Yesterday late, Apple revamped its online presence. The previous separate store is gone, replaced by direct buying links on each product page, and a unified "shopping bag" icon to replace the "store" button in the top menu bar of the site. Clicking on the purchase link no longer redirects to the store.apple.com domain, instead filling the always-available shopping bag, and streamlines the product purchase process.

While other design tweaks have been made here and there, the search bar has been significantly changed, now holding links to the old Accessories, Apple Stores, Explore, and Support menus.

Apple files 14A report on CEO compensation, Cook takes $700k annually to protect

According to Apple's recent Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Schedule 14A report, Apple CEO Tim Cook requires $699,133 in personal security at events, and for his home. Other funds doled out to the CEO include term life insurance expenses of $2,520, 401(k) contributions of $15,600, and vacation cash-out of $56,923.

Patently Apple was the first venue to point out the expenditure, which does not include physical security at Apple's headquarters, or Apple-sponsored events like keynote speeches or product rollouts. A 2014 report by Aquilar notes that Jeff Bezos required $1.6 million in security, and Larry Ellison required $1.5 million while CEO of Oracle.

I absolutely HATE this. It's horrible to compare prices between various mobile devices. It's convoluted.
