Apple's retail VP Jerry McDougal calls it quits
McDougal will be replaced by Jim Bean, formerly VP of Finance. Meanwhile, Apple is still looking for someone to replace John Browett, the man that was at the top of the totem pole at Apple's retail division. You might recall that Browett joined Apple last year after a stint at retailer Dixons and was quickly awarded a pay package worth as much as $61 million before getting canned by Apple.

why should he quit? He is doing a great job: World changing Apple Maps, bendable iPhones and exciting sky diving of Apple stock :)

Yup, he will allow Apple to crumble to nothing. If Apple was to disappear tomorrow it wouldn't even affect me. When Steve Jobs died Apple went with him. There is no innovation coming out of Apple worth buying.
So Tim Cook can either innovate or just run Apple into the ground. A iPhone 5S will guarantee that I will not buy a Apple product in 2013.

Because we are still very very very angry at the only consumer electronics company which limited consumer choice via banning of competitibe products - and which still attempts to do so to this very day.

because they are greedy to the bones. they are more going after the money than innovating.

i hope the crumble manifests in Apple lowering their pricing for their computers...

They are probably blaming the retail Dept. for the drop and they were probably like
"F*** you guys then... I quit"
And we all know it wasn't the retail dept...

Apple should patent firing employees. I mean - they do it best as of lately.
