Who’s On the Bridge at Apple?

All you need to know about who’s running Apple (Dan Moren, MacWorld) for CEO Tim Cook today. Keep a geek-eye on Bob Mansfield’s new Skunk Works, which owns semiconductor and wireless development. Semis are the chips that power Apple’s gadgets, and wireless is how those gadgets connect to your world.

If you’ve come to love the minimalist aesthetic of Apple’s hardware, you’re a fan of Jony Ive. He’s headed the Industrial Design group at Apple since before Steve Jobs returned to the company in 1997. Jony will now count software interface design among his responsibilities. That’s a very good thing for Apple customers.
