ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Apple CEO Tim Cook opened the company's developers conference with a moment of silence for the victims of the mass shooting at an Orlando gay club. "We offer our deepest sympathies to everyone whose lives were touched by this violence, a senseless unconscionable act of terrorism and hate and join us in a moment of silence to honor the victims and the people who love them," Cook said on Monday (June 13) Early on Sunday (June 12), officials said Omar Mateen stormed the packed Pulse nightclub in Orlando, with a handgun and AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, fatally shooting 49 people before police killed him. The moment of silence came as Apple announced it is opening its popular Siri digital assistant to outside developers, which means iPhone users could soon be able to hail rides with Uber, publish photos on Shutterfly or make a call on Skip with voice commands. The move, announced at its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday, is Apple's latest attempt to spruce up the phone experience as sales of the best-selling product flag.
