I predict a large increase of torrent users, and 4K/x265torrents of this content. Just like CBS is pushing all Trekkers to torrents, with their attempt to force subscriptions to their loser service, so will Disney cause the same paradigm shift - particularly since The Pirate Bay now allows direct streaming of content.

Ive really likes Apple and doesn't want to leave Apple behind and join another company to do their design work for them. But he likes the idea of doing other projects other than Apple.So he "leaves" Apple and starts his own independent design company. Apple remains a major client, so Ive technically still works for Apple, but he can also work for others as he sees fit. Apple gets to keep Ive and Ive get to do other stuff as well. Seems like a win all around.
To address this - this whole scenario is the equivalent of a company letting an employee go, promising him work as a consultant, throwing them 1-2 bones, and then simply severing ties.
All around, this allows everyone to save face, Jony to ride off into the sunset, and Cook to hopefully, finally, fix most of the mess Jony has left behind, with new and better human interface design teams.
... and then there's the typical apologists that always have 'explanations' for Apple's pure marketing/greed driven motivations.
