Ever Wished You Could Just Grab a Cup of Coffee With Apple's Tim Cook?

By Sam Gibbs on at

Well now you can, if you're minted that is. In probably the most genius move I've seen in a long time for generating cash for charities, some bright spark has come up the idea of auctioning off coffee time with Tim Cook, Elon Musk, and even Robert DeNiro. The only problem is Cook's already going for over £110,000.

The money goes to a human rights charity, which is a worthy cause I guess. You'll probably have to buy the coffee too, but if you've just forked out more than a Lambo on about 30 minutes of Tim Cook's time, plus the flight of course, then what difference does another tenner on top make? I'm sure Tim would be thrilled to know what you think of the iPhone 5 and what Apple's doing wrong.

Maybe this could be an excellent way to generate a bit of cash if revenue is down and your sales aren't looking all that good -- just sell time with your CEO, I'm sure he'd love that. [CharityBuzz via AllthingsD]
