The resignation of Apple chief executive Steve Jobs may cause tectonic change within the company, but it won’t affect the technology giant’s activity in Washington, Politico reports.
 
Apple cuts a low profile in the nation’s capital. New CEO Tim Cook will address national policy matters of concern to the company, including patent reform and taxes, technology insiders tell the news service, but he isn’t expected to focus on those issues for a while.
 
“My interaction with him leads me to believe that this is an area where he has a certain level of comfort and may be personally inclined to spend some time here,” said Dean Garfield, chief executive of the Washington-based Information Technology Industry Council, of which Apple is a member.
