That awkward moment where your company’s new VP literally steamrolled your company’s most popular product because of a business decision your company made that affected his old company. Such is the tale of former Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch, who just joined Apple after spending much of the past few years publicly bashing Apple’s stance on Flash.

No, this guy isn’t going to fix your iPad. In fact, his shop had to change its name because they were getting inundated with support calls. Seriously. “Over the last 12 months I have been inundated with calls and it has reached as many as 25 a week,” the British shop’s owner, Geoff Fisher, told a local newspaper.

How Google is subverting Apple through the iPhone’s app store

usnews:

Over the past six months, Google has begun to systematically replace core, Apple-made iOS apps with Google-made iOS apps. In July, Google launched Chrome for iPhone – a Safari replacement. Then, in October came Google Search – which included a voice search feature to compete with Siri. In December, Google launched Google Maps to replace Apple Maps, and a much-improved Gmail to replace Apple’s core Mail app. It also put out a new YouTube app, to replace the one that Apple removed during its last iOS upgrade.

In a way, Apple shot itself in the foot because, by dropping Google’s apps, they effectively allowed Google to prove is better at iOS app development than they are. (Barring the Gmail app, but that’s a different story.)

Expect iOS7 to have an updated design philosophy, because it’s beginning to feel dated now that developers are increasingly outpacing Apple itself at app design.

Apple, sliced: Tim Cook took a 99% pay cut in 2012

  • $376M the amount Apple CEO Tim Cook took home in 2011, buoyed by massive stock options. Cook will receive two further stock options in 2016 and 2021.
  • $4.17M the amount Cook took home in 2012, which is fairly low for a CEO of his stature (he must be starving), though far higher than the $1 paychecks which Steve Jobs was famous for. source
