Apple stockholders hold annual meeting
CEO Tim Cook made some interesting comments. Comparing the first OG Apple iPad to the Apple iPad Air, he called the former tablet "embarrassing." And after bragging about the all-time tech record of $171 billion in revenue that Apple brought in last year, Cook told the stockholders in attendance, "We want to grow more. And this morning, we want to unveil some new products ..." But Cook admitted he was just kidding, taking the air out of the room.
Many in the room didn't appreciate the joke, which reminded many of the the stockholders attending, that Apple hasn't had an innovative new product since 2010.

Why is Tim Cook calling their former iPad tablet design "embarrassing"?
Any one could make a guess?

It was heavy, battery life wasn't great, and it had a horrible screen, same as the first iPhone. It's not about what you used to do, it's about what you are doing.

Sure, if you're looking at it by today's standards. None of those things were necessarily true when it came out though.

The video was rude. Climate change is much more important than them stockholders making money.

Brutal quote, sounds like they aren't too fond of Tim and miss Steve. Too bad for Tim most shareholders don't know jack about running corporations.

Not sure how the Mac Pro is not innovative and new. It squeezes an unimaginable amount of power into a tiny frame, much smaller than the average desktop PC tower. I can't think of any cylindrical desktop computers or workstations that existed before it was released. PCs are still box shaped, as they have been since the '80s. That's 30 years of convention overturned.
