Jon Rubinstein, the former senior vice president of Apple’s iPod division, has signed on with the company as a consultant for one year. In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Apple said Rubinstein agreed to make himself available to the company for about one business day a week until April 16, 2007, for which he will be paid a non-material flat fee for his services. Apple announced last year that Rubinstein would resign at the end of March and be replaced by Tony Fadell, Apple’s vice president of iPod engineering. The company said Rubinstein’s official last day as an Apple executive was April 14, 2006.

What are they paying him in if it’s not material? It can’t be cash, or iPods. It most be LOVE.

Either that or I know nothing about business terms.
