It's an Apple executive shakedown, and all sorts of fruit is falling off the tree!

Find out what the departure of long time exectutive Scott Forstall and the just-hired John Browett means for iOS, OS X, Apple stores, and all the great Apple products you love.  Plus, Jony Ive's about to get even more design control over all the Macs you love to own, but is that a good thing?
