It felt a bit anti-climatic after a blistering day of Apple news courtesy of Chief Executive Tim Cook, including a lengthy interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, and lots of teasers from NBC in recent days. But tonight, finally, Cook's interview with NBC's Brian Williams aired. The big news had already spilled out: Apple plans to begin manufacturing some Macs in the U.S. next year. But if you missed the segment, the transcript is still worth a read. And we'll update with the full video after NBC posts it. In the meantime, here's the transcript from the Thursday night segment of NBC's "Rock Center with Brian Williams": TRACK 1 Nobody remembers the guy who came after Thomas Edison.

Where there's a "Rock," there's likely to be a hard place nearby. NBC has moved its struggling news program "Rock Center with Brian Williams" to make way for new midseason drama "Do No Harm" -- and has given "30 Rock" an end date too. "Do No Harm," about a neurosurgeon with a dangerous alter ego (think Jekyll and Hyde), will take up the 10 p.m. Thursday slot -- a tough time period for the network--beginning Jan. 31. Its premiere will follow the hourlong series finale of "30 Rock.

I am starting to feel sorry for Mitt Romney. On an international tour of three countries, he made news in two of them by dissing the London Olympics and infuriating the Palestinians. The poor guy - for months, people have complained that he never says what he really believes. Now he's in trouble for too boldly saying what he actually thinks. First, during an interview with NBC News anchorman Brian Williams, Romney had this to say about prospects of success for the London Games: “It's hard to know just how well it will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting: the stories about the private security firm not having enough people, supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials -- that obviously is not something which is encouraging.” Well, the queen's government was disconcerted enough about the failure of the security contractor to provide enough guards that an extra 1,200 British troops were called in to help.

LONDON -- Mitt Romney's visit to London this week for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Gameswas meant as a reminder of one of his signature achievements: turning around the 2002 Salt Lake City Games after they were mired in scandal. But during his first televised interview abroad, Romney fielded a string of questions from "NBC Nightly News" host Brian Williams on topics that his campaign would rather skip at the start of a foreign tour intended to show the candidate's agility on the international stage.

Brian Williams will be moonlighting Mondays this fall, but at least he won't have a long commute to his second job. Just a few steps, in fact. On Monday, NBC will premiere the live newsmagazine "Rock Center With Brian Williams," with the anchor of the No. 1-rated "NBC Nightly News" serving as host. Viewers might find the setting familiar: Both programs will originate from different corners of the same space, Studio 3B in the network's Rockefeller Center headquarters in New York. Long-struggling NBC is angling to make "Rock Center" the first successful launch of a prime-time broadcast newsmagazine in 20 years.

NBC News has given a muscular-sounding name to its new prime-time newsmagazine: "Rock Center With Brian Williams. " Williams, anchor of "NBC Nightly News," will host the hour-long, as-yet-unscheduled program, with reports from Harry Smith, Kate Snow and other network correspondents. The name, though, may take some getting used to, which Williams wryly noted in the news release Monday: "Hopefully our journalism will speak louder than any name. If it doesn't, perhaps people will tune in to 'Rock Center' hoping to see Tina Fey. " —Scott Collins Bob Seger albums go digital Just put those old records back on the shelf: Bob Seger is headed to iTunes.

Heading into a game against No. 1 Kansas on Sunday, Tennessee knows it will need every ounce of talent from every player it has left.

Officers reportedly smelled marijuana and saw an open container of alcohol in the car. Senior forward...
