Tim Cook Basically Says Surface Is A Dumb Idea

Well, that’s not verbatim, but it might as wellbe. During Apple’s quarterly earnings call, Cook just dissed Microsoft’s new kinda-tablet-kinda-computer thing. “I suppose you could design a car that flies and floats,” Mr Cook quipped. That’s sarcasm. Mean, corporate sarcasm!

Cook also referred to the device as “compromised and confusing” when asked by an investor what he thought of the competition — which, generally speaking, isn’t wrong. Is this better than the last time he insulted hybrid PC devices by comparing them to a toaster-plus-fridge? Would you actually buy a car that flies and floats? Discuss.
