STEVE HENN, BYLINE: One of our first chances to see him in a unstructured environment and see how he responds on the seat.

BLOCK: In an interesting move last week, Cook gave up a bonus, a really big bonus.

BLOCK: That money is from the company's new dividend payments to employees. And that's our very quick Look Ahead to the week's tech news...

HENN: Seventy-five million dollars.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

BLOCK: ...with NPR's Steve Henn.
