You're very sparing with the details here. What do you do that is technical? If you're a sole technical person in a non-technical office, I assume this means you're IT. Why exactly are you interviewing someone to be your supervisor? How did this happen? Are you being forced to have a supervisor because management wants to reign you in? So many unknowns. Why wouldn't management make you the supervisor and get you to hire underlings if they feel they need more bodies? This reeks badly of a top-heavy organization.

+ - iPad with 2 dock connectors sells for $10,200->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Why has someone just paid $10,200 for a first-gen iPad that isn’t fully-functional?

The main reason is due to the fact this model never got released. It’s a prototype unit that Apple manufactured with not one, but two dock connectors. Everything else remains the same as the final, shipped iPad in terms of hardware configuration, but that second dock connector is totally unique. It shows Apple was experimenting to see if they needed a second connector for docking the tablet in landscape mode."

An anonymous reader writes "Starting a new job always creates a mix of emotions. Excitement, trepidation, nervousness. Landing a job at Apple is only going to enhance any and all emotions due to the reputation and high standards the company exudes.

So how does Apple greet new hires? One of those new employees decided to capture a photo of the letter that awaited him, and it's both inspiring and daunting at the same time. It also points to Apple expecting you to work overtime including weekend when necessary."

Here's how he did it, starting with purging Google's traces from your browser, computer, and phone, and then finding alternatives for all those services he'd come to rely on."
