Apple is recruiting for a Senior Embedded Systems Engineer:
<blockquote><p>The Xcode team is looking for a motivated and talented engineer to improve the support for iPod development within the Xcode tool-chain. The successful candidate will have experience working with embedded systems, hardware simulators/emulators, cross-compilation, and/or remote debugging. Experience with the ARM processor, Cocoa, Objective-C and Mac OS X is a plus. </p></blockquote> <p>Perhaps this is only for Apple-internal use, but I’d like to think Apple is opening the iPod to ISV’s. It may also mark the transition to a Mac OS X-based iPod.
