Jony Ive looks like a fake to me, he always tries to show a bigger than life image.

Shouldn't he get sacked too for the scratchy design of iPhone 5?

Apple's thought of the day: how long can john keep his job?
Apple's top player's should tread lightly. Anyone in that company is disposable.

Now the million dollar question! Since Scott Forstall is leaving apple, which company would be eagely waiting to hire him? Google? Nokia? Microsoft? or even Jolla?

So this means that Microsoft is gonna hire Scott Forstall and make WP8 even better.

Well, you never know, but maybe it is for the better of IOS future. I'm never an Apple fan but it's probably better to change it now and revamp their aging IOS.

I believe that there might be a cool change now that Jonathan Ive is taking over almost everything. I'm not saying this as an Apple fan.

I would really like to hear Scott's side of the story before acknowledging Apple's side.

Ive doesn't looks very happy. Apple might as well fire all their executive bord of directors

Oh, cool. The guy that has literally made the exact same device, over and over, and over again. He did make the larger and smaller though. Skills. Sell your Apple stock, kids, it's game over!

Apple is no where on "it's way down" people. Think about what you're saying. The iPad Mini and the iPad 4 are sold out again, and the iPhone 5 is selling like no iPhone has ever sold before. Apple is rising as we speak. Their cap is worth close to 3 Googles combined. I'm not a huge fan of them, but it would take a whole lot more than this for them to even begin falling.

Welcome to the world of Windows Phone Mr. Forstall, except don't make it look like iOS like Android has done.
