Xbox Exec Leaves Microsoft...For Apple
Richard Teversham put in 15 solid years at Microsoft, and he most recently led the company's Xbox business unit in Europe. This week, it was announced that he'll be departing in order to take a job at Apple's European offices, enabling him to finally own an iMac and iPhone without fear of backlash. It's still a bit unclear what he'll be doing at Apple, but early reports suggest that it will be some sort of educational role. Microsoft has already started looking for a replacement, but there's been no public announcement made about the details of that process.
One thing's for sure -- he better hope this Apple gig pans out. Going from Microsoft to Apple is about as traitor-esque as you can get in the employment world. Good luck over there, Mr. Teversham...better stock up on black collarneck shirts and blue jeans!
