Apple is searching for a head of Retail department



Apple stll has not found the head of Retail department, although the sales of Cupertino company are dropping for the first time in a 4-year period.

Apple's search for a replacement, handled by recruiters Egon Zehnder International, has gone slowly, people familiar with the matter said, and the company has yet to settle on a finalist after interviewing several external candidates. Among those interviewed but rejected as a poor fit were wireless and telecommunications-industry executives, one such person said. A CEO of a privately held retailer in France spurned Apple's overtures, believing it would be hard to change Apple's culture as an outsider, another person said.

Now Apple has tuned from searching inside the company to outside, as no current candidate is suitable for the post. After the firing of previous Retail sales John Browett,  CEO Tim Cook is handling the retail responsibilities. It was Browett's idea to focus Apple's retail stores on sales and cost cutting rather than on customer service. As a result, the employees were upset as well  as the customers, whose satisfaction is declining gradually. The idea seemed unreasonable and John Browett left the post after 6 months.

Wired reported yesterday that the American Civil Liberties Union was posing questions about Siri's privacy policies, citing privacy statements claiming that older "disassociated" voice input data would be retained for "period of time" even if a user turn off Siri on his or her device.

"It's not clear what 'disassociated' means. It's not clear what 'period of time' means. It's not clear what using it to 'generally improve Siri and other Apple products and services' means," says Nicole Ozer, a lawyer with the ACLU. "The only thing that's clear is we really don't know what may be happening to the personal information we have told Siri, even after we turn Siri off."
