"...exactly what philanthropic activities he participated in is not clear, as the report falls short of providing specifics..."
Translation: He can't find a job and no one wants him.
Translation: You don't know the specifics of the situation.
He was under contract to Apple until some time this year and couldn't really go work anywhere. Surprising to even hear that he was allowed to be a consultant for small companies.

Go easy on him. In a parallel universe, where Apple Maps turned out amazing (it's getting there), he's being hailed as the new hero at Apple.
But skeuomorphism (sp?), that's a tough one.....
I'm just stating the obvious, sounds to me, it is fact, Hmm, but I thought it was your opinion.
It did not read like that to many of us.
Let's see how successful he'll be without Apple.
Look at his previous role, very successful, so why would he not be successful, please explain. Many Exec get 'fired' and they are still very successful in future, e.g. Steve Jobs!
These are comments and other people have just corrected your opinions. Maybe you should look at yourself and say "I have given opinions, which lack substance and been corrected by my peers and not to take those comments personal'
Just a Thought.
Waits for the idiot(s) to say I hope he comes back to save iOS 7....
hahaha. You should go on the macrumors thread. It's loaded with them.
The reason I quit macrumors...
I sure do expect to see him somewhere at the top very soon... He stagnated and got arrogant, but is a brilliant mind...!
If you had used "it seems to me" in your previously certain statements that "nobody wants Scott Forstall" it might have come across as an opinion. although it still wouldn't have been true.
I bet he is turning down CEO offers every week.
Yah. Because Jony Ive is a design genius who can design anything and do no wrong.
Enjoy your black and white world. That’s not at all what he said or implied; don’t pretend it is.
So before iOS entirely, then, since that was never the case here.
Then don’t present your point as though it’s a supposition of fact. What’s the point of having a conversation if you don’t care about the truth?
Really? mdriftmeyer would like a word.

Congrats, you've pushed me off the site. I don't come here for personal attacks, even if it's based on opinion or false information.
Oh I kid I kid. I'll still come to this site. Might not post anymore though.
Only time will tell.

Firing him was the worse possible decision that Apple could have made.
