Lala founder Bill Nguyen ditches Apple for another endeavor

updated 10:55 pm EST, Thu February 24, 2011

Subject of new work still unclear

Lala founder Bill Nguyen has reportedly stepped down from his position at Apple to pursue other endeavors. Details surrounding Nguyen's latest project remain unknown, though Business Insider cites an e-mail that claims the work will "impact culture and notions of social spheres." The entrepreneur is also said to have purchased the domain name for $350,000 late last year.

After founding the music streaming service, Nguyen temporarily joined Apple when Lala was purchased by the latter company. It is unclear how long he spent at Apple before departing back into the world of startups, though a separate report from CNET suggests one of the founders left last August.

Nguyen is expected to make an official announcement sometime in March.

    Like a rat deserting a sinking ship. Now that Steve is very sick (terminal?) Nguyen has the foresight to leave while the going is good

    they are Ballmer butt.boys who are bitter that MSFT is a dead duck while AAPL soars and has made Apple the 2nd highest valued corporation in the world behind ExxonMobil.
