Jony Ive to leave Apple

https://news.sky.com/story/british-iphone-designer-jony-ive-set-to-leave-apple-11750456

 

 

Sir Jonathan Ive, more widely known as Jony Ive is to leave Apple to set up his own venture with Apple being one of his clients.

 

Hmmmm, I wonder if Tim Cook turned down his latest pay rise request? Smiley Happy

 

 

At least this way he can write his own cheques.

Current tech used:
Nokia 5 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 2 76 Mbps Down/18 Mbps up (upgraded for homeworking),
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)

Yes you may have something there @techtamer 

It is always a problem to higher management when "your"

cheque becomes very large, they break out in spots or cold

sweats cool

@viridis @Possibly a new iOS interface will be introduced then as they won’t be able to use his designs without paying him big money

So he might have them over a barrel (of Apple Cider of course)

 

Nothing to stop him offering these back to them for a large slice of that cash pile Cook is sitting on.

It'll depend if Apple wants to pay what he wants to charge.

 

They might end up back on the ropes as they were in the 90s if they don't.
