A recent online auction has granted one Apple fan to wine and dine with the much loved CEO Tim Cook. The bidding took place on charity site CharityBuzz, where Mr Cook offered himself up for sharing lunch to the highest payer. The predicted sale was $100,000, however, the bidding outperformed the sum greatly ending at $300,000. The head boss will grant approximately one hour of his time to two lucky people, the bidder and a friend or family member.
The winner of the auction is clearly not your average online shopper; his name has not been disclosed. Tim Cook has also added the chance for an opportunity to be guest of honor at the next Apple event hoping to increase the bidding, helping human rights charity the Robert F. Kennedy fund (RFK).
This may be an opportune time to get in on the latest news at Apple, especially with the imminent release of the highly anticipated iPhone 6 and iWatch. But nevertheless, it's good to see Tim Cook acting on behalf of charity.
