This final note on the way out, in which Apple CEO Tim Cook inadvertently confirms his company is in fact a cult.

Speaking at a Goldman Sachs technology conference, Cook said that whenever he’s feeling depressed, he just goes into an Apple store. “It’s like Prozac or something,” he said. “If I ever feel myself dropping down from an excited level, I go into a store.”

Also — and maybe this has something to do with lightening his mood — Cook said the average Apple store generated $50 million in revenue last year.
