TiPb is reporting that Apple has hired MobileNotifier developer Peter Hajas. A well known figure in the jailbreaking community who has long shown Apple how notifications should be done, presumably he's been hired by Apple to... show them how notifications should be done. This has always been a serious weakness in the iOS UI, and I'm hoping he'll get them on the right track.
Meantime, the most critical and underreported aspect of this story was... his vest and jacket combination. And how I want them both. Actually, I could go for his glasses, shirt, tie, the whole ensemble. I want to look like that. Anybody want to lend me a hand?
