Apple’s Tim Cook demands bigger stock risk (and costs himself $4m)

Apple CEO Tim Cook has pressured the company board on pay, though not the way you might imagine: the chief exec has demanded his salary be more closely linked to Apple's stock price, as a result tumbling by $4m since the company failed to meet its targets. The Apple board had intended to base less than half of Cook's annual stock grants on the CEO performance-based metric it decided to shift to earlier this year. However, according to a preliminary filing with the SEC, Cook himself pushed for a greater chunk of his renumeration to be at risk, arguing that it would "set a leadership example."

Apple's 4th quarter earnings report here in 2013 had mention of the best of said quarters for iPhones sold in the history of the company - but even that didn't sway one user from asking Apple CEO Tim Cook what the benefits were for the newest set of features for the iPhone 5s over the previous generation.

iOS 7 gets flat with Apple banner at WWDC [UPDATE: OS X]

Just days away from the start of the multi-day event, Apple has begun to decorate the Moscone Center West in San Francisco for its yearly developers conference WWDC. This year's first banner appears to bring iOS 7 to the mix with a clear and present - and massive - number 7 in rainbow-colored font. Though it's difficult to tell at the moment with so little to go on, this may be indicative of a "flattening" going on in the aesthetic presentation of the mobile software.

Tim Cook suggests iPhone variations could be in Apple’s future

Tim Cook suggests iPhone variations could be in Apple’s future

Many critics have stated that Apple needs to branch out from its current device line up and toss variations of the iPhone into the mix, offering larger screens, different price points, and hardware variations. The logic behind such ideas is that more competitors than ever are emerging, and some consumers prefer larger screens and different hardware than the iPhone offers, driving them to different products. When asked about this at the D11 conference this evening, Apple's Tim Cook addressed the issue, but not before suggesting such devices could be in Apple's future.
