    Has the image in step 3 defeated the purpose of filling in the QR code? or did you obfuscate the email address?

  2. Jambone says:

    That’s just to access the application. It will be a short interview if you can’t produce the finished code in person.

    Too bad for you if you have loads of talent but no smartphone. Guess you have to find somewhere else to work…

    @Brian: Smartphones are free with new contracts. If you don’t have a smartphone you aren’t living in 2013.

      @MS: Some of us don’t want to pay for the ridiculously-priced data plans. I’m already paying for internet at home. Why would I want to pay for a data plan that would cost me more than I’m paying for home internet?

        no-contract plans are awesome because they are truly unlimited. i dont understand why people sign up for expensive lengthy contracts! no-contract services such as Cricket here in the NW have great reception & service as well. i want to convert everyone!

      Here in Ireland they may offer a free smart phone but it will costs triple that in a 2 year contract as standard at €50 a month around $70!!

      I live in 2013 and I don’t even have a cellphone. I do more than fine. I have a life, real conversations not interrupted by calls, I drive without distraction, I don’t walk into walls, I look at people when I’m out, not down at a tiny screen.
      I am polite to cashiers and servers, I acknowledge their existence with eye contact and a thank you. I don’t take photos of my food, clothes, car, kids,Christmas tree, dog, cat or duck lips and post them on every social media site in existence. I don’t spend my time at events taking video of what is happening, I actually enjoy the event itself, imagine that.
      As far as affording it, it is unnecessary, if you can’t handle any amount of time away from a device, you have a problem.
