    unless he left on his own accord.

    But wow he must have gotten quite a heckling to leave so soon after joining, especially all the red tape Apple went through to get him on board. Even at the estimate $175 million cost for the bumper program I would honestly think "Papermaster" would be worth more to Apple but I guess not.

    What an awesome name to have.

    I wonder if IBM will offer him his job back.

    Um. Getting canned and leaving because you're forced to is the same thing. But if semantics is your game :rolleyes:

    I don't really think he should have been fired if it was indeed because of the antenna thing.

    Despite the bad press and even counting the cost of the bumpers, this is still by *FAR* Apples best selling phone.

    And before you call me a fanboy - I do have the antenna problem and find it quite annoying. But look at the facts - this is a highly successful phone.
