Xbox strategy exec becomes Apple educator

Microsoft's Xbox strategy executive in Europe, Richard Teversham, has joined Apple. MCV reports that Teversham's core job is an "education-related role" at the corporation of iThings. The executive had been with Microsoft for 15 years and played a major role in the life of the Xbox, which may assist him in dealing with the iPhone/iPod Touch portable gaming devices. The company is currently seeking a replacement.

We'd love to tell you more about Teversham and what he did, but apparently his strategy work was deep cover. We haven't really written about the guy since 2006.
