Under the terms, Rubinstein will make himself available for consulting for up to 20 percent of general weekly business hours, or one business day per week on average, until April 16, 2007.

Apple noted that the agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the expiration of the term upon mutual written agreement of the parties.
