    Default Apple Hires Jailbreak Developer, Notifications Likely To Suck Less Now



    There is almost nothing I want more to see implemented in iOS 5 than a new notification system. The current system infuriates me. There is nothing worse than playing a game, only to have a freaking text message pop up, and have my character in the background die because I couldn't close out of the notification window fast enough.

    WWDC next week will likely highlight some sort of improvement to the iOS notification system. Proof enough is in a couple recent hires Apple has made. Last year Rich Dellinger, the man responsible for the notifications system in WebOS, became a permanent resident in Cupertino. For those that haven't had the pleasure of using a WebOS device, track down the nearest Palm Pre and be wowed.

    The next big hire, was the recent acquisition of Jailbreak developer Peter Hajas. Hajas is most known for his MobilieNotifier iOS utility. Hajas is reportedly still in a trial period at Apple, but his recent tweets, and posting that he is in fact heading out Cupertino seems confirm as much. Also, Redmond Pie appears to have a screenshot of Hajas in Apple's internal directory listing him as an employee in iOS apps and frameworks.

    Hopefully the fruit of Apple's notification conquests is realized next week. If it isn't, i'll be livid. Thats a lot of lambs I could have avoided sacrificing.

    We all always knew that Apple has a love/hate relationship with jailbreaking. The love is because it allows them to see what users want for free; no need to pay for marketing or studies. This is taking it to the next step by hiring those great minds that brought the ideas to life in the first place instead of just copying the idea paritally and making it seem like they made it up all along.

    Good to see Apple recognize talent no matter where it presents itself.

    like i said on twitter,

    "if @peterhajas is really an Apple now... he cant use MobileNotifier in iOS... since it is his university project the idea of MobileNotifier is owned by the university, he would have to buy the idea from them, pay a fixed amount to use the idea or get sued by them for using the idea in iOS..."

    Pretty much a must include indeed!

    You also have to consider that the iPhone in the picture is already jailbroken to use mobilenotifier. which probably means it's unlocked too :P
    WHY AREN'T YOU JAILBROKEN?!?!!?

    most likely not US t-mobile though cause if you unlock in the States and pop in a t-mobile sim you don't get 3G. just edge
    regardless, I'm freaking excited to see this implemented if it is!! This'll make WWDC so awesome!
    my SPOON is too big

    isnt this a little bit too late considering that the even is tomorrow? i mean they couldn't hire a person one day and then the very next day, have some new revamped critical part of the OS.
