Normally, Apple hiring a new talking head isn't really the sort of thing that would make much news.
When it's the guy who was charged with getting Microsoft through its great big dustup with the EU, however, that's a different story.
Apple has reportedly convinced Tom Brookes, the spokesperson in charge of handling the EU case, to leave his current position and come over to the Mac side.
It's unclear what it is that Brookes would actually do at Apple, but after years of trying to convince Europe that Microsoft isn't hell-bent on wiping out its competitors and pushing inferior products on them, just about any new assignment would be a walk in the park.
