Un errore imperdonabile con la pubblicazione di dati riservati ed un annuncio di ricerca personale fanno supporre che le specifiche dei nuovi G5 su AppleStore non fossero il trucco di un buontempone…

Da poche ore è comparsa sul sito di Apple una ricerca di personale per la posizione di “Web Publishing Manager WW Apple Store” che, se non fosse triste per chi potrebbe averne pagato le spese, non farebbe che confermare la veridicità  delle specifiche di cui si è parlato in questi giorni nella comunità  Mac.

La notte tra giovedì e venerdì scorso sull’AppleStore online di Apple erano stati pubblicati per errore i dati dei nuovi e imminenti PowerMac con processore definito “G5”.

L’utente Mac dopo aver soddisfatto la propria curiosità  ha almeno per un minuto pensato a quel “poveraccio” che per errore si è lasciato sfuggire quel piccolo GIF perché andasse online… peccato che fosse troppo presto per far sapere a chiunque cosa Apple avesse pronto da mostrare al WWDC di San Francisco.

Niente di più grave per Jobs che ha, forse non a torto, il pallino della riservatezza su prodotti non ancora annunciati.

Forse il nostro amico è da qualche ora a spasso per la Silicon Valley alla ricerca di un nuovo lavoro e Apple forse sta cercando il suo sostituto.

Copiamo di seguito il testo dell’inserzione perché potrebbe sparire presto vista l’abbondanza di competenze di questo tipo in California.
