Less than a week after being fired as Yahoo's CEO, Carol Bartz has also resigned from the company's Board of Directors.

Carol Bartz, who has just been fired as Yahoo’s CEO last Tuesday, has also left her seat on the company’s board of directors. As noted by spokesperson, Charles Sipkin,s in an e-mail on Sunday: “On September 9, 2011, Carol Bartz resigned from the Board of Directors of Yahoo! Inc. effective immediately.”

Carol Bartz’s role as CEO ended last week when she was ousted from the position she had occupied for three years. After being fired, she conducted an interview with Fortune wherein she pointed out that she has no plans of leaving Yahoo’s board — a statement which contradicts Mr. Sipkins’ report. On the same interview, she called Yahoo’s board members as “doofuses” who “f**ked me over”.

According to some sources close to the company, Carol Bartz’s last day on Yahoo’s board was Friday.

Fortune’s ‘Inside Apple’ Shows a Furious Steve Jobs After MobileMe Launch

"You've tarnished Apple's reputation... You should hate each other for having let each other down... Mossberg, our friend, is no longer writing good things about us." --- Steve Jobs, CEO, Apple Inc.

As summarized by Business Insider: Steve Jobs assembled the team that created MobileMe following its launch, and after receiving poor review from Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg. With raging frustration due to MobileMe’s failure, the Apple CEO is said to have named a new executive-in-charge for the service. Fortune’s author, Adam Lashinsky, also reported that the original MobileMe team was disbanded.

Introduced in June 2009 as a successor for .Mac, the MobileMe ‘push’ service includes Web-based applications like mail, contact and calendar. However, the service got a rocky start, and Apple apologized for the multitude of problems that occurred in the service. In addition to that, the company offered a free 30-day trial subscription.

This year though, Apple is believed to introduce MobileMe’s successor — the iCloud. The soon-to-debut Internet cloud service will provide music streaming and enhanced sync capabilities between connected devices. Will the iCloud ever be able to redeem Apple’s tarnished reputation?
