    Apple today announced that Craig Federighi and Dan Riccio will be joining the company's senior executive team, receiving promotions to the Senior Vice President level.

    Federighi succeeded Bertrand Serlet as head of Mac Software Engineering in early 2011, but was not elevated to the senior executive team at that time. Riccio is currently transitioning to lead Hardware Engineering as Bob Mansfield steps down.
    Apple has also announced that Mansfield will remain with the company rather than retiring as previously announced, staying on to "work on future products" and reporting directly to CEO Tim Cook.

    It must be really weird to retire and then take it back.

    Riccio's degree is in mechanical engineering, so it seems highly unlikely Mansfield's and his day-to-day duties would have been the exact same. Honestly, sounds like Mansfield wanted out of overseeing so many people to have a more focused responsibility within the company, and Tim must have been eager to bow to the demand to keep him on.

    I'm not saying the 'Apple Television' is real. I'm just saying that if it IS real you'd put someone you already trusted in charge of it AND you wouldn't be able to announce that which would lead to weird nonsensical news stories like "Senior exec. leaves job but stays with company and reports to CEO."

    Something like that.

    I think anybody would, since cleaning toilets is pretty remedial.

    Keeping Mansfield is very good.
    I guess he wanted out of the day-to-day grind and Apple was able to find something... Maybe he'll be working on the crazy stuff that won't be coming out for 5 years (if ever) that you know they are working on!
