10 Questions to Ask Apple's Tim Cook Over a Cup of Coffee
To benefit charity, Tim Cook is offering up the amount of time it takes to drink a cup of coffee with him to one lucky bidder. The donation site Charitybuzz is currently allowing folks to post bids to sit down with Cook to discuss just about any topic with him. The top bid had exceeded $600,000 as of April 29, with more than two weeks to go before the bid deadline. According to the Charitybuzz, the actual value of the amount of time to be spent with Cook is $50,000, indicating that bidding will likely soar in the coming weeks. Although eWEEK isn't participating in the bidding for a chance to sit down with Cook, that doesn't stop us from trying to tell whomever the winner should talk about. Over the past couple of years, Cook has established himself as one of the most successful and surprisingly crafty chief executives in the technology industry. And some of the moves he has—and hasn't—made during his tenure as chief executive should definitely be brought to light in any conversation with the man. This slide show will take a look at some of the questions it would ask Apple CEO Cook if it ever had a chance to sit down him over a cup of coffee. Cook might not choose to answer some of them, but they all should be asked.
