demographics there also being incredibly great for a consumer brand
and for people that really want the best products," Cook had said

Shah Rukh Khan waved and showered flying kisses to fans off the pitch as his team Kolkata Knight Riders, was with son AbRam.
Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan waved and showered flying kisses to fans off the pitch as his team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) battled it out against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Eden Gardens here on Wednesday.
Nearly halfway through KKR's innings, Khan — clad in a white T-shirt and sporting a beard — was first flashed on the giant screen having a balloon fight with son AbRam.
He later realised the loud Eden cheers were for him and the "Dilwale" star acknowledged the love by standing up and waving.
The superstar then took AbRam on his lap and playfully hit him on the head with the KKR balloon.
The fan page of Shah Rukh Khan shared a video of the father and the son together.
Earlier in the day, Khan had tweeted about his arrival which was also his first 'home match' this season.
"Practising our dance moves lil AbRam and me as we prep for our first match in Kolkata. Ami Kolkata here we come… see you all at the Garden," SRK posted on Twitter.
While YRF's latest offering, Fan, is an out-and-out Shah Rukh Khan film, there are many who worked silently in the background to make Fan look like it did on the big screen. One of them is Ken Metzker, a colourist for the Maneesh Sharma film.
Metzker recently said that Fan was a difficult project because to work on because it is heavy on VFX.
Shah Rukh plays a double role in Fan and his character of Gaurav Channa was made to look younger by digitally reconstructed the actor's face using VFX. Metzker worked in close coordination with cinematographer Manu Anand to ensure a realistic grade (colour) for both the live action and the VFX elements in the images.
"Working with Manu (Anand) was a truly enriching experience... Grading a movie as heavy on VFX as Fan is always a challenge and we worked closely together to ensure that the overall look of the movie was consistent with the director's vision for the film," he said. "We are all extremely thrilled about the final film and I look forward to working with Manu again soon," he added.
Prime Focus began work on Fan in November 2014 when 20-30 shots of the film were tested and the final look of 'Gaurav' was locked in. Over 500 hours were spent grading the VFX plates and fine-tuning the colour of the movie which released last Friday.
Finally the much awaited Shah Rukh Khan's 'Fan' hit the theatres and created shock waves all over. 'Fan' is not only applauded by the fans but also the film is getting critical acclaim.
According to the trade experts, 'Fan' has earned 52.35 crores net box office collection in first weekend beating the 42.50 crore net of 'Airlift'. 'Fan' has also leaded the chart in the highest day 1 collection of 2016 so far. The film has recorded fairly good numbers in Mumbai, Delhi, UP, West Bengal and Mysore and even other circuits.
