Apple CEO Tim Cook to sit with First Lady Michelle Obama during Tuesday's State of the Union address

Source: Contra Costa Times

Once again, Silicon Valley royalty will join First Lady Michelle Obama to watch her husband deliver his State of the Union address Tuesday.

Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook will sit in the First Lady's box, a White House official said. He will be joined by military families, those championing immigration reform and those whose lives have been touched by gun violence.

The First Lady also invited Bobak Ferdowsi, known as the NASA's "Mohawk Guy," a member of the Mars Curiosity rover team at NASA and Caltech's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Last year, Michelle Obama's guests included Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, and Mike Krieger, co-founder of photography app Instagram.

7. Most Powerful Gay CEO in History.

Foxconn makes things for Samsung, Google, Motorola (Google too), HP, Dell, Microsoft, Amazon, ASUS, Acer, Cisco, Sony, Toshiba, Vizio, Nintendo...

Pretty much all electronics makers, including whatever you posted your response on.

18. No not really.

I do just fine. A computer is a tool. I use it to check my email, watch funny videos of cats and submit expense reports. Luckily I have much more going on in my life that I don't base my identity on a piece of technology.
