Follow-up: Cook meets Netanyahu for lunch at Apple HQ

updated 11:55 pm EST, Thu March 6, 2014

Short video clip made available by Israeli PM's office

As reported previously, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met on Wednesday with Apple CEO Tim Cook at Apple headquarters as part of a California-driven initiative to strengthen commercial ties between the state and Israel. In a short video posted to the prime minister's official YouTube channel, Netanyahu can be seen touring Apple's headquarters and posing with Cook ahead of a lunch meeting.

The two men met next a large quote from company co-founder Steve Jobs, which reads "If you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what's next." Netanyahu, after reading it, turned to Cook and joked that "you can't ask that of government." Cook laughed and replied, "no, I wish we could."

Apple has a number of direct connections to the Jewish state, with three research and devlopment sites in the country, and has also recently bought an Israeli company called PrimeSense, best known for its work on the original Microsoft Kinect. The company also specializes in various sensors, middle-ware and motion-sensing and 3D scanning technologies.

The two men held a "working luncheon" meeting in the executive board room, and Cook is heard to be mentioning "R&D skill" in his conversation with Netanyahu, presumably referring to the investment Apple has made in Israel. Also of note, Apple legal and governmental affairs chief Bruce Sewell is sitting next to Cook in the video.

    Glad to see Apple is not following the executive branches' anti-semitic model.

    Eh, pointlessly inflammatory, Jack.
