But it’s news now because Mary Jo Foley (aka the “unblinking eye on Microsoft”) just found out about it. Money quote: “Scott Di Valerio quietly left Microsoft at the very end of October and has resurfaced at Lenovo. Redmond Channel Partner reported on Di Valerio’s career moves in early November, but I missed their story.” Guess the “unblinking eye” must have blinked. Hilarious. And very reassuring to know that this is where Ms. Foley gets her story ideas.
No word on why Lenovo wanted to hire the former head of OEM relations at Lenovo. First dibs on Vista patches? Much love to John for the tip.
