Rubén Caballero, who until about a year ago worked for Apple, it is passed to Microsoft. Is an engineer, hardware-executive tasks that Cupertino was working on a chip modem. Microsoft will instead the post of vice-president and, according to what is written on his profile on LinkedIn, you will devices , Mixed Reality, as the HoloLens. You will also be responsible for unspecified “special projects”.

Caballero joined Apple in 2005, and there remained until April 2019, when there was the big earthquake in the market of chip modem that is caused by the relationship between Apple, Intel, and Qualcomm. To make the story extremely short, after arguing for a few years for money matters, Apple and Qualcomm have made peace, and Intel, which Apple had folded, it has found itself without a customer. In the end Intel has closed the division modem, and bought an Apple.

This happened in April, as we were saying, but apparently Caballero, who was “famous” among fans for his role in the famous Antennagate of the iPhone 4 (it says that it was he saying to Steve Jobs that the smartphone would be able to have problems with the stability of the connection cell if challenged in a certain way), had already resigned (or was fired, no one knows) three months before.

Caballero then joined as the Chief Wireless Strategist, to Keyssa, a startup in the Silicon Valley that pushes for the elimination of the connectors for the physical transfer of data (example: USB port or Lightning connector on your smartphone) for a connector the solid state, however, based on the technology mmWave of 5G. Between this and the wireless charging a smartphone may be completely without doors, without compromising your ability to transfer high – the company is talking about transferring an HD movie in just a few seconds, and even if the person who chews a bit of encoding know that it means everything and nothing gives us at least an order of magnitude. Among other things, Keyssa is used by LG to connect the second display of the LG V the most recent, including the all-new V60.

According to his LinkedIn profile, the relationship between Caballero and Keyssa remain unchanged, as well as those with Maui Imaging, Humane Inc. and Resonant Inc.
