Trolling for a headline
Sounds like Mr Cook is doing a Michael "Ryanair" O'Leary by making a statement he knew would draw headlines and so the buildup can begin to the iTelly or whatever it's going to be called.
I have a Samsung Note 2014 tab and a Smart TV, and I can tell him for a fact it's nothing like the 1970's, and I was there too. Mirroring my live Premier League footy from my tab to my telly on a Saturday is frankly a work of genius and seems like something else Apple have missed the boat on.
Keep up, boys.
