Jensen exclaims passionate support for Apple products


Yesterday
, Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO and President of Nvidia visited the luxurious state of Dubai on business matters to present a speech at the American University in Dubai (AUD). During his visit, he sat down with a few analysts from the media to discuss the current state of the IT industry as well as Nvidia’s products, goals and achievements.

During his talk, Jensen positioned himself in a surprising new light when he mentioned his incredibly passionate support for Apple products to the group of individuals in the room. “I’m all Apple,” he stated. “Apple uses the best technology for its [computers]…and says to its customers: if you buy a computer from us, you can be sure we have selected the best technology inside for you. That is their promise to consumers. Their promise to consumers isn’t [that] we’ve selected the best technology for you with the exception of what Intel allows us to use. That’s not their promise, and that’s why Apple uses the best technology where they want, whenever they want. And that’s why I’m all Apple! At home, it’s just Macs everywhere [with] NVIDIA’s technology in all of them but I [do] use Macs. My son has two Macs, my daughter has a Mac, there’s an extra Mac just in case, and my wife has a Mac. It’s just Mac, Mac, Mac! Because I know it’s got the best stuff inside.” [ShuffleGazine.com]

On another note, some of the photos taken during the conference reveal what appears to be a very sleek looking, capacitive multi-touch tablet device. Positioned right in front of Jensen during the meeting, the device appears to be running a Pixar-animated full screen video at high resolution. Upon closer inspection, we were able to clarify the picture enough to reveal that the movie being played is Disney’s Ratatouille (2007). In this scene we see Alfredo Linguini, the protagonist, searching through the walk-in storage room at Gusteau’s restaurant, where he discovers a pack of rats hiding behind boxes and digging through the abundance of food.

At this point, we will reserve any thoughts of speculation regarding this tablet device for a later date. Nevertheless, it is interesting to point out the presence of only a single button on the entire device, illuminated with a red glow. With the impression of Jensen’s fervent attitude toward Apple products taken into consideration, the significance of this sighting will make for one interesting debate.
