Apple CEO Tim Cook Says He Does 80% of His Work on an iPad and So Should Everyone Else

Apple CEO Tim Cook tells the WSJ that he does 80% of the work running the world's most valuable company on the iPad.

"There's no reason why everyone shouldn't be like that," Mr. Cook said in an interview discussing the company's new partnership with IBM to develop applications for business and enterprise. "Imagine enterprise apps being as simple as the consumer apps that we've all gotten used to. That's the way it should be."

The companies are planning to create over 100 apps for various industries. The first apps should be available alongside the release of iOS 8.

Cook tells the WSJ that laptops still outnumber tablets by three-to-one in business environments; however, that may change if IBM and Apple can create apps that let workers do their jobs in "fundamentally different and fundamentally better" ways.

"You can envision the day when everyone in every enterprise has one," said Cook.

First off what failure happened if ipad and iPhone are recommended, even the macs, just look at how many are used. Let's hope it stays that way, IBM did this because they're expanding where people hear about the products or whoever is too poor for anything.

Apple went looking for IBM, everyone knows apple it's always buying minds and souls since thief jobs die, nobody knos what the hell they are doing, so they need a big brother to tell them what to do.
