Poor Maps team, they'll probably won't get holidays until 2013. Maybe at least someone will bring some turkey to their dungeon.

I saw that and that was my first thought as well. In the other hand we all know professionals need the tools to make apps for the iToys, so I don't think Apple will abandon it completely.

WTF Tim! What are you doing? You let the buggiest IOS to date be released!
The Maps App was a Flop!
Everyone knew what the damn phone looked like before it was released.
You cant keep up with the US supply of iphone 5 and you sending to other countries!

Now rewarding your workers for inadequacies!

I say work over the holidays to fix the IOS Issues!

great
Retail employees shouldn't be surprised that retail stores remain open to.... you know... sell products.

If they don't like this perhaps a different line of work would be in order?

Cook may never be the visionary that Jobs was, but I think he will prove to be the better CEO. Cook strikes a more diplomatic tone with other companies and is better at generating employee morale. Apple has grown into a mature company (that still has growth potential) and going forward, I think management will prove to be more important than vision. (NOT meaning that it's unimportant, just not as critical as their earlier days). I think Jobs recognized this and it's why he chose Cook.

This kind of transition worked out well for Disney and IBM. It is also what's happening at Google - they used to churn out new products at an almost weekly rate.

Unless they already bought a Nokia Lumia which looks exactly the same

I'm going to assume that these extra days off do not count against any employee's personal leave (or annual leave or whatever Apple calls it) - it's literally extra time off with pay. If so, that's cool.

With seven weeks notice, I could probably get my boss to approve taking the entire week of Nov. 19 off, but it would cost me 24 hours that I'd rather use at some other point.

Did you even read what you wrote because it sounds like you are pissed because you (in retail) have to work some of the busiest days of retail sales for the year and then - get this - you get to take those 3 days off in less hectic retail months.

So basically you are saying "Waaaaah, I have to take my 3 days later than someone else."

Wow. You seriously should look for a new line of work.

I was just about to write this same things. This is probably the least innovative and lack lustre year of apple since 1996. I have been using Apple products professionally for 2 decades. This year I was "forced" to buy a PC. It made me incredibly sad to have to leave the apple universe.

The crowds apple has attracted now are strangely forgiving of the ginormous holes in the desktop line. OS X is in very poor shape as well. Ever since Bertrand left.. OS x has been extremely buggy and losing it's professional limbs. It is an extension of the ipad/iphone it seems.

I sure hope the best for apple's post-pc strategy, but honestly.. Other than just copying google services, they don't have much functionality or substance any more for professionals. The style of the hardware is innovative, but they lost the guts. They used to be on par if not ahead of the PC industry.

This letter applies to everyone except Scott Forstall. He will be handling all support calls for IOS6 issues during that 5 day period.

Did you not know this when you signed up to work in retail?

Maybe being a 'genius' takes some of the sting out of it? No?
