Have a look at this article about Apple's (former) iPhone chief, Mark Papermaster. Apparently he left the company or was canned. I'm guessing he was canned due to the antenna issue with the iPhone 4. That's just speculation mind you.

Here's another story from Engadget with a bit more "inside info:"

Papermaster ? Presumably another Middle European name that went through the mincer at Ellis Island. Wonder if his wife is called Papermate -- or obese kid, Paperweight.

Indeed. Apparently he just wasn't in step with the executive culture at Apple. After all, he did come from IBM, whose culture I would assume is a bit more "standard" in comparison to Apple.

And yeah...I wondered what in the heck kind of a name is Papermaster... Wonder if it is trademarked or something?
