LEADING EDGE gaming notebook architect, Rahul Sood, the founder of the luxury gamer-oriented PC firm VoodooPC, apparently has decided to take Microsoft's silver and join it.
Sood announced his new position on his blog and said he was happy to sign up at the Vole.
"Well, it's probably time I let the cat out of the bag. I am happy to announce that I'll be joining Microsoft as the GM for System Experience in the Interactive Entertainment Business," he said.
Apparently being general manager for systems experience at Microsoft is a very exciting job with plenty of opportunity for fun. However, Sood drew the line at actually discussing what that might involve.
Sood enthused, "I'll be working on some really....really...really cool stuff come January 2011." He added, "If you need to get in touch with me feel free to find me on Facebook or Twitter. I may or may not attend CES, but if you have something really cool to show let me know soon!"
VoodooPC was bought out by HP back in 2006, and Sood worked there as its gaming business CTO until last month. It's safe to say that he was a wiz at design so there will be plenty of speculation as to what he'll get up to at his new digs in Redmond.
