Apple’s big news, 116 jobs at Microsoft’s new toy, plus remote work
APPLE OF OUR i
Yesterday was the keynote for Apple’s big annual show (WWDC). This year, instead of peddling a new smart-thingy, they explained the great lengths they’re going to get you to stop using their products altogether. In addition to anti-addiction features, iOS 12 is going to let you make custom emojis (sounds like a slow news year to us). The New York Times has a good roundup here. And here are 12 featuresthat didn’t get mentioned yesterday.
GIT GETS GOT
Microsoft announced the acquisition of GitHub for a stunning $7.5 billion. There are three camps on this one: those thinking this will bring Microsoft back to its developer roots, those thinking Microsoft will ruin GitHub, and those asking what in the hell is a GitHub?
Just a year ago, the company was recovering from a number of high-profile cultural challenges, and GitHub’s value was pegged at $2 billion.
GitHub has a full 116 open jobs – from financial analyst, to sales, to (surprise) engineering, including a large number of remote roles. We expect this number will go up with access to the giant wallet in Redmond, WA.
