苹果CEO Tim Cook公司内部新年邮件
圣诞之际，苹果 CEO Tim Cook 给内部员工们写了一封新年信，除了点数苹果 2013 一年来的成绩外（主要是上一场发布会），及向员工拜年之外，展望 2014 也是必不可少的一部分，当然这也是我们关心的一部分。
对 2014 年，我们充满了期待，新的一年我们将会有一些大计划要实现，而且我们认为消费者们也一定会拥抱这些计划。
关于这个大计划，想必可能跟传言中苹果正在开发的“iWatch”和苹果智能电视大有关系。Cook 曾在公开场合多次提到“将进入之前从未涉足过的领域”，不过在发布 Q 4 财报时，他就给出了具体时间——明年将推出重大产品类别更新。
This holiday season, tens of millions of people around the world, from all
walks of life, are experiencing Apple products for the first Time. Those moments of surprise and delight are magical, and they’re all made possible by your hard work. As many of us prepare to celebrate the holidays with our loved ones, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on what we’ve achieved together over the past year.
First and foremost, we introduced industry-leading products in each of
our major categories in 2013, showing the breadth and depth of innovation at Apple. We extended our lead in the smartphone market with iPhone 5s; launched iOS 7, an extraordinarily ambitious project; released OS X Mavericks for free to our customers;introduced the iPad Air and the iPad mini with Retina display; and this week began shipping the Mac Pro from a manufacturing facility in Austin,Texas. We also marked our 50 billionth download on the App Store – a milestone no one could have predicted we would reach so quickly.
Together we’ve shown the world that innovation at Apple goes beyond our products to the way we do business and how we give back to our community.This year, Apple raised and donated tens of millions of dollars for important charities and relief efforts like Red Cross aid to typhoon vicTims in the Philippines, and we continue to be the largest contributor to （PRODUCT）RED, supporting the Global Fund in its fight against the spread of AIDS in Africa. Just a few weeks ago, Jony Ive led an unprecedented effort that brought money and awareness to eliminating the transmission of AIDS from mother to child.
And finally, Apple is standing up for what we believe is right. We know that equality and diversity make our company and our society stronger, so we’ve urged the U.S. Congress to support workplace protections against discrimination based on sexual
orientation and gender identity. We are also laser focused on our contribution to several environmental initiatives and we will increase our efforts even more in this area in the future。
We have a lot to look forward to in 2014, including some big plans that we
think customers are going to love. I am extremely proud to stand alongside you as we put innovation to work serving humankind’s deepest values and highest aspirations. I consider myself the luckiest person in the world for the opportunity to work at this amazing company with all of you.
