Game-playing iPod?

Rumors are flying that Apple is developing an iPod that can play games as well as music and digital video. GameSpot reports that a tech-sector recruiter made an offer to a software engineer, who turned it down saying he was being "heavily recruited by Apple." The engineer apparently said an Apple hiring manager named Mike Lampell is leading a group within Apple's iTunes division, and that the group is hiring C and C++ programmers with a "gaming background." The engineer also reportedly said that the project was described as "super secret," and that he would not be told details until he had been hired and signed a non-disclosure agreement.

    Guess he won't be so 'heavily recruited' by Apple after this...

    And no one else ...

    ... will want someone who can't show just a little bit of discretion.
