Apple Anoints New "Dear Leader" of iPhone Software

New Apple VP of iPhone Software

On the eve of WWDC, Apple Benevolent Dictator Steven P. Jobs has anointed a new iPhone Software Development executive, Scott Forstall:

Reporting directly to the CEO, Forstall leads the team responsible for delivering the software at the heart of Apple's revolutionary iPhone including the user interface, applications, frameworks and the operating system. Forstall joined Apple in 1997 and is one of the original architects of Mac OS X and its Aqua user interface. He was responsible for several releases of the operating system, most notably Mac OS X Leopard. Prior to Apple he worked at NeXT developing core technologies.

iPhones everywhere have wirelessly transmitted their unbricking awe and fealty to their new and beloved Dear Leader. Long may he code.
