That's right, don't let facts get in the way of your, and Bloomberg's, baseless misrepresentation. Read the article:

"The total includes $376.2 million in shares, half of which will vest in five years and the remaining amount in 10 years,"

Long term vesting options are not compensation in the year of receipt, though it makes a great headline.

Tim Cook is the obvious choice for CEO. Just like Browett was.

That said, they should have put Ive as the head of the company. He's the only senior executive that has a Jobs like mystique. He's also the only exec that could continue or build the cult-like following and focus on the principle of new products like Jobs.

With Tim at the helm, it's back to Scully think. Classic management orientation, focused on productivity that will lead to short term gains at the expense of the culture and company.

^^^^ Edit: Also per the above, if Tim's going to bleed the company rather than focus on transformative products, he should at least offer a bigger dividend like every other cash cow.

Exactly. When you put in as much time as he has and you feel you should be next in line and you don't get it? You get the hell out and find something to do that better reflects your value.

Best of luck to him

That was Sculley, a businessman from Pepsi, and he knew nothing about computers...

Apple hired a knowledgable person for within this time...
