Thumbplay, a music subscription service, has hired Apple's Pablo Calamera as it's Chief Technological Officer. Calamera oversaw technology development for MobileMe, Apple's cloud service. It's not coincidence that Thumbplay is launching their program on the cloud through a Blackberry application on Thursday. Thumbplay will provide access to millions of songs through unlimited, on-demand access.
Thumbplay has created the CTO position just for Calamera. Sounds like Thumbplay needed someone who knew what they were doing and had experience to get them where they want to be on the cloud, and Calamera was there man.
