Churchill Club Presents: Wireless Is the Biggest Tech Platform in History. Now What?

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) - The Churchill Club, Silicon Valley's premier business and technology forum, today announced its evening event on November 30 titled Wireless is the Biggest Tech Platform in History. Now What? 

Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs predicted a decade ago that wireless would have far greater impact than the wired Internet and he remains intent on leveraging the power of mobile to redefine computing, health care, education, social media, commerce and more. Qualcomm is now shipping about a million wireless semiconductors daily, making it the world's #1 supplier of chipsets for the mobile industry.

Former chairman and CEO of Palm turned HP executive Jon Rubinstein was instrumental in developing Palm's webOS platform and the Palm Pre smart phone. At Apple he was a driving force behind the creation of the iPod, the disruptive device that changed the way we buy and transport our music. He also led the Apple team that built the original iMac, the personal computer that revitalized Apple and revolutionized personal computer design.

Join the conversation with Jacobs and Rubinstein led by Kara Swisher of the D Conference and AllThingsD.com
