Tim Cook - AirPods are coming within the "next few weeks"

Tim Cook - AirPods are coming within the
Apple's AirPods. These little wireless headphones sure did receive a great deal of criticism from many outlets when they were first showcased at Apple's iPhone 7 event in September of this year, and since that announcement, we've been patiently waiting day after day for some sort of official confirmation from Apple as to when these little buggers will actually be available for purchase. Earlier this month, an authorized Apple retailer confirmed that the wireless headphones would go on sale at some point in December, and yet another report has surfaced to reiterate this fact. However, this latest one is a bit more interesting in the fact that it comes straight from CEO Tim Cook himself.

According to MacRumors, a disgruntled iPhone 7 owner emailed Apple's CEO Tim Cook with the following message - 

To this email, Tim Cook responded with, "Thanks for your note. Sorry for the delay---we are finalizing them and I anticipate we will begin to ship over the next few weeks." It is true that emails like this can easily be faked, but MacRumors has confirmed that the full headers for the email did in fact originate from Apple's own corporate servers. Couple this with the fact that it isn't uncommon for Apple's executive staff to respond to customer emails, and we could be looking at official confirmation from the CEO himself that AirPods will be here sooner rather than later.

AirPods were originally slated to come out back in October, and while earlier rumors suggested that they wouldn't be ready until January of 2017, all signs are pointing to an eventual release before this year is over.

Air pods make me think of Ben Stiller in There's something about Mary. The hair gel scene.

Pickpockets have been around as long as pants. Pickears could be the next thing.

Some samsung headphones doesn't look nothing like clasical "chordless" headphones, or last 5 hours on a single charge, or pair seamlessly with your phone, or have ridicoulous bluetooth range or have a nice case with quickcharge included. Also they aren't just 170$ are they ?

As dumb as they look and as poorly as they'll sound, they'll still sell like crazy because of that Apple logo.

The reason they're delayed is because every other Bluetooth headphones have a clip to secure them to your head. The air pods don't and they've been tweaking the design/materials/finish to keep them from falling out. Perhaps they're also easily stolen from you while you wear them.
