Apple Employees: It's Fun Again

Apple Employees: It's Fun Again

Posted by · 12185 views · Translate

There's been a lot of talk about Apple's new vibe it gave off at WWDC 14 -- many people seemed to think Apple seemed a lot more relax, comfortable, and confident about the direction it's headed towards -- it's ready to play.

Daring Fireball's John Gruber also pointed this out in his recent podcast, and added an interesting note as well.

“I really got a sense talking to people at Apple last week at WWDC that they’re happy,” Gruber said. “Happy in a way they haven’t been. In fact, one friend literally said the words ‘it’s fun again,’ which i thought was pretty interesting.”

Gruber’s special guest Guy English said he also met many Apple employees that told him the same thing: “I’m having a lot of fun.”

This is a fairly interesting statement considering how many people think Apple's most innovative and creative days are behind them, especially since Steve Jobs is no longer leading the company. However Gruber doesn't believe Apple employees are "taking it easy and relaxing," instead, they are "tackling interesting problems and having a good time doing it.”

Apple is taking is taking its collaboration to 'another level' senior executives told Bloomberg back in 2013, and WWDC 14 clearly showed off some of the company's hard work. With Apple's 'best product pipeline' ever, 2014 should be a very interesting year for the company.
