Apple Denies Netbook Rumor: “Not a consumer experience that we would put the Mac brand on”


  Apple continues to deny that they are releasing a netbook as has been rumored for some time.  Apple executive Tim Cook had this to say about netbooks:


  "When I’m looking at what’s sold in the Netbook market, I see cramped keyboards, junky hardware, very small screens, bad software. Not a consumer experience that we would put the Mac brand on. As it exists today, we’re not interested in it nor would it be something customers would be interested in the long term. We are looking at the space. For those who want a small computer that does browsing/email, they might want an iPhone or iPod Touch. If we find a way to deliver an innovative product that really makes a contribution, we’ll do that."
