Apple boss Tim Cook to give away fortune to charity

Tim Cook has shown he is no bad apple by becoming the latest member of the super-rich to promise to give his wealth away.

The head of the world’s largest technology corporation is worth an estimated 722 million euros, but will only be personally leaving the cost of a college education to a nephew.

Aged 54 Cook has increased his charitable actions recently with a particular emphasis on environmental and human rights issues.

While Cook cannot match the scale of Warren Buffet and the Gates’ “Giving Pledge” initiative he says will be trying a more “systematic” approach to giving.
