I just don't get who approved it?

I'm not trying to disparage their hard work. I could never write code and create a UI for an Apple product. But you can work real hard digging out a drinking well with just a spoon; it doesn't mean it was a good idea though.

In a way this reminds of when Steve got kicked out of Apple, but like 10 steps before he tried to oust Sculley. Steve was also know for being rather stubborn, bossy, and (if one wanted go to an extreme) petulant. The restraint Jobs learned in his exile brought us Pixar and eventually the underpinning of NeXT into Apple and ultimately OSX, and thus iOS.

If the rumors of Forstall being as rancorous with both staff and management are even partway true, then perhaps this will be good for both him and Apple in the long run. Steve learned you can be a bossy blowhard, but you have to be nice bossy blowhard.

Just so long as Cook keeps an eye on Google and Microsoft... especially if MS can get its own house in order and pull its Phone/Tablet/Desktop/Server elements together in a cohesive and mutually supportive package.

Thank god Ive is in control of software design now. Now maybe they can get rid of those awful Forstall abominations that infected Find My Friends and other apps.

Well, I could say any number of things and they all would be untrue because, who the hell knows what they are talking about. As far as I known they are taking about some hot busty chick who is not in the camera field of view.

Who knows, maybe he changed, ego'ed up, got a big head and started seeing himself as the next Apple big shot since Steve died.

I got that simply from this pic. The only pic I ever seen of Forstall. It's just written "Pompous, thinks he's a big shot, a dick to everyone" all over his face.
