Tim Cook more popular than Steve Jobs as Apple CEO

Tim Cook is the world's best CEO, according to new figures which have seen Apple employees give him a higher approval rating than the legendary Steve Jobs

Apple CEO Tim Cook has been rated as the world's top CEO for 2012 and in doing so has scored a higher approval rating than his predecessor, the legendary co-founder Steve Jobs.

Cook, who took over from an ailing Jobs last summer, has already garnered a 97 per cent approval rating among staff at One Infinite Loop, whereas his late mentor scored an also-impressive 95 per cent thumbs-up during his last quarter as Apple chief executive.

The early vote of confidence for Cook is a sign that the new era at Apple, which continues to be unthinkably profitable, is also being embraced by the rank and file Apple staffers.

The International Business Times points out that it took Jobs years to earn such a positive rating from his charges.

Rounding out an all-tech top three are Qualcomm CEO Paul E. Jacobs (95 per cent) and another somewhat recent appointment, Google CEO Larry Page, who has the full backing of 94 per cent of Google employees.

Meanwhile, while we're on the subject of Steve Jobs, it appears that Ashton Kutcher has been cast as the storied visionary in a new independent movie about Jobs' life. Apparently Demi Moore's ex will portray the 'wayward hippie' stage of his life. No, it's not an April Fool's joke.
