Apple poaches Nokia photo guru Ari Partinen from Microsoft
El Reg deciphers cam bod's cryptic-ish tweet
A Nokia camera guru has been poached by Apple in an apparent bid to beef up the fruity firm's snapper cred.
Ari Partinen, who worked on the PureView camera, announced his move on Twitter. Nokia's cameras are considered to be the best in the business, whereas Apple's aren't. Perhaps Tim Cook wants this to change.
Today will be my last day working for the amazing #Lumia family. In June I will start a new chapter in Cupertino, California. Much love!— Ari Partinen (@Partinen) May 9, 2014
For anyone who doesn't realise what that means, he then tweeted:
@bharadc23 Thank you for great discussions and feedback! (And it is the company you are thinking assuming you are thinking Apple) =)— Ari Partinen (@Partinen) May 9, 2014
We hear the weather's nice in California. ®
