Amid a bitter stand-off with Britain-based micro-chip company Imagination Technologies, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) sent a stern message by opening an office in its proximity. The tech giant planted its flag by renting a 22,500 square-foot office in St Albans just a few miles from Imagination’s headquarters in Hertfordshire village of Kings Langley, the Telegraph reported on Saturday. The Chief Executive of Imagination, Andrew Heath had challenged Apple’s claim that it will be able to develop its own technology without infringing on Imagination’s technology.
The company plans to use the office to develop its own graphics technology for Apple devices after it announced termination of its partnership with Imagination. The development has led to fears in the Imagination camp that Apple will poach its talented staff. In recent months, Apple hired a string of Imagination employees, including its former Chief Operating Officer John Metcalfe. Imagination had earlier accused Apple of breaching ethics when the latter claimed that they would no longer need to pay royalties as they plan to stop using the Imagination graphics technology.
