General Manager of Apple Computer’s Internet/on-line services business
unit. He oversaw the creation, launch, and growth of Apple’s on-line

technology and Internet services such as Salon and Youth Central. During
his 12-year tenure at Apple, Mr. Friedman’s responsibilities also
included strategy development for the complex systems market group,
