When we did the show from Aspen back in JuneI stopped at a Starbucks for breakfast one morning, and sitting there having a cup of coffee and noodling around on his iPad was none other than Tim Cook.

Tim Cook. The CEO of Apple — maybe the most valuable company in the world — just sitting there all by his lonesome.

I told you that so I can tell you this. 

Apple spent $699,133 on security for its chief executive last year according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Patently Apple reports.
