Tim Cook might come off as a nice guy with a generous heart, but he's sure not above throwing some serious shade at Apple's staunchest competitor. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, the CEO said he wasn't surprised that Google sold Motorola -- after all, the company usually "gets rid of something that's losing money, something that it's not committed to." To be fair, he also acknowledged that it's "really hard" developing software (which Google's doing good at), services and hardware at the same time. As he used that as a segue to say that Apple's ability to do all those things makes it special, though, it's hard to see that comment as sympathetic. Want to read what he said exactly?

WSJ: What did you think of Google selling Motorola to Lenovo?
Cook: I wasn't surprised. It seems like a logical transaction. Google gets rid of something that's losing money, something that they're not committed to. I think it's really hard to do hardware, software and services and to link all those things together. That's what makes Apple so special. It's really hard, so I'm not surprised that they are not going to do that.
