How Would You Like to Have Lunch with Warren Buffett? Here’s How!

If you have ever wanted to have lunch with arguably the greatest investor in the world, Warren Buffett, well now you have your chance. In addition to eating with Buffett, the head of Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA) (BRKB), you get to pick his brain about investing.

All you need to do is be the successful bidder for the eBay (EBAY) auction of the Power Lunch with Warren Buffett to Benefit GLIDE. The current bid at the time this article was written is $1,510,100.00. There have been 23 bids so far and the starting bid was $25,000.

Buffett will have a meal with the winning bidder and up to seven friends at Smith & Wollensky in New York City on a mutually agreed upon date.

All of proceeds from the winning bid will benefit GLIDE, one of the leading social service institutions working to alleviate human suffering and poverty in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Trivia: The iPhone Name was Originally Owned by Cisco, Not Apple

Here is a bit of financial trivia for you.  Linksys, a division of Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO), released its iPhone on Monday, December 18, 2006, which was a phone that connects to a home wireless network for making phone calls through the Internet using the Skype service. Skype was originally owned by eBay Inc. (EBAY)at the time and is now owned by Microsoft (MSFT).

It had been anticipated that Apple Computer Corp. (AAPL) would be using the iPhone name back then, but it had been registered by Cisco in 2000. The iPhone trademark is now owned by Apple.

More info about the “first” iPhone release can be found here, an article from bizjournals back in 2006.
