Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff Has A Meltdown At iPad Launch

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Salesforce (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff was at the new iPad launch. As he sat in the crowd he invite people to tweet him with questions.

I guess when Apple CEO Tim Cook, took the stage and failed to thank the Great Steve Jobs, Benioff had a melt down:

Tim Cook didn’t thank or remember Steve Jobs at iPad3 launch.There would be no iPad3 without Steve Jobs. Steve you were the best we had!

Then he started taking shots at the Great company and its products:

Lame name of ipad3″The New iPad”.Where is the zen?Ipad3?Ipads?Ipad retina? Ipadx?

Then it started going downhill:

The only racial and gender diversity in Apple’s keynotes is in the movies they show at the launches.#ipad3

I guess he was missing the Great Steve Jobs. We all do. He was the greatest.

This #ipad3 launch is horribly boring.Steve, I miss you terribly.

Then Benioff continued with his tweets:

Apple: we have lots of white men building white #ipad3s. No women on stage at launch. Only racial diversity is in videos and photos shown.
