Segway CTO to join Apple: Didn't Jobs hate the Segway?


The Segway, seen here in all its inelegance, was a milestone in something or other. All the more reason, then, to applaud the company’s CTO for accepting a position at Apple. Doug Field, if we’re to believe random posts on a Segway message board, will become Apple vice president of product design.

When the Segway was first introduced, it was universally teased for being, among other things, laughably silly looking. (That’s how I remember it, at least.) Steve Jobs, iLounge reminds us, was one of the many to have a problem with the device.

Let’s all roll our eyes together, in unison.
