Sources close to Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook say the 46-year-old family man has increasingly been drawn to forbidden fruit.
“He’s been battling with it for three years now, said an Apple source close to Cook. “For three long years there’s been this temptation… right there… on cable television…
“But there’s just no getting around it. It was time to admit it to himself. And recently he’s come to embrace the fact that, yes, he’s BSG-curious.”
Cook has reportedly decided to succumb to temptation and experiment with the Battlestar Galactica lifestyle by downloading the miniseries premier on the iTunes Store and seeing if he likes it.
“I’ve heard it’s quite a good show,” Cook said with his trademark drawl. “I understand it’s on hiatus for a while so I thought it’d be a good time to catch up.
“Is there something outlandish about that?”
Some were surprised by the revelation.
“Cook?” said the New York Times’ David Pogue. “Wow.
“He’s the last person I’d suspect of being BSG-curious. I mean, not that there’s anything wrong with it. It’s a very good show. It’s just… he doesn’t seem like a scifi geek. Now, Ive? Rosenberg? Serlet? Sure.
On the whole, however, the news was not met with nearly the uproar as when CFO Peter Oppenheimer announced that he was Galactose-intolerant.
