In More Job News, Apple is Hiring

"It's a sure thing that the iPad will get a camera in its second generation. After all, there's already an empty, iSight-shaped slot in the iPad's frame, and it's pretty much a sure thing that both the next iPhone and iPod Touch will have a camera. It would be absurd if the iPad didn't get one soon as well."

The job listing (posted here) tells the story, in which they say the "Media Systems team is looking for a software quality engineer with a strong technical background to test still, video and audio capture and playback frameworks." Since this is in the iPad Media Department, I'd say the chances are pretty good they are planning to have a camera in the iPad. If they are just now posting the job though, how long will it be before they actually get a camera in the iPad?

Want a Job at Apple?

"Apple is planning to leverage its work in transforming Mac OS X to work on other devices-most specifically the iPhone-to power "new platforms," according to a recent job posting. Those platforms will also be powered by "custom silicon," like Apple's A4 processor that powers the iPad."

You can see the job posting at Apple here, and it outlines they are looking for a full-time engineering manager to "oversee platform bringup with the Core Platform Team." Part of the duties will also be to "coordinate the software team with hardware and custom silicon teams in developing and prototyping new platforms." Anyway, lots of conjecture with this job posting as to what it all means for the future. Leveraging the architecture would certainly be one way to keep the revenue coming in, but do you think Apple will do that? What are your thoughts?

Apple Looking for Game Guru

"While some say Apple never wanted the iPhone to be a gaming device, the company knows which way the wind is blowing and wants to get involved. Apple is looking to hire a game and media software engineer for its iPhone and iPod touch team, which could mean it wants to make games of its own."

Conjecture actually on the gaming aspect, but they are looking for someone with gaming experience to fill this engineer position. According to the job posting they are looking for a "skilled software engineer who wants to work as part of a small highly motivated team to work on interactive multimedia experiences on the iPhone and iPod Touch." Sounds like Apple may want to tap into that growing market and get some of the dollars they are seeing go to developers. What are your thoughts?
