Quoting the Wall Street Journal, PCMag reports that Tony Fadell, senior vice president, iPod division, is leaving the company for "personal reasons." However, it's believed that he may stay on in a limited capacity, perhaps as a consultant.
Replacing him will be Mark Papermaster of IBM. Big Blue has sued the former top manager for violating a non-compete clause in his contract.
Given that Papermaster's expertise lies in processors and blade computing, it's somewhat puzzling that IBM is pursuing a non-compete case against him. That is, IBM doesn't make or sell personal media players and Apple doesn't make or sell blade systems.
