A new hire, a familiar eye.

As reported in Macworld, the top designer at Segway, Doug Field, has been hired away to take a VP of Product Design post at Apple.

Surprise? Not if you've seen Eve in "Wall-E", the latest Pixar film. Notice that gentle forward lean. Poetry in motion. Nice coupling.

Could this be a step in freeing up Jonny Ive to move up into a new Svengali-in-waiting position, answering the "Who will succeed Steve" question?
