It’s so good that you just don’t need that musty old laptop. And here’s Apple CEO Tim Cook to make it real clear. Here’s a chart showing the past four quarters – and there’s the iPad alongside… other companies’ notebooks: Dell, HP, Lenovo.
“What you might not know is we’ve sold more iPads in the last year than the entire notebook lineup of all of the biggest notebook manufacturers,” he said. The Macs were also in the list – down there in the middle of the chart.
Half of the 90-minute launch was dedicated to the iPad Pro – with every effort made to point out that it is just as good, if not better, than a laptop.

  • Hundreds of Google employees will walk out of more than 20 offices around the world to protest the company’s handling of sexual misconduct in the wake of a bombshell New York Times report.
  • The protest is meant to send a message that the company needs more transparency around its handling of sexual harassment as well as more employee empowerment overall.
  • This is the latest in a string of employee activism events at Google.
