(USA Today)   On the one hand you'd be able to put "iCup Technician- Apple Inc." on your resume. But on the other that'd mean you were the flunky who got everyone's coffee for them   (usatoday.com) divider line 19

Probably a great job if that's the best you're qualified for.  Red flags for everybody else working there though.

HR Marketing: "We're such a great place to work, look at all these perks!  There are even people who go to the break room and fetch coffee for you!"
Translation: "We're going to work you so hard that you won't even have time to go to the break room for a couple seconds and pour your own coffee."

no thanks.

Degree in Philosophy would be a good prerequisite as computer nerds oft get philosophical when ganked out on caffeine.

I remember a scrappy little MD ISP (that sold for some large fraction of a billion dollars a few years later to Worldcom)  during the First Flowering of the dot-com boom where everybody on the floor was usually on their fourth or fifth cup of coffee or jolt before lunch and the "Board of directors" would regularly hotbox the whole damn boardroom.    Let me tell you, you NEVER want to stop by and shoot the shiat with smart people who are both stoned and wildly over-caffeinated

Is this the Apple equivalent to having to wear a helmet at your desk?

Leave it to Apple to overhype a crap thing and make it sound halfway decent. Those guys could find a way to sell dog vomit (proof: they actually found 42,000 people willing to buy the Pippin, despite the popularity and superior game library of the original Playstation).

I would make them spell out their title, then call them perverts and kick them out of my office before they got to spelling technician. Then I would travel back in time to tell my 6 year old self what I had done, because my 6 year old self would find that hysterical.

Whoever has that job will never be able to tell his kids. They'd just ask him how to spell it.

Hmmm, sounds like more advancement opportunity than working at this bank.

iCup can't be a real product. Spell it out aloud once. That's like naming a disease "Assburgers" or something....

why can't we just have a position titled 'office biatch' and call it a day?

That's "admin assistant" or "unpaid intern"

Gotta admit, the internet has forever ruined anything with the word Cup in it for me.
