Oops - Was That a Faux Pas?

Simon Hobbs, co-host of CNBC’s Squawk on the Street, seems to have outed Apple’s CEO Tim Cook on his show late last week. He and a panel were discussing a new book called “Glass Closet” about gay CEOs, and Hobbs said that “Cook is fairly open about the fact that he’s gay… isn’t he?”

To call the silence that followed awkward is to do the silence a disservice.

While Apple supports many LGBT causes, Cook has never commented on his sexuality.

And he doesn’t appear to hold any grudge against Hobbs. Although, in an odd coincidence, Hobbs’ Smart Phone, iPod, iPad, Mac and Mac Book don’t seem to be working anymore. Hmmm…
