Chinese Reporter Mocks Apple CEO Cook Over Watch Battery Life

Chinese Reporter Mocks Apple CEO Cook Over Watch Battery Life

A China Central Television (CCTV) reporter seized an opportunity during the network’s first exclusive interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook to mock the battery life of its trademark watch. Cook, boasting that he only sleeps four hours a night due to his hard work ethic, was met with the suggestion that according to that logic he would need two Apple Watches, being that they only have an 18 hour battery life. A stumped Cook said that his watch’s battery was ample to his needs. Many Chinese Netizens were riled by the reporter’s conduct.

    Better than when Rui Chenggan got to “represent all of Asia” and made an ass in front of himself to Obama.

    Something about when CCTV reporters get away from people who would ruin their lives for asking direct questions they behave as poorly as Fox reporters. I’m even wondering if they’re actually told to be like that. Now that I think about it, that might be true for Fox too.

    • Dolph Grunt

      Yang Rui was always my favourite. What ever happened to that guy?

          • Dolph Grunt

            Don’t listen to him!

            He doesn’t understand your brilliance.

          • David

            True. I, on the other hand, just don’t understand her English. How does picking lottery numbers make you smart? It just makes you lucky.

          • Dolph Grunt

            Oh ye of little faith. She is wise beyond her days. It’s completely fail-safe.

            What could possibly go wrong?

          • Super Bunny!

            when you play with real money, it’s totally different.
            you think when you make decision is not a challenge to your brain and charactor?
            this is my fight record this morning. got 500 at last.
            i did not put enough money in my account, in round 33, if i prepare well, follow my double plan to buy, should be 360 gets 2280. then i can get 1500 in one round.
            but i decide to not put money any more.
            i plan from last night to this morning, i only have 70 in my account, but now it’s 1090. it’s not just about luck, ok?

          • Foreign Devil

            Why tell us?? We don’t play Chinese lottery. . go brag on Weixin or something.

          • David

            Sorry, I guess I do not understand how Chinese Lottery works. Having good character helps you win? However, I suspect if you only have 70 in your account, you are not winning that much. Good luck

          • Zappa Frank

            don’t dare to contredire eattot…

          • Bman

            I’m sorry to hear that. So listen well to some good advice.
            Don’t gamble, it’s stupid.
            Don’t say mean things about people or they will be mean to you.
            Don’t talk about money with strangers; we don’t care and will probably assume you’re an asswhole.
            Don’t forget to wear sunscreen.
            You’re welcome! Muah!

    • Bman

      Invest in a new personality, please.

  • donscarletti

    I don’t think there is any evidence of Rui Chenggan being a racist. I just think he’s more like a Fox News jingoist douchebag, claiming to love his country but really just making it look stupid.

    The Starbucks thing is a prime example. He claims to have switched all of the tourists into drinking Chinese tea, but currently in the forbidden city there is no food or refreshments beyond packaged crackers, generic ice cream and Coca-Cola. Tell me how this more authentically reflects Zhu Di’s vision when he built the palace than Starbucks. You have this gigantic palace with kitchens the size of a school gymnasium but if you want something to eat, you have to walk all the way across the square to Qianmen Street, where the closest food and drinks retailer is, you guessed it, Starbucks! It’s just completely hollow. Starbucks is still doing fantastic business under Zhengyangmen, there is still no authentically Chinese food and drink experience inside the forbidden city and its just the tourists lose out.

    Yang Rui is just the opposite. While Rui Chenggan asks questions deliberately phrased to be obtuse and unanswerable, Yang Rui however tends to ask questions that can be answered with a single “yes”. He’s not at all a confrontational interviewer since confrontation will only make the interviewee interrupt him from talking, which he likes doing, a lot. Even the comment he made that you’re referring to was made to an audience that wanted to hear it and was made under the ridiculous assumption that it wouldn’t travel past his immediate audience. As soon as anyone took offense he was quick to qualify it.

    • Dolph Grunt

      Yang Rui qualifying it was hilarious, to my recollection. Didn’t he say that he meant to call the reporter a shrew instead of a bitch and he threatened to sue someone, as I recall.

  • WghUk

    Why riled? He’s just a rich businessman. A few mocks won’t cost him a dollar.

  • Foreign Devil

    I applaud her one liner. Also someone should call out his BS on only needing 4 hours of sleep every night. . I’m sure SOME nights he only slept 4 hours. . but every night? Not unless he is on speed.

    • Edward Kay

      I did that for the past 20 odd years and still do. No speed, only arthritis, IBS and the cute panda look.

    央视有这种提问精神,应该多都去问问不作为、乱作为的官员。

    CCTV is very spirited when asking questions, why don’t they go ask such questions to lazy and negligent officials?

    采访哪怕是县级干部时,你还敢这样较真吗?

    If you were even interviewing a county level official, would you dare to be so earnest?

    Look at the expression in this female prostitute’s (pun on journalist) eyes, so slutty, don’t know which leader’s horse she is (which leader fucks her).

    Score one for CCTV. :)
