Apple has reportedly hired James (Jueng-Gil) Lee, a former senior researcher on LG Display's R&D team. Prior to that, he worked as a researcher at Cambridge Display Technology and as R&D head for LCD technology at Samsung. Clearly, he's got quite a bit of experience in the television industry.
Unfortunately for Apple, they don't make a TV. But, this hire is sure to add fuel to the rumors of an Apple TV that has been predicted by analysts for at least a year now. Of course, these are just minor details. We'll sure he'll find a good home at Apple, though what he'll be working on isn't known. A good bet would be Apple's displays.
