Apple CEO Tim Cook Busts Some Rusty Moves to Pharrells Happy

Apple CEO Tim Cook Busts Some Rusty Moves to Pharrells Happy

first_img 2 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Tim Cook hikes, bikes and — who knew? — he packs a wicked fist-pump, too. The silver-haired Apple CEO waved his hands in the air like he just didn’t care at an outdoor celebration yesterday. He unabashedly busted some funky cold conservative moves on stage in front of a throbbing sea of partying underlings, to the beat of Pharrell’s bubbly live rendition of “Happy.”Image credit: GizmodoThere was hand-clapping. And some moves that looked more like the breaststroke than dancing. We’re not completely sure.Related: Leadership Lessons From Apple CEO Tim CookVideo clips of the epic dance-off were posted to Instagram but were later removed or set to private. Here’s a video via YouTube:The occasion: Apple’s Earth Day beer bash, a shindig the tech giant puts on every year that you wish you were invited to. The place: Apple’s California sun-drenched headquarters.Naturally, Cook’s backup dancers were big cheeses, too. Eddie Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet software and services, and Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, cut up a mean, kinda awkward rug.Related: Business Bacchanal: Sex, Booze and the Work TripHey, even higher ups can let loose sometimes, right?Cook may not be an unbridled dancing machine like the enthusiasm bomb that is Steve Ballmer, but he can decently clap along. You can’t fault Apple’s head honcho for fist-pumping in public. We’d be doing the happy dance, too, if we were at the helm of one of the richest companies in the world, merrily shimmying our way to the billionaire club.Related: Apples to Apples: Steve Jobs vs. Tim Cook (Infographic) Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.center_img April 23, 2015 Register Now »last_img read more

Sick of Sitting Tired of Standing Take a Load Off With This

Sick of Sitting Tired of Standing Take a Load Off With This

first_img When you can’t stand to sit and don’t want to stand, don’t lean in — lean back. That’s the chill idea behind LeanChair, a new portable reclining desk and chair combo that aims to take the pain out of standing while you work. Now you can slouch like you mean it.Think of it as a standing chair of sorts, a creature comfort contraption to lay your weary bones against, like an upright stretcher. You lean back on LeanChair’s padded backrest at a slight angle in a standing position, but you’re not quite fully standing, so it takes a load off your feet, literally.    Related: In This Vision of a Healthier Workplace, Sitting Is Not AllowedHere, see what we mean:Lest you should get too comfy, doze off and fail to do your work, LeanChair conveniently comes with its own adjustable swiveling minidesk. Pull the lightweight worktable up to just the right height and you’re in business. There’s even an inclined footrest for your extended standing pleasure.There are some downsides, however. LeanChair’s built-in desk provides ample space to hold a keyboard, tablet or laptop, but not necessarily enough for a full-sized computer monitor on top of all of that.Wayne Yeager, of Lexington, Ky., is the enterprising mind behind the LeanChair. The serial inventor-entrepreneur knows something about back-breaking hard work. He’s run a 440-acre farm for 14 years, all while holding down several other tech-related jobs, many involving sitting and staring at a computer screen for hours on end.Related: What’s Really Killing You (and It Isn’t Ebola)He created the quirky recliner after seeing scads of articles damning sitting as the new smoking. He wanted to stand and work but couldn’t stand standing at a standing desk. You get the idea.Yeager’s first version of the LeanChair featured a hard wooden plank backrest, similar to the stiff “leaning boards” early Hollywood starlets used to keep their elaborate costumes from wrinkling whilst they rested between takes. Not so comfy. Yeager’s latest model, which looks pretty close to a product you’d find in The Sharper Image catalog, launched on Kickstarter four days ago. The campaign has raised some $9,000 so far with 26 days to go toward a $25,000 goal. To get your own LeanChair lean on, you have to pledge $245 or more.    Wayne testing LeanChair prototypeImage credit: LeanChair Related: 5 Reasons to Get Off Your Butt at Work June 16, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 3 min readcenter_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.
