今天的问题MDJreported that Tim Bucher — who took over Apple’s Macintosh hardware engineering division六个月前when Jon Rubinstein was put in charge of the brand-new iPod division — is no longer employed by Apple根据MDJ的独家报道：
This week, without warning, Apple’s hardware engineering group was told that Bucher had left the companyNo reason was supplied, but Bucher is so far gone that Apple’s infrastructure no longer lists him even as an employee.
According to MDJ, no successor has been named, nor was the reason for Bucher’s departure announced.
Not only has this not been reported anywhere other than MDJ, but it hasn’t even been announced outside Apple’s hardware division.
A friend who works as a software engineer at Apple told me that (a) the first he heard of this story was when he saw me mention MDJ’s report in my链接列表RSS feed, and (b) that at least as of this writing, Bucher是in fact still listed in the company directory, contrary to the “so far gone” part of MDJ’s report.
如果Apple的任何人愿意澄清这一点或添加到故事中，let me know当然，保密性是有保证的。
