Apple is Looking for Maps Web UI Designer to Work on Secret Project

A brand new top secret project is in the works for Apple. That is why it placed a wanted ad in the job listings section recently. According to the advertisement, Apple was offering anyone qualified for the task at hand a full time job. The chosen candidate will be a part of a small scale team. The team will in turn handle the latest web platform. Many of Apple’s services for the coming days will derive their origin from this scheme.

Those who apply need to be familiar with both design elements and development basics. Extensive practice using HTML, CSS and Javascript are mandatory. Along with this sufficient knowledge of XML and JSON are necessary too. 

All in all, the making of a scheme and forum for the futuristic project was sought by Apple. The expansion and upgrading of the mapping facility was another area that needed looking into. Startups such as Embark and HopStop were acquisitions meant for this sole purpose.

Maps were transported to desktop in OS X 10.9 Mavericks along these directions. Although not much could be said yet, Apple appears to be ready to leave a web footprint behind it. This move by it would immensely benefit developers. Especially those who want to integrate mapping information into their sites and apps have a lot to gain from this step taken by Apple Incorporated.

One of the best Hall of Fame classes in history will be inducted this weekend. That's a great thing, but museums are futile, there is no truth, and the dodo is extinct, damn it. When we began this here baseball page about 18 months ago, one of the initial questions we had to answer was, "Why would anyone do that?" There was the obvious answer, which is that we had a full-function sports platform without any baseball coverage, and perhaps ...
