1. Apple CEO Tim Cook's Announces That He Is Gay To Shock Of Dozens
Tim Cook—the Apple chair whom, assuming you've heard of him, you probably know is gay—came out as gay in an unusually personal essay published by Bloomberg Businessweek today. "I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me," wrote the famously gay businessman who is only now opening up about his sexuality.
Tim Cook says "he's proud to be gay,"but I bet by next year his gay will be 2X as proud and with a multitude of new I/O ports.— Miles Kahn (@mileskahn) October 30, 2014
