Did he really forget, or was what Apple was offering below par and he had hoped that maybe they'd come back to him with a better offer? Apple may be a great place to work, but not every employee gets what they want, or need, or deserve out of them. if everyone that worked there did, then no one would ever leave.

I doubt it. Now that he's worked at Apple, they can claim that he is privy to Apple's trade secrets, and could credibly sue him for making public any method of jailbreaking Apple devices.

Given his skill set and connections in the industry, he will most likely get higher paying employment with a security company than being an intern at Apple.

Also, exploits for vulnerabilities can be sold. In the vulnerability grey market, exploits like the ones he produces sell for big money.

Not everyone cares to kiss Apple's ass. Bravo. Now go over to Samsung and make Apple regret their decision.

Anyone heard of this before?
I kind of think you need to read it again, or I do. I think he was always a remote intern and I don't think a company looking to push anyone out is going to unleash them into the world to work from wherever outside of the watchful eye. Think about it.

If he is remote I don't doubt that they shot him an e-mail. Most people who work in the real world read their e-mails and those who do not find themselves out of a job eventually.

And to those calling him a douche by his photo; how incredibly narrow-minded people are these days. To get to a point where you can look at some scruffy 20 year old kid and think he's a douche is absurd to me. He "forgot" to respond to an e-mail and that smells fishy but there has to be way more to the story.

I like how you guys talk about the "real world" as if it's hard, or something only some people can handle. Get over yourself.


And by the way, as far as the "real world" goes... you're hitting buttons on a board, entering 0's and 1's into a box and sending them hundreds of miles away within a matter of seconds into another box where it's stored and displayed for others to look at and reply to in the same way.

You call this reality?

Get real.

You're confusing the rate at which opportunities come to sub-120s like you, and people like Allegra.

Understandable mistake.

I'm not in any field that Apple deals with, and I have great respect for anyone talented enough in their field to get hired there. My point was that if I was offered a job at one of the best places to work in the world, I would have been on making sure I'm replying to my email.

Maybe I'm wrong about him being arrogant on second thought. I guess I was trying to say that you can be the smartest and most talented person in the world, but you can't be unmindful, otherwise you'll get the boot. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that you should reply to an email offering you a long term job.

You want to work for Apple? Foxconn just sent you an email

They were offering him a continuation of his internship.

I am quite sure that this "remote intern" job was much more like a monthly "please don't release any hacks for iOS" pay off, and not so much a career choice he would have to be stuck in.

I have no doubt that Apple had him contractually restricted from releasing any iOS hacks as long as they were paying him, with further stipulations that he report all coding errors/loopholes he found exclusively to Apple.

Being a low-level apple code monkey or hardware jockey is not the best pay in the world. I'd offer him 90k+benefits+equity to work full-time in Texas with a clear path to 100k+ in a year or two.

Hopefully he can get back to jailbreaking. He most likely will not be able to go by comex or his real name since he signed an NDA with Apple and probably learned a lot about A5/A6 boot-loader security with insider Apple knowledge.

I don't understand the hostel reactions to this guy. He's not working for apple, not that happy about it, that's fair. Missing an e-mail deadline doesn't make him a bad person.

Also he looks like a Harry Potter for sure.

Why would you want to work for Apple anyway. Biggest nazi employer on the planet. No trust no loyalty and crappy hours and no life.

He would be better off working at Google. At least they have a good culture.

You only have to look at the acquisition retention of staff of Apple vs Google.

At Apple they cant wait to get out.

Yea... when someone asks you if you want to keep working and you don't respond... you tend to stop working there...

Your statement's strangely got nothing to do with my response to someone calling me jealous in response to my original post, calling the young man a douche bag for having lost sight of Apple's email.
