Creater of iOS Jailbreaking Tool Takes Internship at Apple

Hey Kids, want to work for your favorite tech company? Hack 'em. That's what Nicholas Allegra did. Better known as Comex, Allegra is the creator of the JailbreakMe 2 and Jailbreak 3 software which allowed iPhone users to remove download and software installation restrictions from their iOS device.

On Thursday, August 25, Allegra took to Twitter and wrote: "It's been really, really fun, but it's also been a while and I've been getting bored." He then followed that Tweet with another which read: "So, the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple.”

Allegra can help Apple's iOS team bolster the mobile operating system's security, which can potentially make it very difficult for future jailbreakers.

Maybe Sony should holler at George Hotz?
