Tim Cook uses his iPad for 80% of his work

0. phoneArena 17 Jul 2014, 21:50 posted on

Apple has often said that the iPad can be a replacement for quite a lot of the things you might need to do on a daily basis. Some people still need a more full featured computer for advanced tasks, like hardcore gaming or video production, but most things can be handled on a tablet. And, Tim Cook appears to be proving that true by doing 80% of his work on an iPad...

Valuable in terms of market cap, and Apple is by far #1 on that. Apple's market cap is $561.3B. Number 2 is Exxon at $440B, and Google is number 3 at $257.4B.

Even if it's true , for the rest 20% he heeds MAC(PC). So what is his point??? Dumb just like the Unique Breed he leads.

By the way with hybrid PC could be done 100% of the job. Right?

He's Tim Cook, so he's probably an Apple fanboy, and Apple doen't make i-hybrids.

no wonder... ofcourse being a ceo of a successful company, he will for sure use its product and it is quite obvious... but using it as a marketing gimmick is bad

Could a Surface Pro 3 do 100% of his work? That's probably the productivity tablet to beat.

Quality expensive very good apps, will be needed for enterprises, not average priced ones.

Starting from $20

Playstore really needs good quality apps.

This POS that is in charge of Playstore, needs to be buttkick ed out, right know.

I don't think I could do productivity on a tablet. Don't get me wrong it's possible. But for me nothing beats a computer.

That being said I think most of what Cook does for business is probably handling emails which is really easy on an iPad.

After building a PC for roughly the cost of my 32 GB iPad Air, I can say that I wholeheartedly agree - nothing beats productivity on a good PC. The fact that it can also play almost every game I throw at it at 1080p 60fps is just a nice cherry on top. Still, unless there's some way to do multiple displays with an iPad, it won't really come close to PC utility.

"Tim Cook uses his iPad for 80% of his work"

I think it is not true. In my opinion he says so just because he is CEO of Apple Inc. It would be more reliable if it was Microsoft Surface Pro 3 not an iPad.

i Disagree, i think he does in fact do 80% of his work on an i Pad; what most people are failing to factor is that 80% of his workday is about 0.31% of that of the average corporate U.S. worker. So, iN actuality, he doesn't do much - he probably spends more time charging his i Pad at Starbucks than actual work!
