If you’ve been looking for a sign that Apple would be different under new CEO Tim Cook than it was under Steve Jobs, look no further.
Mr. Cook has also displayed some different corporate philosophies from Mr. Jobs. The new CEO recently announced a charitable matching program promising Apple would match employee donations to non-profits of up to $10,000 a year, starting in the U.S. In contrast, Mr. Jobs said at a company off-site last year that he was opposed to giving money away, according to a person who attended.
As you may recall, Jobs has been criticized by many for shunning charitable giving — he was reportedly of the view that focusing on developing new technologies was a better use of his and Apple’s time and money. BTW, Apple is the second richest company in the world.
Now maybe there’s a chance this silly Flash grudge can be set aside once and for all in the near future?
