    are we now going to be subjected to these posts just like the "I wish Steve were here" whining? Wonderful.

    Instead of posting here, go talk to Tim about it. Go Apple! Go Forstall!

    Forestall was never involved with the Mac anyways, he was the iOS guy.

    No. On WWDC 2006 he was responsible at Leopard and he makes demos (like Craig Federighi now). Maybe he was even responsible for Leopard-like design (2007-2013)

    Nope. skeuomorphic designs are crap. He was arrogant, and responsible for that POS apple maps.

    He's best left out of Apple.

    Why? I'll take Craig Federighi over him any day. Craig seems down to earth and not arrogant at all.

    Because flat gawdy gradients are more intuitive and aesthetically pleasing? Forstall cannot be held responsible for the data in Maps, just the app which is/was outstanding.

    He was arrogant? You mean like Steve Jobs? Surely that can't be good for Apple /s

    He co-produced a Broadway play a couple years ago.

    And he probably spends a lot of time counting his $50 million.
