Apple today announced that Mark Papermaster is joining the Company as senior vice president of Devices Hardware Engineering, reporting to Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Papermaster, who comes to Apple from IBM, will lead Apple’s iPod and iPhone hardware engineering teams. Papermaster has 25 years of product and technology experience, and was previously a vice president at IBM.

Apple also announced that Tony Fadell, Apple’s senior vice president of the iPod Division, and his wife Danielle Lambert, vice president of Human Resources, are reducing their roles within the company as they devote more time to their young family. Fadell will remain at Apple as an advisor to the CEO. Lambert will depart the company at the end of this year after a successor is in place.

“Mark is a seasoned leader and is going to be an excellent addition to our senior management team,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Tony and Dani have each made important contributions to Apple over the past eight years. We’re sorry to see Dani go, and are looking forward to working with Tony in his new capacity.”

Papermaster has a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Texas, and Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Vermont in 1988. He is active with the University of Texas where he is a member of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Advisory Council.

  1. Translation:

    Tony and Dani worked their arses off, delivered shareholder value, and were well compensated for their talents.

    Fearing having their wealth “shared around” they have wisely cashed in before jack-booted Obama revenue agents redistribute their money to those are lifelong sucklers of the government teat.

    /end rant

  2. So it’s all good when the middle class gets the brunt of the load huh? Yet when anyone mentions that the wealthy have to put in their fair share of the load by saying goodbye to their tax breaks so they contribute the same as everyone else, people start bitching around. Who gives a crap about the wealthy having to give up a few more bucks, they have more than enough. No one gives a crap that the middle class who need the money more than the wealthy have to make a bigger sacrifice for the good of all. Where’s the fairness in that?

  3. Umm … rwr … do I really need to point out that it is the conservatives – the fascists, the dictators, the Religious Right – who are big on jack-boots? The limp-wristed liberals are better known for loafers, or even moccasins.
    Additionally, income taxes are only paid on current income, not income in past years. Thus, previous years earnings are safe from taxation.
    Still … it’s good you are getting your ignorant hate-mongering out of your system today – it won’t matter tomorrow. Should we enter this in iCal to be re-visited in a year or two? Or would that embarrass you and force you to invent new “atrocities” (also described in terms better suited to conservatives) that he is/will be up to?

  4. It’s disconcerting to see how many voices of anger and/or hate are coming out of the Right”, and how there are so many voices of hope coming out of the “Left.”

    I would encourage those who feel deep anger about this election to go off and do some prolonged soul searching.

    If you are an American, you should consider that a responsibility, as well as a privilege.
