Jailbreakme.com Developer Lands Apple Internship

by Cynthia Harvey

The 19-year-old best known as "comex" will be working at Apple on the devices he used to hack.

Nicholas Allegra, a 19-year-old Brown University student, is best known for creating the Jailbreakme.com site which allowed iPhone and iPad users to jailbreak their devices just by clicking a link. A Forbes article about the site suggested that Allegra, also known as "comex," was so good at hacking the mobile devices that Apple should offer him a job.

Now Apple has apparently done just that. Allegra tweeted, "It's been really, really fun, but it's also been a while and I've been getting bored. So, the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple."
