Which Tech Company Should Hire Scott Forstall? [Let's Talk]
Even though he was fired from Apple yesterday, Scott Forstall will still be an Apple employee until some point in 2013 while working as an advisor to Tim Cook. His new position is really just to prevent him from jumping ship quickly and going to another company, but Apple can't keep him forever. At some point in 2013, Scott Forstall will be free to join any company he chooses. So which company should he go to?
Forstall's brother works for Microsoft, but Scott's penchant for skeuomorphic software might not fit well with Microsoft's Metro UI. Google and Samsung are two other obvious choices because they're big competitors with Apple. Or Forstall could choose to create his own company like Tony Fadell did with Nest after he left Apple. What company do you think would be the best fit for Scott?
