Do you know of those moments that you have the day off and take the opportunity to take a walk under the October sun through the center of Madrid? That is precisely what our colleague David Gómez is doing, who despite his well-deserved rest day has not been able to miss the opportunity to be seen by the Apple Store of Puerta del Sol in Madrid. And, curiosities of fate, there was Tim Cook himself , the CEO of Apple.
The leader of the Cupertino company takes advantage of his trip to Spain to meet “in situ” one of the most important Apple stores in the country, located at Km. 0 of Puerta del Sol . The CEO of the American company has appeared by surprise to learn about the establishment just a few hours before the is effective because, although the phone can be booked from last Friday, it is not until tomorrow when it gets for sale in Spain .
As expected, the stir caused by the presence of Tim Cook has attracted the attention of all kinds of onlookers. Both enthusiasts of the brand, as passionate about technology as passersby who could not guess who was the protagonist of all the photos. Some photos that the manager has not hesitated to get with the workers of the store or with anyone who asked for it.
What does Tim Cook do in Spain?
Although it may seem like a coincidence, Tim Cook has not come to Spain to attend the sale of the ; his latest smartphone to reach the market, but because today he has arranged a meeting with the President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sánchez. At 4.30 pm, the highest leader of Apple and the President meet in Moncloa to discuss issues that have not been given excessive information. However it is to imagine that the “Google rate” will have a special role in the talk of both.
The Google rate consists of a new tax on technology driven by the executive that was officially approved last week. Among its many epigraphs, includes a tax of 3% services and transactions of large technology. The visit to our country comes after the manager has been seen by other European countries such as France and Germany and it seems that it is the last stop of Tim Cook before his return to the United States.
