Apple Feeds Cook 1 Million Shares Worth $390 Million

It's official, we're in the wrong business. Don't get us wrong, playing with the latest hardware and sharing our experiences with our awesome reader base is a blast, and there aren't many things we'd trade this gig for. Being CEO of Apple is one of the few exceptions.

Don't take it personal if you're a die hard Windows user, it's just that when a company offers a million shares of stock worth well over a quarter of a billion dollars, who would refuse the job? Not Tim Cook, who accepted the gig before we could submit our resume, and is now worth $390 million more than he was before he stepped in to fill Steve Jobs' shoes.


"In connection with Mr. Cook's appointment as Chief Executive Officer, the Board awarded Mr. Cook 1,000,000 restricted stock units," Apple said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), according to a report in the International Business Times.

At the time of this writing, Apple's stock is wroth $389.97, and times a million, that equals a lot of money ($389,970,000 if you want to split hairs). With all that loot, Mr. Cook could build a no-holds barred Windows gaming PC, which is exactly what we'd do, along with a small island to go with it.
