I'm guessing apple is able to separate a persons skills as a CTO from his announcements and statements as a company CTO.

What, you think Apple's going to hire a guy that bad-mouths the products and services his company offers? They need people that can withstand the flames of the competition. Hell, Apple faces harsh criticisms about their products each and every day, from the competition to the everyday consumer.

It's just like debate really, where they give you a topic to be either for or against, except you get paid.

I'm just wondering if he will push for Adobe and Apple to make up and push for flash integration now... you know since he thought it was so great...

This.

Seriously? He's not at adobe any more. If he "pushes" for adobe for 2 seconds he's fired. Why would any employee, regardless of their previous experience, champion for the competitor?


Why is this even a thread?!
