Apple's board members earnings for the past year were revealed in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The documents revealed that CEO Tim Cook received compensation of over $9.22 million in 2014, which is more than double his pay from 2013.
The $9.22 million that Tim Cook earned includes the $1.75 million salary, $6.7 million in non-equity incentives and other company contributions. Cook's salary in 2013 amounted to $1.4 million, but these numbers don't reflect the $69.6 million in vested stock options. When he took over as CEO in 2011, Cook received a $378 million payout package and a $372.6 million one-time stock award scheduled to vest through 2021.
What's interesting, however, is that the newly appoint SVP of Retail, Angela Ahrendts, who was hired on in...

Once you see this tech, (if you haven't already) you may have reason to be irritated with us for missing it.
After discussing Windows 10, Microsoft also announced an experimental new product which they have been working on for over 5 years. It's called HoloLens, and it's basically everything Google Glass wants to be and much, much more. In fact, HoloLens may just be the next "disruptive" tech device that shakes up the entire electronics...
