Cupertino, Calif. - Apple CEO Tim Cook -- who has been called the world's most powerful gay man -- is quietly changing the company's culture now that Steve Jobs has passed away.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Cook has been more communicative than Jobs -- and actually starts mass emails to employees with the friendly term "Team."

Cook has also unveiled a new charitable giving policy. Apple will now match employee's charitable donations, up to $10,000. In contrast, Jobs memorably told employees at a meeting last year that he was opposed to giving money away, the WSJ reported.

Cook has also been more interested in administrative issues like promotions and corporate structure.

However, the WSJ reported that Cook is not a fan of reorganizations and is unlikely to change the products in any significant way.
