After Hiring Comex, Is Apple Looking To Appoint MuscleNerd Next?

We all know master iOS jailbreaker Nicholas Allegra a.k.a @Comex was hired by Apple as an intern a few weeks ago. But looking at a picture (shown below) tweeted by Dev-Team member @MuscleNerd, it seems as if Apple is trying to grab another iPhone hacking genius ahead of the iOS 5 / iPhone 5 launch. He tweeted this photo during his recent trip to San Francisco where he made a visit to Apple’s campus and was given a visitor’s name tag saying “MuscleNerd” instead of his real name, which is also not yet known to any of us either.

As published by modmyi:

For now, all MuscleNerd would admit to on Twitter is that he visited the prominent campus. “Well this afternoon sure was fun… (what a great company!)…,” he tweeted, including a picture of himself wearing a t-shirt that reads: “I visited the Apple campus. But that’s all I’m allowed to say.”

He subsequently tweeted: “my host at Apple surprised me with that visitor’s name tag…I had expected it to be my real name :).”

Business Insider comments:

“Without Allegra and MuscleNerd, the elite community of iPhone hackers known as the iPhone Dev Team will be significantly crippled.”

Check out the photo showing Apple Store t-shirt and name tag MuscleNerd below and tell us what you think Apple is really up to?

    I think that’s apple’s way of buying jailbreak gurus likes these people…. Lure them in using a catching job title and have them sign a confidentiality letter. That way, they can’t release any hacks (because apple can sue them now, since they are apple’s employee) and this agreement holds until two years after they get off work with apple…

    It’s obvious what Apple’s up to. Keep your friends close….but your enemies closer. They figure (in a way) if you can’t beat them then join them by luring them in with a job/opportunity. Shows you just how unscrupulous/devious Apple is. 

  • I bet Muscle Nerd fell into one of those ‘trap doors’ just like the ones Mr. Burns had in his office.

    Seems like the best way to get a job at Apple HQ is to aggressively hack iOS.

    Don’t know if any of you feel the same way I feel, comex’s tweets are so boring now. I don’t even know why he is still tweeting something about iOS or iDevices. He does dare to say anything like before. He carefully worded hills tweets before he sent it out. He already lost his own personality because of the job from Apple.
