Hacker Comex of JailbreakMe fame hired as Google intern
Comex, of JailbreakMe fame, has been hired by Google, after a brief stint with Apple, whose corporate culture wasn't the right fit for Nicholas Allegra. He curbed his enthusiasm after feeling that Cupertino was just trying to tone down the jailbreaking phenomenon with his hiring, rather than putting him in motion on exciting projects, or, alternatively, was just being a kid hired by a large conglomerate.
Now Google steps into the mix, acquiring what some argue is one of the best mobile hackers around as an intern, as his Tuesday tweet indicates. What is he going to work on at Mountain View, and whether he will fit in another corporate culture, remains to be seen, but Google's workplace standards seem fairly lax for such a behemoth, plus he might be attached to something exciting, so we'll follow how this unravels. Alternatively, he might just have Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as his teen idols.
