"In the earnings call today, Apple CEO Tim Cook was asked about the Microsoft Surface tablet. This is what he had to say:Apple CEO Tim Cook compares Microsoft Surface to a 'car that flies and floats' but doesn't do either well - The Next Web
“I haven’t had a chance to try a Surface, but from what we’re reading, it’s a fairly compromised and confusing product. [...] One of the toughest things you do when you make a product is to make hard tradeoffs. To decide what a product should be.
