    hi all,
    as some know, i am developing...er...a piece of software
    http://liberalmac.gwtall.com/legacysystems/)
    and i sent an email to the adc about it, and possibly selling it to apple.
    when i got home from school today, my mom told me APPLE COMPUTER CALLED AND ASKED FOR ME!!!
    she said she thought it was probably just some offer to get applecare or something, but i, being the crazy optimist that i am, wondered if this may be concerning the development of my software
    a few minutes ago, i thought to myself, was this just a prank from a friend who knows im a mac fanboy?
    well, i looked at our caller id logs and sure enough,
    916-399-7992
    APPLE COMPUTER

    does anyone know if this the operating system development people or just a marketing number? if anyone knows, please post before a die of anxiety for possibility that actual devs at apple called for ME :)

    thanks:)

    Maybe they're calling to tell you to not infringe on copyrights :).

    i wouldn't want to disturb His Steveness :)

    they said they'd cal back, didn't tell my mom to tell me to call 'em, but hey, i'm calling them now...


    EDIT:
    thank you for calling apple
    from time to time, we call customers to inform them about new services and products
    you call was either about mac os x tiger, the new imac G5 (yes, they said G5, not intel, i guess they're just pushing those), or our apple protection plan
    call 1-800-MY-APPLE to learn more about our great products
    thank you for calling apple

    DARN,DARN, DARN!
    anyone know who to actually contact at apple about development who will actually be a human, any not be from the paid adc membership help thing?

    fiddlesticks! and i though i was gonna be a millionaire! :mad:

    I don't think they have any interest in a teenager programmer. Sorry. :(

    I just want to point out how amusing it is to me that no one seems to have any faith in Democrat622. I'm not saying it's possible, but at least I'm not saying it's impossible.

    I'll cross my fingers for you. :D

    Well, I can't say I blame them. ;)
    Still, all I told apple was that I'm a student...
    OK, even I admit, no way I will ever be hired by apple inthe next 10 years:mad:

    Yeah, you have no chance of working at Apple without going to college and getting a degree in something like computer science....even then, you're chances are very slim.

    You could probably get a job there sweeping floors without a college degree...

    Yeah, you were going to be a millionaire alright. Some kid having a little computer project, one without any information about it on the site, by the way. Riches and fame.

    Out of interest, what does your software do? Is it the OS?

    As far as I know, AFAIK stands for Apple Fanboys Are Incredibly Kind. :D Although if you ask me, the attitude in this thread would suggest otherwise.

    That would require setting up a redirect...which would use up valuable time that would be better used doing OS programming. ;)

    I think maybe the OP should take a gander at how/where Apple got the idea for Dashboard/Dashboard Widgets.
