Cue, a calendar aggregator, was sold by a 21-year-old Israeli living in California to Apple, Inc. for millions.

Tech giant Apple, Inc. will pay some $40 million or more to acquire a start-up created by 21-year-old Israeli Daniel Gross, formerly of Jerusalem, and now living in California, tech media reported at the weekend.

Israel’s Calcalist website said Gross is a native of Katamon, Jerusalem, a yeshiva high school graduate and has been on pre-military leave. He planned to serve in the IDF after high school, but changed course after a small start-up he created generated interest in Silicon Valley.

Origianally called Greplin, his company was renamed Cue and raised $10 million from Index Fund, Lerer and a group of angel investors in Silicon Valley, Calcalist said.

The Cue service aggregates appointments across a user’s social media accounts to make managing them simpler via a calendar function. The company’s employees will soon move to Apple.

    Great job and stay in touch!!!

    That’s great,especially at age 21, but the guy also needs to come back to Israel and do his military service! The rest of our boys, at least the non religious ones, don’t get exempt from army service to go off and earn $40 million. Wonder what income tax looks like on $40 mill.

      don’t ever recall any religious boy getting military leave to go and earn $40 million. The ones I know don’t leave Israel but they stay and learn in Yeshiva while living on no self income and while others do army and then leave the country

    Great Israeli, so the creation will be shared by people from various races in the world. I hope it will get original halal logo so that muslims can use.

      MUSLIMS DON’T NEED CALENDARS TO KNOW WHEN TO VISIT THEIR EVIL UPON JEWS, ISRAEL AND THE WEST!
