Think about it.

The guy was essentially a hacker. A good one... that's why they gave him a 'job' in the first place.

It is my guess that Apple hired him "remotely" (not needing/wanting him to relocate or work on campus) probably because they did not want or trust a hacker wandering around Cupertino.

What they probably did want was to drain his brain of anything of security interest on the cheap and without any longterm obligation, hence....(ahem.), Intern.

One reason why he is probably no longer working at Apple is because the above scenario either worked out [for Apple] or did not, whichever way you chose to look at it.

Anyway, are we really calling this guy names etc, merely because he did not get / take up a longer term posting?

Really?

This guy looks almost exactly like my cousin for some reason. I thought it was him for a moment.

Answer: You don't. You have zero knowledge of what the job was.
If Apple was really interested, they'd have given him obviously more than they gave him. And since when is being an intern a great job?

I mean, seriously, get real. They had to have been given him something he decided wasn't worth his time and effort, and the guy works for free. You do the math.

I'm not replying to you anymore. You're only interested in cheering Apple on with your arguments. This is macrumors, not macfanboy. Some of us want to know what's going on and don't need people telling us how much everything that doesn't give Apple money is insufficient. Comex is very important for my user experience. I'm glad to see him not need an intern job any longer.

Here's my guess

The reason he wasn't happy about staying was, he wants to crack iOS 6, which is a lot harder than all the other versions. I imagine it will fall, and Comex wants the bragging rights.

What do you want a user agent faker for? Pretend you're another phone?

I use it to pretend that I'm a full-on PC so I don't have to deal with every other site shoving their iOS app in my face. There are also some annoying mobile sites, especially my school's mobile site, which doesn't work and doesn't let you switch to the regular site. Also, I think a lot of sites replace their Flash ads with images that can load if it detects a mobile device, which is bad.

I went to a site to look up some scientific fact (forget what it was), and the site immediately redirected me to their app on the App Store. Very annoying.

As I said, you don't have any information about the offer. You have not even read the information in this thread concerning the agreements he signed that preclude him from working on a jailbreak. You're the one who needs to live in the real world where facts exist, not just your fantasies and irrational Apple anger.

Apple needs to have put a geek in charge of this guy rather than some MBA.

Your cousin looks like Harry Potter?

Not as much as this guy does. It's more like this:
Potter ≈ Allegra ≈ cousin
not
Potter ≈ cousin ≈ Allegra
Like 3 and 5 both being close to 4, but 3 and 5 aren't that close to each other.

my thoughts as well, if he was smart he didn't reveal all his tricks.

I don't think anyone should expect him to come back to the Jailbreak scene anytime soon.

Probably never.

The kid is moving on

This thread is hilarious. First people claim to know what job he was offered. Now people claim to know he didn't report to a geek.

I don't think anyone knows about his job. Its just that he slacked replying to an e-mail and that didn't sit well with the management. He tweeted this himself as to why he was let go.

And after working many years in such an environment I can see sometimes that management really don't know how to deal with geeks. They are more into protocols rather than how to get the best out of an employee.

It was more of a musing. Well if it's funny, then at the least it was good for a laugh.

Email job offer? Shouldn't they have called him or met with him?

That's the problem right there. Apple makes millions of iPhones; therefore it would have taken an incredible effort to locate the precise phone with which to call him.

Thanks for noticing that highly relevant connection between making phones and calling someone, which led me to reach this conclusion.

I don't work in the tech industry, but every formal offer I've ever gotten has at least been accompanied by a phone call.
