    Apple gets Gay CEO :)

    Tim Cook has become world's most powerful gay man | News.com.au

    NON-inclusive workplaces and a lack of role models are two of the biggest challenges for gay people looking to get ahead in the corporate world.

    Not for too much longer, hope diversity activists, following the appointment of Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

    Cook's rise to the top of the most valuable company in the world could well mean he has become the world's most powerful gay man.

    Cook, who had been notoriously silent on his sexuality before being outed as gay earlier this year by tech media, was ranked number one in Out magazine’s Power 50 index in May, taking over the top spot from US talk show host Ellen Degeneres.

    The 50-year-old engineer was noted as a "leader-in-waiting" after taking the CEO reins on numerous occasions while Jobs was on sick leave.

    He joined Apple in 1998 and served as Chief Operating Officer responsible for the company's worldwide sales and operations.

    I thought the most powerful gay man in the business field was the president of BP? Far ahead of Apple's appointment. Slow news day I figure.

    Jobs looked like a skeleton at the last launch. In the home straight I'd say.

    why is that even a surprise,

    apple has been a gay icon for quite a while now, it used to be for geeks, now it's for fashion cautious metrosexuals and homos,

    I assume he was not promoted to the top job at Apple because he is gay, even though many of their customers would no doubt like to think so.

    So, this is some kind of agenda-thing for a particular. group, eh?


    Well fuck Apple, I won't buy any of their products then. I don't care who he/she is fucking. Just make good quality and decent price. That's value.

    Here's to the queer special interests groups -->

    Wait a minute, that might turn them on.

    Somebody was going to replace Jobs sooner or later (probably sooner)- here's a pic of him post-resignation- he doesn't look like he's gonna be around much longer:

    Apparently Cook has taken up the post of CEO, so the headline will read "Cook to improve Apple Turnover"

    Cheers

    Did Apple ever get round to banning this app...

    Apple 'gay-cure' app severely slapped

    Apple is today accused of anti-gay discrimination, following the release of an iPhone app that aims to help people find “freedom from homosexuality”.

    I wonder if Android has the same app?

    Steve Jobs is an amazing guy. I certainly wish his successor all the best.

    Interesting snippet, but Jobs (just retired CEO of the worlds most valuable company), and Obama (Pres of the US, biggest country in the world in several respects) both had Moslem fathers. A bit of trivia for you.
