchKit. Seems to hit the right non-commercial note with the audience here.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:28:07 PM
    Williams: We're going to add to ResearchKit over time, but we wanted anybody anywhere to contribute. We're going to make this open source
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:28:17 PM
    Apple plus open source, two terms you rarely hear in the same breath.
  • Tim Stevens 3/9/2015 5:28:20 PM

    There's some guy to my left who keeps shouting "Woo!" to pretty much everything.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:28:55 PM
    Williams: Brilliant and motivated research community out there. Can't wait to see what they do with it.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:28:57 PM
    Cook's back up
  • Scott Stein 3/9/2015 5:29:08 PM
    A big bellow for "open source" from one guy.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:29:15 PM
    Cook: The iPhone continues to change so many things in our lives. Confident research will transform medical research
  • Tim Stevens 3/9/2015 5:29:20 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:29:21 PM
    Cook: Next up, I'd like to talk about the Mac
  • Scott Stein 3/9/2015 5:29:27 PM
    There's an iPad on the slide on stage, FYI
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:29:32 PM
    Cook: This is the strongest Mac lineup we ever have had.
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:29:43 PM
    Ok, now I'm excited It's Mac time.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:29:55 PM

  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:30:14 PM

  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:30:20 PM
    Apple’s Mac business might not be as big -- as or a sexy -- as its mobile business, but it remains an important focus for Apple.
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:30:31 PM
    Intel released its mainstream 5th-gen Core i chips in January at CES, so they're starting to filter into shipping hardware now, such as Dell XPS 13.
  • dan.ackerman 3/9/2015 5:30:53 PM
    Cook is talking about learning from iPhone and iPad design for computers.
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:30:54 PM
    Cook: The definition of portabilty has changed in the last several years, led by iPhone and iPad. So we challenged ourselves to take everything learned in designing iPhone and iPad and do something incredibly ambitious and bold
  • Tim Stevens 3/9/2015 5:31:05 PM
  • Tim Stevens 3/9/2015 5:31:07 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 5:31:12 PM
