Today's Above Avalon email includes the following stories: 

  • The Scott Forstall Interview
  • An Apple with Scott Forstall
  • Apple's War on Leakers

We kick off today's email by discussing Scott Forstall's first public comments about his time at Apple since being fired by Tim Cook in 2012. Forstall, former SVP of iOS Software, had a few things to say about iPhone development during an interview with John Markoff at the Computer History Museum. The discussion then turns to my view on what would happen if Scott Forstall ever returned to Apple in a position of significant power. We look at Apple's culture, Forstall's motivation, and his relationships with other Apple executives. The email concludes with a closer look at The Outline's report detailing Apple's war on product leakers. There were a number of interesting tidbits regarding Apple product leaks discussed in the piece.
