Startup spoofs Tim Cook's convergence comment with 'Froaster' video

The folks behind The Brydge iPad keyboard case would like to introduce Apple CEO Tim Cook to its new "Cook Ware" product.

Much has been made of Apple CEO Tim Cook recently dismissing the idea of Apple releasing a MacBook-iPad hybrid device, saying such convergence was a "compromise" to the end user.

"You can converge a toaster and a refrigerator," Cook said, "but those things are probably not going be pleasing to the user."

Well, the folks behind the Brydge keyboard case, a Kickstarter project that makes your iPad look and act more like a MacBook Air and has already raised more than $400,000 since it launched last week, have posted a chilling video that roasts (or is it toasts?) Tim Cook a bit with a new "Cook Ware" product.

Ah, the clever things people will do these days for a little publicity.
