Though Apple is notoriously secretive about its product and software roadmap, we can sometimes glean details about its plans from public job listings and the hires it makes.

Though Apple is notoriously secretive about its product and software roadmap, we can sometimes glean details about its plans from public job listings and the hires it makes.

In that vein, Apple reportedly made an extremely interesting hire recently. TWiT host Leo Laporte relayed via Twitter this week that he had it on "good authority" that Apple hired audio engineer Tomlinson Holman to head up audio at Apple.

But Holman is far from your run of the mill audio engineer. The winner of the 2007 IEEE masaru Ibuka Award, Holman was the brains behind Lucasfilm's THX sound system and is also the man responsible for developing the world's first 10.2 surround sound system. Holman spent 15 years working for Lucasfilm and his audio expertise is quite varied - from his work in film to designing loudspeakers, Holman is an audio jack of all trades (no pun intended).

Hollman also teaches a course on Film Sound at USC. Further, his book Sound for Film and Television is required reading in man college film course curriculum's.

So what exactly will Holman be doing at Apple? Where and how will his audio talents be utilized?
