Submission + - Surely There Is A Live Human At Apple? (

HotCoder writes: Leaving Money On The Table Is Bad, MMKay?

Could a live human at Apple change my iOS Developer type from Corporate to Individual? My Corporate membership expired well over a year ago. My Board of Directors totally bailed on me. It is not possible for me to register as an individual, after having been previously corporate, despite that corporate registration being long expired, the corporation itself no longer in business.

I've been waiting over two months — when I filed Radar #13926491 — to get Warp Life into the App Store. It's ready to submit the very instant I have a iOS Dev Account!

For no reason I can fathom, it is not possible to get a job of any sort as an iOS developer, unless one has at least one published App. There's no particular requirement that that App not SegVio all the time; perhaps no one ever checks. I'd love nothing more to work as an IOS Developer where I live right now. The Pearl District of Portland Oregon is up to its eyeballs in iOS shops, but until I can get that one first App into the App Store, no one will reply to my mail.

In My Honest Opinion, if one cannot build then test iOS source code, one has no business whatsoever hiring an iOS coder. Commonly I offer my source — there are no trade secrets — but no. It makes no sense, but really it is that bad.

I often find serious problems with Apple's web applications, and I do file Radars against them. Apple's web coders must not read their own BugBase.

I worked for Apple on two different occasions. You'll find a whole bunch of Radars I either opened or closed. It was not this way when I worked there. Apple's quality has been totally decimated in the last five years.

When the money keeps rolling in...
