    This is in such poor taste. Give this great man some dignity. You wonder why he is so private its because of [email protected]@ts like you and TMZ. Gods speed Steve, we love you and all you have done.



    Hint from Mod - if you think the image is in bad taste - don't post it again by quoting it

    Wed Aug 24, 2011 Apple announces Jobs - Cook transition



    Fri, Aug 26, 2011 close of market:



    AAPL Market Value of Listed Securityt$ 354,717,522,900



    XOM Market Value of Listed Securityt$ 353,175,680,000



    I would call that a pretty well executed transition!





    Well done Apple -- things like this don't just happen!

    Could an admin please remove the images from this thread? What is this, 4chan?



    Locking the CEO like that seems a good idea. Is Tim Cook's salary also going to be $1?

    I expect Tim will need some "walking around" money -- he isn't independently wealthy.

    And especially if it isn't, considering how much of a lowlife the person would have to be to fake something like that.

    Please don't discuss in threads such as these whether you think other posters should be banned or not; it is off-topic. Either start a thread in the feedback forum or send a PM. On this particular occasion please don't send a PM to me because I have no intention of banning him (over this) and you won't change my mind. However, I'm not the only mod on AI...

    Here's another typo. He fixed the one already pointed out above, but missed this one. Even his short posts have multiple typos. Seriously, do these writers just post whatever they want with no supervision?

    Didn't Amelio also get a huge golden parachute when he left Apple? Does Cook have a similar arrangement?

    They are probably using an iPad or Lion/Safari with autoIncorrect turned on!

    True... the $80 million or so in stock he's already cashed in just doesn't buy what it used to.

    I would suspect not... Amelio was recruited/induced to take over a struggling company... a golden parachute, then, was based on risk/reward.



    Cook is being promoted to run a company at the top if its game (much of which is due to his contributions). Today's award is an initial inducement/vote of confidence. There is absolutely no reason that the board could not offer additional rewards/inducements as warranted,



    In the early days of Apple, Jobs was known for handing grey envelopes (containing stock options) to key employees,
