Apple has released a new game titled “Warren Buffett’s Paper Wizard” for iPhone users. The game will have users tossing papers like Warren Buffett did as a child to earn what they call “Warren Bucks” based on their delivery skills.
This came after Apple CEO Tim Cook made a joke at the Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting. In a short film, he suggested that Warren Buffett could have a newspaper-tossing iPhone game. The game seems to be highly recommended for would-be billionaires.
This would be a milestone because it is the first game Apple has released since 2008. The title of the game, credited to “Wildlife Designs” in the App Store, is clearly an Apple invention according to experts. They say the splash screen and the game’s terms make it clear that it was Apple’s.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, 4th May 2019, Warren Buffett gave a clue on who might succeed him to run the Berkshire Hathaway empire. This he did at the company’s annual shareholder meeting in Nebraska, USA.
Even though he did not directly answer when asked the question of a successor, he said two members of his board of directors will join him and his long-time business partner, Charlie Munger, to answer shareholder questions.
The two board members, who were promoted to the board last year, are 57-year-old Gregory Able and 67-year-old Ajit Jain. Referring to them, Buffett said,
“You could not have two better-operating managers than Greg and Ajit. It’s just fantastic what they’ve accomplished.”
Ajit Jain joined the insurance division of the company in 1986, and he now leads it. Gregory Abel, on the other hand, joined the company in 1992 in the energy division and now oversees all non-insurance activities.
Warren Buffett, at 88, is worth almost $90 billion. He is also the third richest man in the world.
