Until Apple actually produces a new TV related device, rumors about what it might be working on will continue to flow, with no end in sight. While we still don't know what's next out of Cupertino, Multichannel News reports the company has hired a former CableLabs executive for the job of engineering director. Jean-François Mulé served as senior VP of technology development at CableLabs for the last two years, and MCN indicates that before that he worked on a number of IP-based projects like DOCSIS 3.0 and second screen technology. It's still hard to say what Apple may want to build for the living room, but apparently this is the kind of person needed to fill out that "vision of the future," especially if that means working with existing cable and satellite TV services.
