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.

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.
