Steve Jobs resigns as Apple CEO: Tim Cook takes helm
Opinion: Tim Cook’s first big mistake
Bidding started at around 11 am this Wednesday with a certain Lee111 bidding $5,000 was quickly topped three hours later by a $6,000 bid from ddorato. Since then bids have been piling up and as of early Friday morning a certain Alavosa was winning with his $500,000 bid for the coffee break which CharityBuzz originally estimated to be valued at $50,000.
Bragging rights to having coffee with Cook does come with some heavy stipulations, for instance you pretty much can’t brag about.
“The winner cannot blog, social network, talk to press write about, take pictures or record during the experience in any way,” according to CharityBuzz’s legal terms.
Winners also have to savour every minute because the “experience” lasts “30 minutes to an hour.”
Lately, Cook’s approval rating among Apple employees has gone down. Online jobs and career Web site Glassdoor, reported that from March 2012 to March 2013, Cook’s approval rating from 640 Apple workers was 93 per cent, putting him at No. 18 behind the likes of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (No. 1), EMC’s Joe Tucci (No. 7) and Google’s Larry Page (No.11).
Last year, Cook held first place in the Glassdoor rankings with an approval rating of 97 per cent. The year before that, Jobs held the number one spot with an approval rating of 95 per cent.
