This is great for Johnson and in all honesty it shouldn’t change a thing for Apple. Johnson did a great job for Apple, but Apple’s retail strategy is not only very mature it is also very sound at this point.

My guess is that Johnson felt there wasn’t much left for him to do at Apple — but that’s pure speculation.

What isn’t speculation: he has a ton of work to do for J.C. Penny, a ton.
