    AppleInsider reports that Apple CEO Tim Cook has been chosen by Time magazine as one of the runners up to US President Barack Obama as Time Person of the Year 2012, alongside fellow runners-up, Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, and scientist Fabiola Gianotti. In a three-page profile on Cook, written by Lev Grossman, Cook’s the importance of the beginning of Tim Cook’s tenure at the helm of Apple, after Steve Jobs’ untimely passing, is examined in detail, and includes quotes from Cook himself. In the profile, Time notes that when Cook became Apple CEO, this marked the first time in Apple history that a former CEO had not been ousted by the incoming CEO.



    Many congratulations to Tim Cook on such an honour.
