On-the-record interviews by Apple CEO Tim Cook are as rare as hen’s teeth, so Business Week’s long Q&A is getting plenty of attention today. Manufacturing strategy and corporate culture are more of the focus, but there’s some fulsome praise for SVP Eddy Cue, who’s now heading up all the company’s services. “We’ve got services all in one place, and the guy that’s running that has incredible skills in services, has an incredible track record, and I’m confident will do fantastic things,” says Cook. As he would, of course. He also reserves some barbs for the iPad’s tablet rivals. “I don’t doubt that there will be units sold in other tablets,” says Cook. “But what I strongly believe is that many people that are doing so might feel good initially if they pay a low price, but will bring it home and start to use it, and they’re no longer satisfied. That good feeling is gone. And those people don’t repeat purchases.”
