Another good piece from Stephen Hackett. Regarding Scott Forstall, Stephen writes:
There’s almost nothing left of his [Forstall's] influence in the UI. While the APIs and behind-the-scenes technology will carry his influence for years to come, Forstall is the elephant in the room when it comes to iOS 7.
While Forstall is still underground — and there’s no word on where or when he may pop up again — Cook and company are working hard to reinforce to the public and shareholders that the call to can the software lead was the right one to make.
I'd love — note the double intensifier — to know what Forstall thinks of iOS 7. Even more fascinating would be to know what Forstall and team had planned for iOS 7 before his head met the guillotine.
