Forstall leaving the company!

"(CNN) -- Scott Forstall, one of the most visible faces of Apple in the wake of Steve Jobs' death, is leaving the company in a surprise shakeup at the head of Apple' ranks.
Forstall, a senior vice president in charge of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS, will act as an adviser to CEO Tim Cook until departing some time next year, according to a news release from the company."

It seems he got the boot...


Quote:
The New York Times confirmed the firing, along with the unrelated ouster of Apple's new retail chief, John Browett.
The Journal reported that some within Apple considered Forstall a divisive figure who "never fit into the culture at Apple," and who had long rankled other company execs but enjoyed the confidence of Steve Jobs.

The new retail guy, John Browett, got the boot also! He was only there for six months.
