"Our industries are different, but our purpose is similar - do the best for our people, provide the highest level of service possible, and make a positive impact in the world," wrote Schultz.

As 9to5Mac points out, Apple has teamed up with the Coast Guard in the past. Following 2017's Hurricane Harvey, the Coast Guard used helicopters equipped with iPads to coordinate search and rescue teams.

I suspect Tim Cook wakes up at 3 am each day, surfs the Internet at home, shower, makes break fast, leaves for the Apple campus, arrives at work, surfs the Internet until 12, has lunch, surfs Internet from 1 to 3 pm, takes a walk around the circle, goes back to his office, surfs the Internet until 5:30 PM, commutes home, makes dinner, showers, surfs the Internet until 9 pm then goes to bed. Wakes up then does it all over again until he probably has to practice a few lines how to read the content on the prompter for a new product launch and occasional meet and greets like this.

Steve Jobs once said he was worried about him to the extent he had to call his mother to find out what’s going on. I hope someone is worried about Tim these days.

I hope you’re joking. Cook is a notorious workaholic. Steve called his mother because he was worried Tim was sacrificing his social life by working too hard. One doesn’t get picked by Steve to become the COO of Apple by surfing the internet all day.

I wonder what this Schultz guy could make of a global impact.

His comment is Americanism at its best: i do something good for American equals I do something good for the world.... NOT!

America is part of the world. Plus it’s just an expression. As in: Each of us doing something positive is hoping to put some good out into the world. Jeez.
