Yes, that’s Tim Cook narrating. As Rene Ritchie notes:

My best guess as to why Tim Cook narrated the “Better” video is because it speaks to Apple’s core values, and speaking to Apple’s core values is both deeply important to Tim Cook, and how he’s been positioned atop and within Apple.

You can say Tim Cook is not a product guy, but there’s no question that he knows better than anyone how Apple does what it does. And because he cares about it, he’s made that process… better.

This feels like the point where Tim Cook finally drew the line in the sand and showed what Apple looks like under his image. He’s been moving in this direction for a while, but unlike prior efforts, this doesn’t feel like Steve Jobs’ Apple under new ownership. This has Cook’s fingerprints all over it. More power to him.

Think your iPad is awesome? Screw that—try having two iPads, connected to one another with magnets, that work together. Apple just applied for patents on the technology. Mind blown yet?

Apple wants to shake this massive bill, but can’t

What costs Apple $1,100 per hour but the company can’t do anything about? Easy: The fee that the company’s getting charged by a court-compliance monitor after it lost an eBook lawsuit earlier this year. Michael Bromwich and his team have cost the company $138,432.40 over just two weeks, which is so insane that the company has said that they’ve never had an individual cost this high. Apple’s pushing back in court, though for his part, Bromwich says his fee (which allows him to make what’s a yearly salary for many people in the span of a 40-hour week) is reasonable.
