Apple CEO Tim Cook compares Microsoft Surface to a 'car that flies and floats' but doesn't do either well - The Next Web

First a toaster/fridge, now a flying/floating car; Tim Cook is, unsurprisingly, not a Surface fan...
"In the earnings call today, Apple CEO Tim Cook was asked about the Microsoft Surface tablet. This is what he had to say:
“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. I suppose you could design a car that flies and floats, but I don’t think it would do all of those things very well.
I think that when people look at the iPad vs. competitive offerings, they really want an iPad and will continue to do that.”"
