Those Apple Mac Tablet rumours just keep on getting juicier with news just in from the New York Times that Apple has just rehired Michael Tchao, one of the developers on the Apple Newton.

The Apple Newton may have been a design dog, but back in the day it was a groundbreaking touchscreen PDA, and it was Tchao who pioneered the handwriting-recognition tech.

It's unclear what Tchao's role will be within the company, but given that pretty much every PC manufacturer has launched – or is launching – a touchscreen device, we think that Apple's effort won't be far behind.
