Today the enterprise security is mainly to prevent leaking of business secrets, and for large corporate there will be very tight watch on the existing developments, but besides this one will be getting complete freedom in-term of personal life after eliminating work related technicalities

Very true 11 page article is way too long article for this space. Once could hardly catch all the pages.

Publishing Multi-Page Articles

Multi-page articles on EETimes are much less accessible and readable than single page articles. Some of the multi-page articles add only a few inches of material with each new page. I'd predict that a significant number of readers drop out after each page transition. Is there a reason why the entire article cannot appear on a single "page"? My scroll bar has no dimensional limits. It seems to me that the reader experience and the amount of text that actually reaches the readers would improve with "full articles on a single page" on-line publishing.

Touting credentials

People have always touted their credentials at respected institutions. I don't think that it is unique to the aura of Steve Jobs. We hear about Princeton University graduates, former IBM, Microsoft, GE, Google, or Apple employees. Employers are impressed by people who measured up to the standards of such institutions.

Re: Gender bias at Apple?

@Sheepdoll  well put! I am also perturbed by Satya Nadella's comments. Truth is innovation does not guarantee employment security either! I have seen many companies where good innovations by engineers are often shot down by marketing team for various reasons only to realize later that similar innovations in competing companies brought in handsome rewards! May be Nadella's comments were based on the past performance of Microsoft in product innovations when compared to those of Apple, for example!

Apple employees in genral shall be very confident and high technical excellence because Apple in directly gets the best out of the semiconductor companies or the high end manufacturing process.

You can lose job even at the very very prestigious company, you know, unemployment is very serious question in different nations. People might become discouraged and even talanted and hard-working person can lose a job and become depressed because of unsuccessful searches. If you have lost job, don't become discouraged, just sit and think what can you do. Sometimes resume helps to get job interview and job, too. Try to resort to professional resume writing service (like this one, http://resumewritinglab.com/ ) that can help make your CV more effective and avoid mistakes.

Hey, this is too verbose! Next time can you take a time to make it more pithy and to the point.

Qualtiy of blog does not match well with quality of iApple.

Jayna Sheats  -- Although Apple is known for very forward-looking non-discrimination attitudes, I could not help but notice the absence of a single female in this list.

While I have not had the time to read all 11 pages of the article.  I have been following the comments here.

When I was at apple between 1992 and 1998 there was absolutely no bias whatsoever.  Women in the imaging department were well represented. Even the postscript team which I was part of was at least 50 50 or so.  Back then it was not all that important.

Most of the people I worked with had PhDs or Masters. I with a lowly EET certificate had no problems working in this area.  Steve had to make the exception himself. So I guess I got my degree the same place he got his.

I got poached by a competitor.  Then I turned 40.  The main criticism if that is what it is, that I am too expensive, or that I would want to run the company or department.

On the other hand this industry has a really short (18 month) memory.  Anything older than that is obsolete.

Satya Nadella's comments on axing 18,000 at Microsoft is disturbing.

"The tech industry, Mr Nadella said in an email to employees last week, "does not respect tradition, it only respects innovation"

I wonder how many of those people were over 40?

Ditto... great article and very motivating. I have worked with Apple engineers in the past as a software vendor and as a colleague in other companies during their post-Apple regime. The stories I heard from them are very similar to what I read above in the article.
