How much money do you earn in a day?

If you were Steve Jobs, you’d take home the equivalent of a little over P85,000,000 a day.  Every day. That’s including weekends and holidays.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs makes US$647,000,000 a year, according to Forbes Magazine, making him the highest paid CEO of 2006, and Number One in their list of the top 200 folk with the fattest paychecks. Although on paper Jobs just earns one dollar a year as a salary, he makes more in exercised stock options.

Not bad for a college dropout.

Something to think about every 15th and 30th.

Letters from Steve #2 May 4, 2007

A Greener Apple

Excerpt:

Apple has been criticized by some environmental organizations for not being a leader in removing toxic chemicals from its new products, and for not aggressively or properly recycling its old products. Upon investigating Apple’s current practices and progress towards these goals, I was surprised to learn that in many cases Apple is ahead of, or will soon be ahead of, most of its competitors in these areas. Whatever other improvements we need to make, it is certainly clear that we have failed to communicate the things that we are doing well.
