The longtime insider will be tasked with catching rivals in the mobile devices arena and offering more software and services over the Internet.

A group led by investor Chris Hansen has a deal to buy the team. Hansen hoped to move the franchise to Seattle and rename it the SuperSonics. The original Sonics were moved to Oklahoma City in 2008 and were renamed the Thunder.
The Kings are staying in Sacramento, and Seattle will have to wait for another NBA franchise.
If the NBA Board of Governors denies the pending sale and relocation of the Sacramento Kings, the Seattle group seeking to purchase the franchise has a backup deal with the Maloof family.
Here they stay, for now.
The recommendation has been made, the vote is set and the Sacramento Kings seem all but assured of staying in California's capital city.
Here they stay.
A recommendation on the Kings' sale and possible move to Seattle could be issued as soon as next week and a final decision made early next month, ending a process NBA Commissioner David Stern called the most "wrenching" of his career.
