Apple's shareholder meeting is uneventful, no Jobs.

Apple’s first annual shareholder meeting in more than 10 years without founder and CEO Steve Jobs was largely uneventful, as COO Tim Cook and board members stepped in to handle questions regarding Apple’s disclosure of Jobs’ health.

Five shareholder proposals were considered, and only the one approving the re-election of Apple’s eight existing board members was approved in preliminary voting. As in past years, the informal question-and-answer section was by far more interesting, although without Jobs’ usual acerbic replies to institutional shareholders on soapboxes, a little duller.

Some of the more interesting highlights from the meeting:

Jobs’ health

Happy birthday


Executive compensation

Al Gore, socialism, and TV ads
