Tim Cook sends congratulatory email to Apple employees, promises ‘exciting new things’

After a Q1 earnings call today that blew apart all of the numbers we expected to see, Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, sent an email to his employees heralding this quarter as the strongest in Apple’s history, according to 9to5Mac.

Here’s the email to the Apple staff:


Thanks to everyone’s hard work, we’re off to a great start in 2012. Last week in New York we launched a groundbreaking initiative for education with iBooks textbooks, and today we reported the strongest quarter in Apple’s history. Please join me tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. in Town Hall. We’ll review our record-setting results and discuss some exciting new things going on at Apple. The meeting will be broadcast live to many sites in Cupertino and other Apple locations. Please check Apple Web for details.


Cook promises to announce some “exciting new things” going on at the company during its Town Hall staff meeting tomorrow. While it’s unlikely that any of these “new things” will be leaked to the public, it’s interesting to wonder what those things might be.

For all we know, Apple could be putting coffee machines into every cubicle. Of course, they’d be referred to as “iCoffee” machines. If we do hear anything, rest assured that you’ll be the first to know.
