New The Late Show show host Stephen Colbert has announced that Apple CEO Tim Cook will be a guest on the Tuesday, September 15 episode of the program through a humorous tweet, showing an image of a delighted Colbert with his Apple Watch saying "Siri, put Apple CEO Tim Cook on my calendar for Tuesday, Sept. 15. Oh, and come up with some questions to ask him."

The new announcement marks another public appearance by Cook, who has taken to appearing in person on shows like Good Morning America to promote causes of interest to him or to promote specific products. Cook has a few more upcoming appearances this month and next, presumably to talk up the company's new product lineup, including updated Apple Watch casings and bands, and the latest iPhones and iPad models.

Three new Apple Stores announced for Nanjing, Florence, Brussels

As previously reported, the first Apple Store in Belgium will open this coming Saturday, September 19, in Brussels -- the same date as the company's 20th China store will debut in Nanjing. On the following Saturday, September 26, Apple's first store in Florence, Italy will be unveiled, the 16th Italian store. All three stores will open at 10AM local time on the respective Saturdays, offer free opening-day t-shirts to the first 500 customers, and will offer the full array of usual Apple Store services.



The Brussels store will be located on Avenue de la Toison d'Or, and be open Monday through Saturday between 10AM and 7PM. Apple has posted a two-minute video about the Brussels store, and its pre-opening art display of comic art, reflecting the city's heritage of the form. The Nanjing store will be located inside the Rainbow Joy shopping center, and will be open 10AM–10PM each day, while the Florence store will be in Piazza della Repubblica (Republic Square) and will be open from 10AM to 8PM daily.

Tim Cook really needs to step down.

Tons of bugs, slipping timelines, hundreds of SKU's for the same product, iTunes in shambles. WTF?

"WTF" is also an appropriate comment for your off-topic message, which has no bearing on anything mentioned in the article.

FYI: Stephen Colbert hosts The Late Show on CBS; Late Night is on NBC and is hosted by Seth Meyers.

It's not "hundreds of sku's" it's millions of sku's for the same product; however the original poster also failed to mention that each sku is different. So, if you have 40 million iPhone 6s's made, then you will have 40 million unique sku's for each of the same product. And incase somebody gets confused, I'm not saying 40 million sku's for one iPhone. Lol
