Apple CEO Tim Cook talks iPad mini and product cannibalization, slams Surface, and more

Following the release of Apple’s (AAPL) Q4 2012 financial earnings, CEO Tim Cook fielded questions that ranged from defending the iPad mini’s $329 price tag to gently slapping Microsoft’s (MSFT) Surface tablet. Since he officially took over the chief executive role, Cook has made a concerted effort to be more transparent about Apple’s business operations. A soft-spoken guy, Cook cut his teeth for Apple securing components and ensuring its supply chain was always on top of things. While he’s not quite as charismatic as the late Steve Jobs, he’s every bit as tough and aggressive. Calm and extremely calculated, Cook is capable of throwing a hard jab when the occasion arrises. Here are the six most interesting nuggets that Cook revealed on Thursday evening’s earnings call.

Steve Jobs’s biographer says ‘thermonuclear’ anger at Google was real

Walter Isaacson, the man behind the authorized Steve Jobs biography, said while speaking at the Royal Institution on Wednesday that he disagreed with Google CEO Larry Page, and Jobs’s hatred for Android was real, Macworld reported. In an earlier interview, Page indicated that the Android, Apple feud was just “for show” and merely a way to rally the troops. The CEO mentioned how he “had a relationship with Steve” and despite his declining health at the time, Apple’s co-founder reached out to him for a casual talk. Isaacson, however, outlined why Jobs felt such “thermonuclear” anger towards Google’s “stolen product.” More →

New Apple CEO goes where Steve Jobs would not

New Apple CEO goes where Steve Jobs would not

Steve Jobs took particular care to ensure the company he created continued to operate at the high levels he demanded after he left. Thanks to the processes he put in place, the procedures he pined over and the products he helped mastermind, Apple’s last quarter was the biggest ever among technology companies, and Apple is currently the most valuable company in the world. But current Apple CEO Tim Cook has brought change to the company he now runs, and how that will affect Apple in the long term remains to be seen. As Cook continues to separate himself from his predecessor in a number of ways, the executive visited China recently to put himself on the front lines of Foxconn’s new iPhone factory in Zhengzhou, China, which will employ 120,000 people according to Bloomberg. Foxconn’s facilities recently underwent an Apple-prompted series of inspections by the Fair Labor Association, which is expected to release a report on its findings soon. Another image of Cook at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory follows below. More →
