Apple SVP Bob Mansfield Leaving Exec Team; Will Work on 'Special Projects' Reporting to Tim Cook [Updated]
Apple Senior Vice President Bob Mansfield has been removed from Apple's Leadership website in the past 24 hours with no explanation.
Update: According to AllThingsD:
His page has been completely removed from Apple's website, though it is still visible on Google's cache.
Last year, Apple announced that Mansfield would be retiring, but several months later announced he would instead be staying at the company. Later, it leaked that Tim Cook had faced an "insurrection" after Mansfield announced his retirement, and Cook gave him an extremely generous benefits package.
At the time, it was reported that Mansfield had committed to stay at Apple through at least 2014, influenced in no small part by the departure of former iOS chief Scott Forstall.
Mansfield has been instrumental in Apple's success in recent years, overseeing the development of the very successful MacBook Air notebooks, as well as recent iPhone and iPad designs.

Fat Hands, Sharp Edges
NOW I get why the iPads' edges are so uncomfortable. This guy has fat hands, the sharp edges probably just squish in like a pillow. The edge discomfort probably never entered his mind. I have thin, large hands and those sharp edges are horrible to hold! I have to use a soft case on my iPad.
Get a thin guy in there to design an iPad EVERYONE can hold without discomfort.

Mansfield is one of my top 3 executives at Apple.
If he goes, well... ****
