» Forstall, Browett leaving Apple


Apple’s Senior Vice President, iOS Software Scott Forstall and Retail chief John Browett will leave the company and the rest of the executive team will take over additional responsibilities, the company has announced. Forstall will leave in 2013 and Browett will also leave at an unspecified date.

Tim Cook’s statement here is clear: Apple will not tolerate executives whose names end in double consonants. That’s just smart policy.

Better look out, Bruce Sewell.
