  • "Reports of Tim Cook's Pay Cut Greatly Exaggerated: Despite appearances, Apple CEO Tim Cook's $1.3 million cash salary actually was a $400,000 increase over his pay in 2011. The company compensated him with $378 million last year, but the overwhelming majority of it was in restricted share units: a sort of stock grant that has no actual current value." MacNewsWorld 9:11 AM
  • "Apple gives Tim Cook 51 percent salary increase: Apple CEO Tim Cook received compensation totaling $4.17 million in 2012, down 98.9 percent on last year—although his 2011 compensation of $378 million consisted mostly of a one-off stock grant, worth $376.2 million at the time." IDG News Service 10:47 AM

I would first try two things: Try resetting the PRAM and the SMC. There are instructions for both procedures all over the place. Also, determine if this happens only when the 9400 is involved, or does it happen with the 9600 (or with both). Are there any console messages that occur just prior to the panic? What software is running at the time of the crash? Do you recall installing any particular software or attaching any special hardware just prior to this syndrome beginning?" MacInTouch 12:18 PM
