Yesterday, Apple CEO Tim Cook ousted Scott Forstall, the man who designed the software for Apple’s most valuable products, the iPad and the iPhone.
Reportedly, rank and file Apple employees are thrilled with the news.
Wow. Who saw that coming. Forstall is the face of iOS. People commented he wasn’t at the iPad mini event, but then there wasn’t any iOS stuff there. Maybe Jobs strongly supported Forstall, and after a respectful amount if time, Scott Forstall is out. Maybe not a bad thing he’s gone. The tech press do make a lot of noises about how the iPhone hardware is superior to Android devices but that iOS is beginning to lag behind Android OS. (On the latest This Week in Tech for instance) I’ve been droid-curious and thought about getting a device just to see what the differences are.
