Hisense, a company known for making budget Chinese tablets, will soon be releasing their Android tablets stateside. Apple CEO Tim Cook is an interesting person. He marched his way to the top of Apple’s corporate ladder through hard work and an uncommon intelligence that Steve Jobs, one of the most highly respected chief executives in history, respected. A new Aston Martin is something worth shouting about, but it’ll take a number of loud (and rich) voices if the one-off CC100 Speedster Concept is to spawn a production version.
