SAN FRANCISCO, Aug 22 (Reuters) – Shortly after signing on
as chief operating officer at Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg was
looking to connect with people in a similar role – No. 2 to a
brilliant and passionate young founder. She called Tim Cook.
“He basically explained nicely that my job was to do the
things that Mark (Zuckerberg) did not want to focus on as much,”
Sandberg said of the 2007 meeting that lasted several hours with
the chief operating officer of Apple Inc.
First Dell, now Apple. I can’t believe Icahn is now involved in my two of the companies I cover. I am on defecto iCahn beat!!
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Months of public bickering, secretive backroom negotiations and eleventh-hour deals for control of Dell Inc belie the fact that the combatants are vying for a company facing steadily declining sales prospects.
The tussle between Chief Executive Michael Dell and firebrand activist investor Carl Icahn is also starting to spook some customers.
