French site MacG suggests that Kevin Lynch, the former CTO of Adobe hired by Apple almost a month ago, may now be heading up the iWatch project. Lynch is a VP of Technologies, reporting directly to Senior VP Bob Mansfield.
We have learned that Kevin Lynch has a created a new team inside Apple with a lot of engineers who previously worked in the iPod team.
The engineers include Robert Curtis (who worked for several years on iPod firmware) and Steven Bollinger (the author of several Apple patents for the iPod, iPad user-interface and multi-touch screens).
Of course, we don’t know exactly what they are working on, but with all the iWatch rumors, this move is pretty interesting
We noted at the time that Lynch’s appointment at Apple seemed an unusual one, so it would be interesting to learn what Apple believes he brings to the party.
