On Bob Mansfield’s Move ➝

John Gruber on Apple’s statement regarding Bob Mansfield’s removal from Apple’s executive team:

After asking around, word on the Cupertino street is that there’s nothing to read between the lines regarding Bob Mansfield no longer being on Apple’s executive team. Apple’s statement means exactly what it says — Mansfield is well-liked at all levels within the company and truly is working on special projects (read: new products).

I’m happy to hear there isn’t any backstage politics to worry about. Bob Mansfield is still at Apple and, seemingly, isn’t leaving any time soon.

Mark Papermaster Leaves Apple ➝

Miguel Helft, reporting for the New York Times:.

Mark Papermaster, the Apple executive in charge of hardware for the company’s flagship iPhone, has left the company in the wake of widely reported problems with the antenna of the recently introduced iPhone 4.

It is not clear if Mr. Papermaster was ousted or left on his own accord.

The word on the street is that he was fired. Not surprisingly, senior vice president of Macintosh hardware engineering, Bob Mansfield, will be taking over his responsibilities.
