While I don't like Apple, you can't blame Apple or Cook for promoting this. PA is promoting this, not Apple. All Apple/Cook did was agree to have lunch with someone for a charitable reason. I don't see one reason to have any negativity towards this unless you don't support the charity.

Here comes the Greed.. Apple always trying to get more out of blind-fans. This is not charity. The people actualy giving money are nowhere on the scene. All the applause & accolades goes to Apple; & Apple didnt spent a penny on this. Is this charity or LOOT?

why would you want to have lunch with him when there are better ceo's to have lunch with?. I would pay nothing because he honestly does not deserve any kind of money. Having lunch with Larry or Peter from Google or HTC would be so cool and beneficial than Tim cook. He's all talk not action at all.

Hahahahahahahahahahaha! Funny comments. As much as most of you guys think this is pathetic of apple, I feel its innovative. Ordinarily, apple can't ask any big/rich gadget freaky business guy to donate $100k to a charity organisation. Instead, they try going by this method. Frankly, I would have loved to bid for this if the price was within my budget. Ofcos I'm sure a lunch time with Tim Cooke guarantees minimum of one hour discussion time with him. I can imagine how much I'd enjoy telling him that as much as apple products are adorable (premium wise), I can't use any of them. Things like Bluetooth and Expandable memory matters to me when it comes to smartphone choice.

I was with you until you said "Bluetooth." You do realize the iPhone was the first to have BT 4.0 LE and it is the gold standard for Bluetooth, right? Bluetooth streaming/playback on every phone I have owned has been a disappointment except for the iPhone.

http://www.charitybuzz.com/?sort_direction=desc&sort_by=bid_count Look at all of these fools doing auctions for charity as a publicity stunt. The truth is, we are too poor to even bid at any of these auctions. We don't even give a single dime to that homeless guy at the corner. --Fandroid logic

God! There is so much ignorance here from so many posting about how these charitable events work. "Oh, it's for charity," "everyone wins," "this is good!" Listen morons! Apple and Tim Cook are doing this for one reason: for publicity and good public relations! Tim Cook and rest of his ilk do not give a rat's a$$ about charity! Do you think any of this is coming out of their own pockets? It's called charitable contributions by the IRS and is written off at the end of the tax year. Nothing comes out of Apple's and Tim Cook's pockets! You, me, and every other taxpayer in this country pay for this crap! That's who gets stuck with the bill! To pretend otherwise is sheer ignorance on how the system works, or complete apathy of the masses to just accept this crap because we like our gadgets!
