A Cup of Coffee With Apple CEO Going for $180,000

It might be the most expensive cup of coffee ever. If you want to meetApple's chief executive Tim Cook over a hot brew at the company's headquarters in Cupertino, California, you'll need to stump up more than $180,000 – the current going price for an auction on the website Charitybuzz that will give you some real face time with the man now running the business.

Proceeds from the auction, which will run until 14 May, are going to the Robert F Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, a charity, making Cook the latest participant in an ongoing series of "time auctions" to bring benefits from celebrity.
