    Federighi is the muscle, Cue the nerves, Oppenheimer the blood, Riccio the bones and Mansfield the liver.

    Good analysis you’ve linked to. I think this shakeup was executed with surgical precision and its going to be very interesting to see what results but it ultimately amounts to a better, more organized and integrated approach to Apple products. And who can complain about the opportunity to see more of “Hair Force One” at Apple Events?
