Microsoft fan boys are having a good laugh at Apple’s expense — the Mac Pro production line in Austin, TX is powered by Windows. But, that’s OK because AppleCares and we know this because Tim Tweets is now a thing.
Steve Jobs was famous for responding to customer emails*. Tim Cook, not so much. Nevertheless, the “new” Apple CEO’s is far from quiet on Twitter, where tweets under the name @tim_cook and seems to tweet most weeks if not more often.

AppleCares, big time.
