"Mark Papermaster, whom Apple had such a hard time wresting from IBM in 2008"

Can't see the balloons?

Cisco not having over-inflated ego's? Perhaps not in their darkened private engineering labs, but the public facing engineers, plus the S&M people (Sales and Marketing) that I've ever met do good impressions of Bobble head characters.


only thing dodgy is yet another false story.

Papermaster didn't take any "flak" for a dodgy antenna until after he was let go, where you media types decided it was a case of "taking the wrap" when in fact the guy was just let go because he didn't fit in...

the Antenna was never dodgy in the first place, even today, there has never been a patch released for it... BECAUSE IT WORKS THE WAY IT IS SUPPOSED TO..... and gets better reception than all the iPhones before it...

it is really disgusting the way you people disrespect history... taking the "flak" indeed... geesh come on, show some respect. go look for a single article that pointed to him, BEFORE he was let go... not even you people who make up false stories said anything about him, and Apple never said the antenna was a problem in the first place, and by golly people are using the phones just fine now... what exactly changed? NOTHING.... just the media lying dolts who decided to flog some other false story...
