IBM And Apple Settle Differences… Mark Papermaster To Start At Apple On April 24th

Ex-IBMer Mark Papermaster who left IBM to join Apple before IBM slapped a lawsuit on him to stop that from happening, which led to Papermaster filing suit against IBM to kill their lawsuit is now going to start working full time at Apple:

Apple® today announced that Mark Papermaster will be coming to Apple as senior vice president of Devices Hardware Engineering, reporting to Apple CEO Steve Jobs, on April 24. Papermaster, who comes to Apple from IBM, will lead Apple’s iPod® and iPhone™ hardware engineering teams. The litigation between IBM and Mark Papermaster has been resolved.

I’m guessing that some cash changed hands or a deal was negotiated between the legal teams of Papermaster, IBM, and Apple’s iLawyers. In any case, it is good to see this saga resolved.
