Siri Co-Founder Dag Kittlaus Leaves Apple

AllThingsD reports that Siri co-founder Dag Kittlaus has left his position at Apple, moving on following the rebirth of the voice-powered personal assistant as a key feature of the iPhone 4S.
There were several reasons for the departure, which was amicable and has been planned for a while, sources said. They included Kittlaus’ family being in Chicago, a desire to take time off and an interest in brainstorming new entrepreneurial ideas.
The report claims that Kittlaus left Apple just after the iPhone 4S launch but that his departure is not indicative of a mass exodus of the Siri team, as other key former Siri executives are remaining at Apple.

Hm, stayed around for the payoff and to make sure things went as planned, then out to work on what's next?


Thankfully his family means something to him. He should spend time with them because he probably never saw them when he was co-founding and selling Siri.

//EDIT: Wow, -2 for me saying he should be with his own family???

//EDIT part deux: Thanks for the upticks! Some family men and women out there after all!

Sensible commentary is not popular in this forum. You're lucky that a few munificent souls (including me) gave you plusses.

Considering Apple bought Siri for 800,000,000 this guy can probably go do about anything he wants...


Where do you pull that number from?
