Fluffy Links – Friday January 9th 2009

Can we get James to be an intern in Apple?

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

(Spoon feeding Steve his vegan yoghurt or whatever interns do)

James Foley is a UL student who dreams about working for Apple. He asked me to help out to try and get him an internship in Cupertino next year. I’m sure there are some that read this blog that might know someone that knows someone. So can you help?

So as you know at this stage, U.L makes a big deal about sending it’s students on work placement during their degrees. Most people doing my course (Business) get placement with local firms, some even venture as far as Dublin in search for work. But I really want to make use of this opportunity, I want to work somewhere relevant to what I want to do after college. I want to work for Apple, and have made it my number one priority this year to get an internship there starting in January of 2010.

Why Apple? It’s a company I have a genuine passion for, every computer I’ve had since I was a child has been a mac and I think that working for a company where culture and design are held in such high regard would make the early mornings and late nights all that much easier. There are probably people out there that are more qualified than me, that know more about the software and silicon that make computers work, but I honestly don’t think anyone else wants this as much as I do. I want to learn how to make great computers, how to write great applications and to help innovate and turn really cool ideas into really cool products.

So, can we help the guy? Be nice to see Irish people work in the Valley and *cough* get us contacts.

Labour politician playing runaway knock in Meath

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Labour politician Mick McLoughlin has been brazingly playing runaway knock at the Garda Station in his locality. If you vote for Beverly Cooper Flynn, the cow, then you have to vote for someone with a website called Mcloughlin4Dunshaughlin. Genius.

You can just feel the “Bring it on Garda mofos” attitude as he Mick presses the bell. Check out that pose:
Bring it Garda bitches

And does he leg it far? No he does not! Here he is down the street, not even running that far. Bring it!
Bring it MORE!

and if it wasn’t bad playing mindgames with the cop shop, he’s doing the same with the County Council. Not that they’d answer it. Not their job according to their union rep:
Come on County Council, bring it!!!

Let’s bankrupt Blacknight – 25% off voucher for shared hosting

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Ok maybe not but from today January 7th to January 9th, if you take out a new shared hosting package with Blacknight and use the voucher/code: mulley then you’ll get 25% off. Why not reblog and reTweet this and Facebook it and all the rest. Not a bad aul deal now in fairness.

readier than ever for the imagination economy in 2009. happy new year, world! "4.7 years old. still in beta?" as the shirt says http://www.gearthblog.com/images/images2006/tshirt.jpg

Please note I get nothing out of this myself. Yes, I’m happy to do the same deal for other companies if I think it’s a worthwhile offer to the readers. If you want me to offer a discount to 1500 subscribers and another 1500 daily readers then it’s got to be worth the effort.

Google says that Irish tech/dev people aren’t good enough for them. As is pointed out, a HR process where 13 interviews over 6-9 months is almost the standard is inefficient and just plain stupid. Who in this economic climate can wait that long?
