Steve Jobs' yacht confusion?

Apple dismisses Philippe Starck's involvement in any new products
Outspoken French designer Philippe Starck is perhaps best known for his unusable lemon/orange squeezer and very expensive iPhone speakers.

It appears he's not going to be known for the "quite revolutionary" product he told France Info Radio he'd been working on with Apple.

No form, no function

At least that's according to an Apple spokeswoman who told AllThingsD that he was not working on new products with the company.

The press speculation is Starck was designing a yacht for Steve Jobs.

Seems a little fishy even for Starck to call a yacht "quite revolutionary", but it appears that Apple TV, iPanel, or whatever it's called is going to be the work of one Sir Jonathan Ive.
