''Apple hiring Sony VAIO engineers for Intel-based PowerBook''

Posted on Monday, August 01 2005 @ 09:52:24 CEST by

Engadget wrote Apple has hired ex-Sony VAIO engineers to develop an Intel-based PowerBook. The Apple team is rumoured to have had some problems designing light and thin Intel-based notebooks so they needed to call in some help.
And how are they going to do that? By poaching from Sony apparently, by hiring a headhunting firm in Japan which has been trying to recruit as many current Sony VAIO and ex-Sony VAIO engineers as they can in order to have a team in place as soon as possible.

Sounds a little crazy, but it wouldn’t be the first time that Apple’s turned to Sony for assistance — you might recall that they had Sony help them design the very first PowerBook way back in 1991.
The first Intel-based PowerBook is slated for 2006.
