Apple's e-commerce exec goes to eBay in new Chief Product Officer role

RJ Pittman goes to eBay
Working in the e-commerce business, I found this very interesting.  RJ Pittman is leaving Apple to join eBay in a new job they created called Chief Product Officer.  At Apple he was in charge of their e-commerce platform.

This news comes just 3 days after Apple announced a new SVP that will take over both Retail and Online Stores.  A move that makes perfect sense as it's an essential move towards a full omni channel play that can deliver a completely seamless customer experience merging the physical and virtual worlds.

Although maybe a coincidence, it certainly seems like if it wasn't, it was inevitable.  See the MacRumors and AllThingsD articles for more details.
