Apple nixes Starck claim of work on 'revolutionary' project

Noted French designer gets his 15 minutes of fame setting the blogosphere ablaze with a big tease that seems to go nowhere.

Back during my army days, there was a popular adage to the effect of: those who know don't talk and those who talk, don't know. Which brings us to the case of one noted French designer by the name of Philippe Starck. Earlier today, Moniseur Starck set the blogosphere abuzz after he told a French radio station that he was working on a hush-hush project with Apple that would result in a 'revolutionary' product that would likely debut within eight months.

Wow.

He also said that he had met with the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs once a month for seven years and that he continues to travel there to see Jobs' widow Laurene Powell. /p>

Double wow.

Just one problem: Apple says that it's not working on anything with Starck. John Paczkowski of AllThingsD notes that before he died, Jobs was working with Starck on a yacht. Might this be the 'revolutionary' project he was talking about? Peut-etre.

Or not.
