cagraham writes: Apple has hired Ben Shaffer from Nike, according to The Verge, to work on an undisclosed wearable tech project. Shaffer was previously the studio director of Nike's "Innovation Kitchen," where the FuelBand and Flynit shoes were developed. This actually comes as the second Nike employee Apple has poached recently — in late August they hired Jay Blahnik, who also worked on Nike's FuelBand. While an Apple iWatch (or similar project) isn't confirmed, it's certainly starting to seem likely.
