Apple CEO Tim Cook Mocked For Taking Blurry Super Bowl Photo With iPhone
Tim Cook clearly has a lot of strengths that have thrust him into one of the world’s most iconic and immediately recognizable names in the world of big business. The American businessman, who was born in Alabama, has been with Apple in one capacity or another for the last 18 years, and in that time has risen from Senior Vice President of Worldwide Operations all the way through the ranks, to replace the legendary Steve Jobs as the company’s Chief Executive Officer. The man clearly has a highly respected business acumen and leadership capability, but we all have our flaws, and it appears that Cook’s is capturing an in-focus photograph.
We’re pretty sure that he simply doesn’t have time to take a load of stick from the social media world about a terribly out-of-focus photo posted to Twitter of events at this year’s Super Bowl, but that’s exactly what’s been happening. The photo appears to depict the close-up aftermath of Super Bowl 50 which saw the Broncos take the Vince Lombardi Trophy back home to Denver, Colorado. There are pitch invasions, confetti, and people going wild with the celebration. At least we think there is, as the photo is so distorted that it’s terribly difficult to see the intricacies of the moment. And boy, the Twitterverse is showing no signs of mercy when it comes to telling Cook that his iPhone photography skills are less than exceptional.
Twitter users joined in the slaying of his photo by advising Cook to upgrade to an iPhone 7 Plus in order to benefit from Optical Image Stabilization (which by the way iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus already has). Some of them also tagged their tweets to #ShotOniPhone which Apple uses to advertise photography capabilities of the iPhone. Lesson learned; an extremely capable CEO does not make an entirely capable mobile photographer.
We’re pretty sure that Tim Cook has a fair bit on his plate at any given moment. There’s the fact that he currently sits as the CEO of what is the world’s most valuable company. There’s the upcoming March media event that will see his organization introduce the iPhone 5se, iPad Air 3, and some new accessories for Apple Watch. There’s even the fact that he’s just an extremely busy and contentious individual who’s always doing his thing for charity and appearing on panels to discuss the industry. The bottom line is, he’s a super busy individual with a lot on his plate.
