“Google and Apple continue to find themselves on opposite sides of the world, as Google has apparently agreed to buy a chip-design start-up populated by former Apple employees,” Tom Krazit reports for CNET.
“Thomson Reuters’ PEHub reported Tuesday that Agnilux, a stealth chip start-up in San Jose, Calif., is Google’s latest acquisition,” Krazit reports. “A company spokesman confirmed [the deal]… Little is known about Agnilux other than the fact that it was founded by former employees of P.A. Semi, the chip start-up Apple bought in 2008.”
Krazit reports, “The New York Times attempted to track down details about the company in February and didn’t get very far, but was able to confirm that several former P.A. Semi and Apple employees were among the co-founders, as well as Scott Redman, a former software architect at TiVo.”
