Update: Apple tells some tech blog "no."
I wouldn't have believed this except that Starck said it himself in an interview, discovered by HardMac. I'm not surprised at all that Starck, an excellent industrial designer (I used a number of his products when he designed some stuff for Target), was a confidant of Steve Jobs.
I am, however, surprised that he provided a timeline for the release of this Apple product. According to Starck, this "quite revolutionary" product he helped create will be unveiled in eight months.
