Apple (AAPL) confirms it has hired Adobe (ADBE) CTO Kevin Lynch. He'll be the company's VP of technology, and report to wireless hardware/chip engineering chief Bob Mansfield. There's some speculation Lynch's role in spearheading Adobe's successful cloud software push may have appealed to Apple. Adobe says it won't be hiring a new CTO; Lynch's responsibilities will be doled out to other execs. A source tells AllThingsD Lynch wanted to be Adobe's CEO. (earlier)

  • and for all those nay-Sayers on Apple,that they lost their creativity - they lost the edge, well the " think-tank" is working full speed and the brain-power is growing, so while Samsung is trying to swing the Galaxy 4 into it's ever best copy of the iPhone 5, Apple is working on the 6, this is fantastic, see how lucky we are that we are able to buy Apple's stock with a 4 in front of it.....sssttt, is good let the competition think they are winning, this is the "battle of the Bulge " i am entitled to say this coming from the low-lands of Europe.
