Apple Acknowledges Siri Leadership Has Officially Moved From Eddy Cue To Craig Federighi (macrumors.com) 52

An anonymous reader shares a report: Apple has updated its executive leadership page to acknowledge that software engineering chief Craig Federighi now officially oversees development of Siri. The responsibility previously belonged to Apple's services chief Eddy Cue. "Craig Federighi is Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering, reporting to CEO Tim Cook. Craig oversees the development of iOS, macOS, and Siri. His teams are responsible for delivering the software at the heart of Apple's innovative products, including the user interface, applications and frameworks," Apple says. Apple's leadership page is only now reflecting Federighi's role as head of Siri, but the transition has been apparent for several months, based on recent interviews and stage appearances at Apple's keynotes.

    because I think I speak for MILLIONS of people when I say I give a massively huge shit about who gives the orders to the people who actually do the hard work for can-not-live-without features like Siri.

      You should learn more about who Craig Federighi [wikipedia.org] is. He's extremely accomplished in the field of software development.

      But more importantly, he's widely considered to be one of the most beautiful people in the computing industry today. You can see a photo of him here. [apple.com] He's got a strong, manly look that other men respect. But he's also got that sophisticated, yet tough, appearance that women adore. The combination of his great physical appearance, his confidence, and his knowledge of the craft make him a powerhouse in the world of software development.

      I think you'd have to mix at least Linus Torvalds, Bjarne Stroustrup, Donald Knuth, Dwayne Johnson, and George Clooney together to get a man as strong, good-looking, confident and well-rounded as Craig Federighi is.

        As well rounded as apple's rounded corners?

    Whoa, Apple has formally handed control of Siri to the Ferengi?!
  • I heard the real reason for the change is that Siri was found having an affair with Alexa, and it may have been filmed by Cortana.
