It wasn’t exactly a banner news day in the Apple world, but there are a couple of items that are definitely worth taking note of. First off, Phil Schiller, Apple’s longtime VP of Worldwide Marketing has stepped down from his executive-level role at the company.
Phil Schiller’s hardline and tone-deaf response is a really bad look just before WWDC
I just wrote about this a couple of days ago, but here we are again. It’s just a few days until we get lots of new goodies at WWDC and this is what we are talking about instead. Come on, Apple. Taking such a hard line on their App Store fee structure and current rules and enforcement is just piling one mistake on top of another one.
The New York Times has published an interesting piece covering the tech of the last decade called The Decade Tech Lost its Way. It delves into the fast-moving path of technology in the 2010s through the words of the people who lived it made it happen. What I’ve read has been interesting and insightful and I definitely recommend taking a look at the entire article. That said, I can’t help but focus on the segment covering the development and lead up to release of the original iPad.
