Once again, the tech world is abuzz (well, haters aside maybe) with talk of a new Apple product that could debut in the next eight months.
French designer Philippe Starck, whose portfolio includes hotels, restaurants, and even toothbrushes, today to France Info radio that he's working with the Cupertino, Calif.-based company to create a "revolutionary" new product.
Of course, he didn't provide any additional details on what that product might be, citing Apple's "religious cult of secrecy," but Starck did say he met with the late Steve Jobs once a month for seven years to collaborate on the project and talk about "all things interesting." The designer added that he continues to travel to California to meet with Jobs' widow Laurene Powell.
Now, we wouldn't fault anyone for thinking this product might be the Hardmac, think it could be a remote control for the TV. Maybe the will get a radical makeover?, but some sites, like
Apple, for its part, has, so we're not sure if we'll actually see this revolutionary product, but hey, why should that stop us from dreaming?
That's why we want to hear from you, dear readers. We already know you're a creative bunch, so we're sure you've already dreamed up some ideas for the ultimate Apple product.
