He got a crap-ton of stock in the previous year that has been on the up-swing of late, so let's not feel to bad for him.

so Tim Cook is poorer than Angela Ahrendts or Eddy Cue ???

"poor" is not a word I would ever use in comparison of any of those people.

Big company CEOs get big pay but Yosemite is an unmitigated disaster.
Fix it, Cook. We're running out of patience.
While you're at it, grow a pair and reign in Ivy's input in software in which he obviously knows little about.

Tim Cook is over-payed and not the right guy to lead Apple.

He clearly is a first-class operations officer, but he doesn't have the product instincts to lead one of the most creative companies in the world (or what used to be) or the strength of personality to ride herd over the sprawling and somewhat undisciplined company that Apple has become.

Apple quality control (its most important asset) has taken a major nose-drive since Cook took over, with appalling bugs going many months or more before being fixed (just one example: how many times a day do I find my iPhone 6 won't quickly switch from portrait to landscape mode or vice versa when I take it out of my pocket?). And so many Apple products are left to go stale like Apple TV, iWork, displays, Radio, etc.

I wish Cook were the right guy for the job but he's not. He's a caretaker, not a creator, and Apple's success during his reign has largely been due to coasting on previous momentum that Jobs created over the years.

Apple and Cook are heading for a reckoning, and it's not going to be pretty when it happens.
