    This might not be the appropriate place to post this but I thought you guys would still appreciate it.

    So my GF's cousin works for Apple. We had him and his wife over for a little 4th of July hangout.

    We got talking and I asked him if the jailbreak scene affects them at all and he laughed and said "We actually like it! We just aren't allowed to" That response kind of shocked me but he seemed to be 100% about it and then continued to tell me about Apple's goals and visions. Basically why their stuff is so dang expensive.

    He said they write the software and then find the hardware to match that software and that is why their products are expensive. I beg to differ but it's nice to at least hear it from an employees mouth.

    My point being, APPLE LOVES US!!!!

    Yes, because every employee is the same and each individual employee represents the entire Apple company as a whole.

    yeah that's true. He might have just been referring to his fellow friend/coworkers, not sure how many people approve of it. Still cool to hear.

    I know he was part of the designing the iPhone interface. Not sure what he did on that team. I do know he has some web design skills as my GF has had some lessons because she has recently had to redesign her companies website in CSS which she had minimal experience with.

    He said the Apple TV was crap and he is trying to change or get rid of it. Maybe a subscription service and have a quota or unlimited amount of data that can be accessed.
