My colleague David Morgenstern today noted that the number of employees at Apple rose about 50 percent during the past year, according to the company’s 10K report
- Tony Fadell, Apple's outgoing SVP of the iPod division, will receive a salary of US$300,000 dollars per year from Apple for consulting. Nice work if you can get it.
- Apple spent US$11M on Snow Leopard development in 2008.
- Apple has dropped Agere and Ambit from their official supplier list.
- Apple received US$207M in goodwill payments of Apple in fiscal year 2008, while in 2007 and 2006 they received only US$38 million.
