Apple hires engineers from UK company Dialog

Apple is adding 300 computer chip engineers to its team after striking a deal to hire them from one of its British suppliers.
It is paying Dialog Semiconductor $300m (£227m) for the acquisition, which also includes some of the Reading-based company's patents and facilities.
Apple has long used Dialog's products to monitor and control power consumption in its iPhones and iPads.
The deal represents one of Apple's biggest takeovers in headcount terms.
"Dialog has deep expertise in chip development and we are thrilled to have this talented group of engineers who have long supported our products now working directly for Apple," said the handset-maker's hardware technologies chief Johny Srouji.
