If you’re going to leave, leave. But don’t go around bitching about us.

See this sad blog post where an engineer who just left Apple after 16 years says he doesn’t like the way we manage our public image. Money quote: “Ever since the return of Steve Jobs, the company has been pretty maniacal about micro-managing its visible face, to make it as smooth and featureless as an iPod’s backside. (In my darker moments I’ve compared it to the brutal whiteness of “THX-1138”.) It’s deeply ironic: For a company that famously celebrates individuality and Thinking Different, Apple has in the past decade kept its image remarkably impersonal.

Fear not. Moshe has been dispatched.
