Apple Beefs Up Indoor Positioning Team with Wifarer CEO
Wifarer CEO and co-founder Philip Stanger has left his position at the company he founded to join Apple in a leadership role, reports TechCrunch. Stanger was hired individually and not as part of a larger acquisition of the Wifarer company.
Stanger recently updated his LinkedIn profile to reflect his new job at the Cupertino company, while at the same time, the leadership page detailing the executive team at Wifarer has been removed from the company's website. Wifarer is known for its indoor positioning system (IPS) technology, which debuted first for Android and more recently for iOS.
The company's technology uses existing Wi-Fi networks, iBeacons, or the company's own Bluetooh LE beacons to accurately locate customers when they are moving through an indoor venue. Apple apparently hired Stanger for his expertise in this area and either did not want Wifarer's technology or was unable to negotiate a deal acceptable to both parties. TechCrunch notes, however, that Stanger's background does not appear to be technical, making it unclear what role he will play at Apple.

So drones can deliver payloads to intended targets precisely as seen through walls when the target is illuminated from behind by of wifi, Bluetooth or other radio waves! Makes me feel REAL safe!
