Apple Seeks to Recruit Senior-Level Executives to Further Cloud Apps


Apple appears to be in the hunt for senior executives with experience in web-based software, according to the Wall Street Journal. Their sources mention Apple plans to build apps that take advantage of the cloud:

In recent weeks, Apple has been looking to recruit senior-level executives with backgrounds in Web-based software, according to people familiar with the matter. It has approached at least one prominent Internet entrepreneur since at least earlier this year about a possible position, according to these people, who say the details of the possible job were unclear. The company has also discussed its needs with recruiters, one of the people said.

Apple is also considering building new apps that leverage the Web to reduce people’s need to carry around numerous devices at once, according to one of the people familiar with the matter.

iCloud is the latest offering for customers alongside iOS 5. Apple wants to create a digital hub for your devices, and so far iCloud has achieved that with features such as Photo Stream, automatic downloads, and iTunes Match. Stay tuned as iCloud appears to be ready to expand and increase more cloud-based apps for iOS users.

    Fired up a US account the other day solely for the iTunes match service. (Thanks for the tutorial a while back!). It was a breeze to do. All I can say is amazing! Of 3200 songs it only didn’t match about 175. Downloaded them all in AAC 256 and sounds much better than the MP3 192 the majority of my collection was encoded in. Than goodness for the 64gb 4s or the new tracks would not have fit. I easily would have paid $100 for this service.
