Those 20,000 devices that were designed in Cupertino by are no longer in commission as the schools in Baldwin County have switched to Google’s Chrome OS.

Who’s bothered by this? None other than Timothy D. Cook, who attended Robertsdale High School and graduated in 1978 before becoming Apple’s CEO in 2011. That’s right. Apple’s leader is witnessing his own high school leave his company’s products for a rival’s.
