Apple Looks To The Clouds For New iOS Devs
Apple is looking for a few good iOS developers to help expand the company's cloud-based offerings. This much can be derived from the two new job postings on Apple's website. The first posting says Apple "is hiring outstanding operations engineers to deliver and manage the next generation of hosted infrastructure serving Apple products and services." The other opening indicates that Apple needs "experienced software engineers to work on distributed computing for data with non-trivial properties, and efficient online services for data access."
Similar to past job postings at Apple that vaguely suggested the possibility of future products (like the iPad) and new services, there are, indeed, times when job listings effectively point to the mysterious projects and other top-secret efforts underway in the tech labs of Cupertino. Naturally, these latest postings (which quietly went live just before the Christmas holiday and are finally getting noticed) imply that Apple is getting serious about the long awaited cloud-based iTunes update.
More realistically, however, it seems Apple is running with the runaway growth of Apple TV and, as a result, is seeking qualified developers who can expand upon the features of the cloud-centric $99 device, which - according to Apple just this week - has now sold in excess of 1 million units during its first three months of availability.

I hope we see a job listing related to WiFi syncing soon. I know I'm not going to use any streaming service from them when there's a million free ones.

I wouldn't be surprised if iTunesCloud does debut any time soon. iTC would be great and would satisfy a good amount of customers. These tiny hints are worth seizing, as you never know... They don't have to say anything to surprise us so let's seize even the smallest fragments of clues, and get at least a partial idea if what will happen. Messany.

You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!
