A Big Moment for Apple’s CEO Apple CEO Tim Cook has commanded a huge amount of attention over the issue in what is turning out to be a defining moment in his career.

Name: Donna Cleveland Title: Editor in Chief Years at iPhone Life: 3.5 Apple Products Owned: Apple Watch Sport, iPhone 6s, Macbook Air, Apple TV Office Quirk: Whether at my desk or during meetings, you’ll often find me doing some sort of stretching exercise. Work can get tense, people! My office-mates are used to it by now—no eyebrows lift when I address them with one arm wrapped around my head. STM atlas iPhone 6s Case ($39.95) This case from STM kept my phone safe during a recent excursion to India, which, between the wild rickshaw rides and rugged terrain, was no small feat.

Marge, Ad Sales Coordinator: I unplug by enjoying a good book (you know, the old-fashioned kind with pages that you manually turn). I enjoy the feel of the paper between my fingers and the “old book” smell, which you never get from technology. Sarah Kingsbury, Senior Web Editor: I try to make it hard to mindlessly waste time on my iPhone by docking it when I’m at home. I can still use my iPhone if I need to, but leaving it in one place makes me more likely to engage with my family instead of my device. Donna Cleveland, Editor in Chief: I love my job, but the fact remains that I spend my days staring at the screen of my Mac, iPhone, or Apple Watch. When I leave work, going to…
