Yes, because nobody important ever left Apple when Steve was CEO of Apple.
These are just a few of the big names that have all left Apple under Steve's wing, most of them being related with the Mac side. I'm so tired of this Tim Cook shit people keep spewing out.
What really big names have left Apple since Tim was here? Scott Forstall was fired, so he doesn't count.
I know 3 out of 5 of them personally. None of them were involved with the actual making of the products directly, whether hardware, software or what have you. They were leaders in directing and focusing teams to meet goals.
Bertrand is a great guy. He hadn't been knee deep in coding for nearly 15 years. Rubenstein never wrote code and his expertise of working with hardware was in the past. Sina worked in branding, marketing and non tech related relations. He was one of the first guys we contacted to come back during the merger. He had bailed on NeXT and professional services prior to the merger.
There is plenty of talent at Apple. If someone wants to leave to get a huge pay day and a title they've been pining over, let them go. They'll discover the experience never pans out.
Thanks for running through who these people are for those that don't know. I just didn't want to run my post out.
People always come and go with every company no matter who or how important you are (or think you are). We all have to remember these are changing times too and sometimes the people who were great at Apple maybe aren't so great for what's coming down the road. So Apple has also hired some pretty great people these last few months.

He gives himself way too much credit.
People may be leaving but there are people coming on board too. Off the top of my head I know there's been two major fashion executives (Deneve and Ahrendts) as well as Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre rumored to be joining the Apple executive team as well.
Wow. Comparing these "business suits" with the actual creators of Apple core technologies? Yikes!
I wish I could think of some positive way to spin this situation, but I just can't.
What you should be concerned about is that you may actually believe your "Tim Cook Dropped Ball, thus Apple Doomed" propaganda nonsense.So lets recap the famous quotes from armchair whiners like you:Tim Cook dropping ball again.Apple is doomed.Steve Jobs would never do this.Apple lost their innovation since Steve Jobs died.Apple is in decline because they don't sell cheap junk.Care to add more?
Sure. "Apple just lost one (more) of the creators of some of it's most important technology."
Difference between your listed items and mine, is that your's are BS and mine is real.
I guess it can be natural to have your fill of working for one company, but... Facebook? What is he going to do, design animations of byzantine security controls that change on a weekly basis? I hope the money's good.

Some of the most interesting and talented people I know would be dismissed as hobos by the superficial members of society. Some people live life on the surface, others are more interested in what lies beneath. I'm one of the latter. Sounds like Apple lost a talented developer.
Name names, pls.
If the last two quarters are an indication that Tim Cook is "dropping the ball", I hope it stays on the floor.
$$$$$ . . . and from all the right products.
The two of you are talking about completely different things. Issues such as retention of key management won't show up over the shorter term on quarterly reports, but I still think his comment really misses the mark. Not everyone wants to spend their entire career at one company, so I would say it's more important to look at their ability to replenish both talent and management. He tried to portray it as a sinking ship, yet listing off people who left in recent years without further context and supporting information is just disingenuous.
Shiny happy people everywhere right? If I were looking to hire a talented developer, I could care less about whether they were smiling in their profile pic. I'd rather find someone with knowledge, talent, and ambition who didn't smile, than one who did and was trying to cover up the fact that they didn't know anything. Be real.
Give him some time at his new job and I'm sure his smile will come back. /s
A fashion accessory manufacturer doesn't need deep techies.
You can't find any value in Facebook because there is none in it for you. You are the product to be sold.
He must be someone important. That was my first thought when I saw his LinkedIn pic showing himself all disheveled and unkept. I guess if one is really that good, they don't care how he keeps himself since he'll probably be working more-or-less on his own, at home, to not care.Take some pride in your appearance buddy
The term "Unix beard" was coined for a reason.
So, he's been gone from Apple for a year, how did Apple ever survive the last 12 months?
Making a tiny effort not to look depressed in a cover photo means you're "covering up the fact that you don't know anything"? Really? Thanks for the incredible insight.
My obvious point that having a good attitude, smiling, and not being a downer is a POSITIVE, not a negative, in addition to any skills and knowledge. I know those things make a big fucking difference in terms of the work place.
