Tim Cook Now Selling Himself for £400K

By Chris Mills on at

Even though Apple's still earning money hand-over-gold-coated-fist, Apple CEO Tim Cook is still having to intellectually prostitute himself at auction -- but at least it's for a good cause. Yes, it's that time of the year again: how much would you pay to not have coffee with the Cook-man?

Last year, you may remember, some complete sucker fairly wealthy individual paid four hundred thousand shiny British pounds for the pleasure of an hour of Mr Cook's time. Seeing as it was such a roaring success (and, in fairness, a pretty good fundraising gig for the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights), Timmy's going for Round Two.

Bidding started at $10,000, and it's already up to $62,500, with the value estimated at $100,000. So, coffee with Tim Cook; or 170 brand new iPhones? I know which I'd prefer. [CharityBuzz via Mashable]
