Google snatched Apple's chief of quality assurance for a possible Motorola project run by Sergey Brin
The alleged corporate switch comes hot on the heels of DoJ investigation into the Silicon Valley hiring practices meant to avoid luring employees from one another, so as to keep the already stratospheric salaries where they are now.
Simon Prakash has been the quality assurance head at Apple for the last eight years, meaning that he is one of the men behind the company's award-winning fusion of design and physical execution for the whole lineup - from Macs to the iPhone.
Google has reportedly poached him to work on a special project involving the newly-acquired Motorola, under the direct supervision by none other but Google's Sergey Brin himself. What will these geniuses concoct with the help of Motorola's manufacturing facilities and skillful design stuff, remains to be seen, although judging by phones like the RAZR MAXX that stuffed 3300mAh battery into a 0.35" body, the engineering department of Motorola has a lot to offer.
