Apple just hired Michael Tchao back from a 15 year stint out of Cupertino as VP of Product Marketing, reporting directly to Phil Schiller, SVP of Product Marketing.

Mike was previously on the Newton team before he left to work on stuff like Nike's Techlab, which produced products like the Nike+ iPod system that I actually used three hours ago.

Will Michael be back to head up the marketing efforts for the Apple Tablet? Or maybe some sort of exercise device similar to the Nike+? Is it annoying when I write sentences in the form of a question? [NYTimes]
