Apple has removed the biography of its future iPhone leader from the company Web site.
You can still find Apple's press release from last week announcing the hiring of Mark Papermaster on the site, but the brief bio once posted among those of Apple's other senior executives disappeared Monday. It's visible through the magic of Google's caching technology, should you want a look.
