By Todd
Apple just announced that 25-year IBM vet Mark Papermaster will start work as head of hardware engineering for the iPhone and iPod effort on April 24. According to Apple, Papermaster and IBM have settled the legal spat that occurred when Big Blue sued him for violating the non-compete clause of his contract in taking the job with Apple late last year. No details on the terms of the settlement were announced, and Apple spokesman Steve Dowling didn’t comment as to whether the settlement will limit what Papermaster can do for Apple. Here is the full release:
