Segway CTO Joining Apple

Doug Field, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Segway will be leaving to join Apple, according to a post on the Segway Chat Forum by the administrator, John Grohol.

"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 itis bad the rich history and experience of Doug is leaving, itis 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)," Mr, Grohol wrote.
