Apple launched the iPad Pro today and CEO Tim Cook took the time to offer a dig at the Pro's biggest rival, Microsoft. Speaking Philosophical Society at Trinity College in Ireland, Cook gave a timely assessment of Microsoft's Surface Book, a laptop/tablet that Redmond launched last month. We liked the Surface Book, but Cook is unimpressed and said:"(the Surface Book) a product that tries too hard to do too much. It's trying to be a tablet and a notebook and it really succeeds at being neither. It's sort of deluded." We don't think being a laptop and a tablet is that hard of a bridge to gap, so we think Cook is nitpicking here, or more to the point he really sees the Surface Book as a threat, otherwise he simply wouldn't mention it.
