Apple promotes Eddy Cue to SVP of Internet Software and Services

Apple promoted Eddy to the “i-Man”

Tim Cook have just promoted Eddy Cue to Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services. Eddy Cue is no newbie, he is the key man for iTunes, App Store and iBookstore. These few products are very successful and I feel is the key to the success of iPhone and iPad.

So what’s new for him as SVP of Internet Software and Service? iCloud and iAds. Both of the 2 services are fairly new, and haven’t really taken off. I’m sure this 2 services are also the key services that Apple will be focusing on for the next few years.

Here a email from Tim Cook to Apple’s employee obtained by 9to5mac:

Dear team,

It is my pleasure to announce the promotion of Eddy Cue to Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services. Eddy will report to me and will serve on Apple’s executive management team. Eddy oversees Apple’s industry-leading content stores including the iTunes Store, the revolutionary App Store and the iBookstore, as well as iAd and Apple’s innovative iCloud services. He is a 22-year Apple veteran and leads a large organization of amazing people. He played a major role in creating the Apple online store in 1998, the iTunes Music Store in 2003 and the App Store in 2008.

Apple is a company and culture unlike any other in the world and leaders like Eddy get that. Apple is in their blood. Eddy and the entire executive management team are dedicated to making the best products in the world that delight our customers and make our employees incredibly proud of what they do. Please join me in congratulating Eddy on this significant and well-deserved promotion. I have worked with Eddy for many years and look forward to working with him even closer in the future.





Apple Published 6 free iBooks for Developers!

Apple have published 6 free iBooks in iBooks Stores for Developers! The quality of the iBooks seems to be top-notched. It looks like how iBooks should be.

Although the books mainly attracts developers, but it seems to be a good first step for them to push the iBooks Store, and a good place for interested developers to start learning and developing for iOS. The titles are namely: iOS Application Programming, iOS Technology Overview, iOS Human Interface Guidelines, Object Orientated Programming with Objective-C, The Objective-C Programming Language and Cocoa Fundamental’s Guide.

You can download the eBooks from iBooks Store on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Although I hope iBookStore will be coming to the Mac soon! Would love reading on my Mac too!
