Mark Papermaster is no longer with Apple
It’s all over the tech news, Mark Papermaster is no longer with Apple. Mark was the Senior Vice President of Devices Hardware Engineering. Everyone is asking was he fired, did he walk? There has been no official announcement confimation so far.
It is rumoured that Steve Jobs lost confidence in Mark and that he felt he did not fit in at the top nor had the vision or creativity required to be at the top of Apple. Of course this is just speculation. Let’s not forget that Mark also would have played a heavy role in the production of the iPhone 4 hardware and it is also rumoured that he was the one responsible for the iPhone 4 Antenna issue.
I am sure that it is going to come out soon, but lets face it. He was fired.
