    Well, of course.

    Plenty of times.

    All the time, really.

    No kidding, almost all predictive concepts are solid!

    If it weren't so, then doing prediction based on no information at all would be...well...silly!:p

    ;) :D

    To be fair, those were concepts made based on leaked information rather than 'fan art'.

    I don't think I've seen anyone independently come up with anything really similar to what Apple comes up with.

    Lol, on the flip side has anyone been hired on the strength of their concepts?

    I might misinterpret you, but people do get employed using concepts in their portfolios. So I would say yes.

    Oh for sure, I just meant has anyone knowingly been hired by Apple?

    No. Not from UI concepts.

    One guy was hired at least as an intern due to having written a jailbreak hack that was licensed/bought by Apple

    And another guy was hired as an intern over his work to find exploits for jail breaking

    How come you have such knowledge of the hiring process and portfolios of their employees?

    Yes -- people (or one person at least) have been hired by Apple based on their concepts.

    Jan-Michael Cart's work on Siri and mocking up other interface elements earnt him a job at Apple helping design the 'user interface and experience'.
