Tim Cook on respect, dignity, and self-driving cars

CNN's Christiane Amanpour talks to Apple's CEO Tim Cook about his decision to come out as gay, the empathy that's given him towards minority groups, his beliefs on dignity and respect for all people, how he sees his legacy, Jeff Bezos and Laurene Powell Jobs buying media companies and working on the news, and Apple's future with autonomous technology — including and beyond self-driving cars.

CNN published the gist last month but the video just went up yesterday, and Cook is far better watched than read here. Great interview.
