Apple is Aggressively Hiring Fresh Talent for iWatch

Apple is on a headhunting trip to gather all the talent and expertise for its iWatch project. It definitely needs all the help it can get. According to Financial Times via MacRumors , "The company has begun hiring “aggressively” for the project in recent weeks." iWatch has several technical engineering problems that are quite difficult to deal with. That is why Apple is on a quest for the best individuals to conquer these limitations. The smart watch is supposed to come out in the latter half of 2014. The smart watch is a sort of wearable computer. Furthermore, it runs on its iOS mobile operating system. A team of more than a hundred employees is currently working on the design and manufacturing of the smart watch.

The fact that it fits on the wrist like an arm band and features curved glass are two of the prominent qualities of the smart watch. Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke of how he found the whole concept quite interesting but that it would be quite a job making it popular among the youth. Most young people don’t wear watches. So that would be a challenge. The former CEO of Yves Saint Laurent, Paul Deneve joined Apple recently and is looking towards fixing this aspect. The year long wait will probably allow other players such as Google and Pebble to strut their stuff. Till then Apple has many minds which have assembled together to create a smart watch exclusive to the company.
