Tim Cook not planning monstrous iPad-Mac hybrid

Tim Cook spoke to the Irish Independent, and specifically addressed the idea of convergence:

“We feel strongly that customers are not really looking for a converged Mac and iPad,” said Cook. “Because what that would wind up doing, or what we’re worried would happen, is that neither experience would be as good as the customer wants. So we want to make the best tablet in the world and the best Mac in the world. And putting those two together would not achieve either. You’d begin to compromise in different ways.”

On his remote island, a disappointed Dr. Moreau puts down his iPad and Mac and goes back to work on something less horrifying.
