Segway CTO To Become Apple VP of Product Design

According to Segway forums, Segway Chief Technology Officer and designer Doug Field has up until now lead their entire engineering team is apparently leaving the company to become Vice President of Product Design at Apple.

Doug has been the driving force in making the Segway what it is today and will be sorely missed at the company. However, with every change comes good and bad. So while it's bad the rich history and experience of Doug is leaving, it's good in that perhaps the team will get a fresh perspective into possible engineering solutions for future versions of the Segway (or Segway-like applications).

And hey, what can be better than a gig at Apple? These days, in the design and engineering world, not much!!

We wish Doug all the luck in moving on!!
