You run to the nearest Apple Store and think Apple is a fair company. But take a look at this OSNews.com news item. The Verge editor silently joined Apple without telling anyone!? Read about this on The Verge website here
Chris Ziegler, long-time The Verge editor had been missing by the online magazine. Tweet from Nilay Patel revealed this:
Chris began working for Apple in July, but didn’t tell anyone at The Verge that he’d taken a new job until we discovered and verified his dual-employment in early September. Chris continued actively working at The Verge in July, but was not in contact with us through most of August and into September. During that period, in the dark and concerned for Chris, we made every effort to contact him and to offer him help if needed. We ultimately terminated his employment at The Verge and Vox Media the same day we verified that he was employed at Apple.
Then OSNews.com revealed this in their article about this case:
This story is completely bonkers, and I can assure you – this is not the whole story. According to John Gruber, Chris Ziegler is not listed in Apple’s employee directory, and I personally have had this confirmed to me as well. Something really strange is going on here.
So! He is now hired by Apple or not? Apple is known for hiding a lot. Not only this story reveals it but also how they do actually treat employers worldwide with so much secret info. It will be interesting to see where Apple is going, but by eating up people having strong arguments about Apple is really scary politics.
