Well, the one on the right was on the left, and the one in the middle was on the right, and the one on the left was in the middle, and the guy in the rear used to work for IBM

Lots of job changes yesterday:
  • Tony Fadell left Apple. Fadell was the first member of the iPod engineering team and most recently ran the iPod product line.
  • According to CNET, Fadell is to be replaced by Mark Papermaster from IBM, but IBM is enforcing a non-competition clause in its employment contract with Papermaster, and is suing Apple to keep it from getting trade secrets related to IBM's Power chips and server products. What Power chips and servers have to do with portable media players is anyone's guess.
  • George Kliavkoff, who's been NBC Universal's Chief Digital Officer for the last two years and oversaw NBC's participation in Hulu, the company's online Olympics activities and the growth of NBC.com and the company's other digital properties, is leaving the company to go do something else.
