Tim Cook taking Apple’s FBI fight to ABC News with David Muir interview tonight

ABC News has announced that Tim Cook will be speaking with World News Tonight host David Muir to discuss the ongoing battle between Apple and the FBI. The interview will no doubt be Apple’s latest move to push its message on privacy forward as it has been at odds with the Department of Justice over strong encryption.

ABC News now available on Apple TV in Europe & Scandinavia, no subscription required

ABC News, which was added to Apple TV in the U.S. last year as a dedicated channel, has now made it across the Atlantic to Europe and Scandinavia, reports iFun. The channel offers both live and recorded shows, including local news broadcasts from a number of US cities, handy for expat residents and anyone interested in an American take on the news.

ABC first made it to Apple TV in 2013 with a Watch ABC channel, but it required a cable subscription to view it. ABC News is free to view. The company revealed last year that Apple TV owners watch 50% more live ABC News video than desktop and mobile users combined.

ABC News has featured exclusive interviews with both Tim Cook (including a fun moment) and Jony Ive.

Updated thanks to reader comments that it is also available in the UK, France, Sweden and Hungary, so likely across the region.

We’re not the only ones used to calling it the iWatch – even Tim Cook slips up

I tweeted earlier that it’s going to take a while to get used to referring to the Apple Watch instead of iWatch, and it seems I’m in good company. As The Verge noted, even Tim Cook said iWatch during his ABC News interview when talking about US jobs created by the company.

Developers writing applications for iPhone and iPad and Mac and now, of course, as of today, the iWatch

The question is, was the slip-up because Cook spends too much time reading tech sites, or was it that Apple originally intended to release it as the iWatch, having a change of mind some way down the line?

iWatch was (and I think still is) the obvious name for the product. Apple Watch feels awkward in comparison. As Mike Beasley observed, Apple Phone or Apple Tablet doesn’t have the same ring as iPhone and iPad, so why not iWatch? It surely can’t just be that Apple was miffed that the tech press has been using the term so long it felt it had to prove us wrong?

Earlier this week, ABC News teased an exclusive look at Apple’s newly-revealed product lineup. Today, the network put the first clip from that segment online, giving viewers a peek at an interiew with Tim Cook conducted right after the press event. Now ABC anchor David Muir has posted another clip, this time featuring Apple’s design chief Jony Ive.

In the clip, Ive notes that the entire Apple Watch project has been in development for about three years and discusses the “millions” of possible band, face, and casing combinations that make up the full family of wearables.

You can view the two-minute video below. The full interview aired earlier this evening, but is not yet available online.
