WTF?! Was Tim Cook wearing a Blackberry at today’s event? - Macenstein

WTF?! Was Tim Cook wearing a Blackberry at today’s event?

Hmm… at an event some say was designed to show that Apple is composed of more company men than just Steve Jobs, it appears Tim Cook did not get the “There’s no Blackberry in Team” in memo. Joel Esler over at Random Thoughts from Joel’s World noticed that Tim appeared to have a Blackberry attached to his hip throughout today’s event.

Now, it’s one thing to prefer a Blackberry over an iPhone, but it’s another thing entirely be one of the top 5 guys at Apple and to wear a competing product on stage at a high-publicity product launch. I mean, who did he think was going to call him? He couldn’t have left that backstage for 40 minutes? Put it in his pocket? Or was he just expecting some sort of message via Push Notification?

    Not sure, but that almost looks like my brothers insulin pump…

  2. My God, Uncle Miltie! What’s Tim Cook doing with your brother’s Insulin pump?!? I’d rather he had a Blackberry!

    I just assumed it was his mic transmitter that was put on in a hurry or something (typically it would be in the back where you won’t notice it). I can’t find a photo of one that looks identical to that though, so maybe it is a Blackberry.

    I was laughing when he stated that when he saw windows on the mac that it was sending shivers down his spine, sadly we all had that reaction seeing the crackberry todya. Maybe thats the reason everybody seemed a little quiet during this event…hmmm!

    PUSH…pffff going on 5 months At&t has Apple by the B…S

  5. Jay says:

    Looks like the wireless lavalier product shure makes

    or just a crackberry. funny that he said shivers ran down his spine when seeing Windows sofware on the Mac….we had the same effect. Pffff Push please goingt on 5 months.

    Its his Mic Transmitter. How dumb would that be!

    hey…. there’s my garage door opener! bastard.

  8. dizzy says:

    Yeah, it makes sense that it’s for the wireless mic. I guess if Timmy shows up on a missing persons report tomorrow we’ll know it wasn’t a mic pack 🙂

    It’s his wireless mic transmitter.

    If you had bothered to look at it for more than a brief moment, you’d realize this.

    I can’t imagine that he’d wear a Blackberry on an event like this.

    His accent was funny, though.
    He had a hard time suppressing it if you ask me.

  11. Matt says:

    Forget the BB. Isn’t anyone else worried about how thin he is?!

  12. Michael says:

    I thought the same thing and had to go back a second time … like the rest I will simply assume it is simply his mic transmitter, but then again ….

  13. Bob says:

    Not saying it is, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they all used blackberries. As a business man, you need to get business done, and the iphone doesn’t work with Leopard Mail Server, which is of course what they use at apple, right? Or are they using Exchange?

  14. Jonro says:

    That’s the remote for Jobs’ Reality Distortion Field.

  15. Alex says:

    Looks like the clicker for the slides, which were made in Keynote, no less.

  16. John Madden says:

    Can’t we start a rumour that it’s the iPhone version 3?

  17. Rudy says:

    He looks that he has the wireless clicker in his hand an a Shure Wireless lavalier unit.

    When people get on stage for any event with a wireless microphone, any mobile unit (Blackberry, iPhone, Treo or other has to be turn off since you can actually hear the data transfer in the units.

    yup it’s a shure U4D wireless transmitter, duh! un professionally placed
