It’s been almost one month since Apple CEO Steve Jobs handed over the reins to then-COO Tim Cook, and the company has never looked better. 

Shares in Apple closed at US$411.63 yesterday after reaching a high of US$413.23. The day of Jobs’ resignation, August 25, the shares fell to US$368.79, although they rebounded in the days following.

On current trading, Apple now has a comfortable lead on Exxon Mobil for the title of largest company in the world.

Cook's most significant change has been to introduce a charitable matching program for the company's US employees. Read our story here.
