Apple yesterday announced:
Apple Computer Inc. has named Tim Cook, the company’s executive vice president of worldwide sales and operations since 2002, as chief operating officer, while Jon Rubinstein, head of the iPod division, will soon retire, the company said Friday.
Now hmm, Jon Rubinstein is stepping down. This made me curious, because on the conference call Tuesday, I heard something that made me say in IRC, “Someone is getting a memo!” Some memo that is. Listen to this segment of the conference call and see if you agree that Jon got much more than a memo.
