Joy of Tech’s funny read on Scott Forstall’s ousting

By , Oct 31, 2012

Joy of Tech does regular takes on the tech industry’s blunders and Apple is often the subject of their daily web comic. This is their view of Monday’s executive shake-up that saw CEO Tim Cook fire long-time iOS chief Scott Forstall and retail boss (though he never earned that title) John Browett. Go past the fold for the comic and an additional explanation…

Here’s your comic, courtesy of Joy of Tech.

Now, Apple immediately pulled Scott’s profile from its Executive Profiles page, but if you ask Siri about Forstall, she still doesn’t have a clue he was let go, per Cult of Mac.

Uncle Eddy will hopefully see to that.

In case you’ve been wondering, the top image of the Overly Attached Forstall is credited to Christopher Downer, interface designer at Realmac Software.

Who’s Craig?

Craig Federighi, the chief of the Mac software division, now also in charge of iOS.

He’s got some pretty big shoes to fill, if you ask me.

Anyway, feel free to post your funny take down in the comment.

    Sounds good, after all I did like Mountain Lion more than iOS 6.

    He is the one who created the gizmo and smartphone O/S that way leap 3 years than others, leaving others to catch up when iphone released. I don’t think Apple Maps was his idea, more than Tim idea to kick out Google apps.

    I know who is Craig, he does lots of OSX keynote presentations in Apple events. He is a guy with huge intellect and i’m sure he can replace Scott.
