Eddy Cue denies pen-throwing incident in Haunted Empire book
Wednesday, March 19, 2014 @ 1:36pm

Apple's senior VP for Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue, is denying an incident mentioned in the recent Yukari Iwatani Kane book Haunted Empire: Apple After Steve Jobs. The book claims that at one point, Jobs threw a pen at Cue's face. Asked if the anecdote is true, Cue told a reporter "No it's not."



Cue is the second major Apple executive to cast doubt on Haunted Empire, following current CEO Tim Cook, who recently called the book "nonsense." Jobs was however infamous for his temper, and Apple executives have a vested interested in maintaining a positive image of both Jobs and the company's prospects, which together form the focus of Kane's writing. She has said that the book is based on about 200 interviews, including past and present Apple executives.
