Apple CEO orders students to throw away their Androids
When the whole world looks up to you as the CEO of the most valuable company since the stock market began, you’d better watch what you are saying.
Apple CEO Tim Cook didn’t bother to see if what he said at the opening speech of George Washington University’s convocation on Sunday was barely annoying to anyone (in fact he wished it did), but trimmed down his comment into a joke, in a way where nothing will be held against him.
Before I begin today, they asked me to make a standard announcement. You’ve heard this before. About silencing your phones. Those of you with an iPhone, just place it in silent mode. If you don’t have an iPhone, please pass it to the center aisle. Apple has a world‑class recycling program.
The last sentence threw the audience in laughter. Proceeding with his talk, Cook told the graduating students about his humble beginnings and how they need to fly their school’s banner high.
“Congratulations Class of 2015. I’d like to take one photo of you, because this is the best view in the world,” the CEO said as he whipped out his Apple iPhone 6 to take a shot of the thrilled audience.
