Apple iPod Engineering Manager Tragically Killed While Riding His Horse

No comments:



Apple iPod Engineering Manager Allen "Skip" Haughay has been tragically killed while riding his beloved horse, Regal Bull, reports Mercury News.

Haughay, 48, was riding his horse to a party in Morgan Hill at about 8:20 p.m. when a GMC pickup struck the two of them. Both Haughay and his horse died at the scene. The driver told newspapers that he didn't see the 1,200 pound animal on the side of the road and hit the brakes too late, said MercuryNews. Officers said there was no evidence that Blaine Beck, 58, was under the influence; though it will take up to two months to investigate the accident.

Haughay described himself on his blog as "a software engineer with a long career in developing applications for the Apple Macintosh and Windows platforms. I have worked on such products as IBM's ViaVoice for Macintosh, and Synergy Software's Kaleidagraph. Recently, I have relocated to Cupertino, California, where I have accepted the dream job of a lifetime, as an application engineer working on perhaps the most culturally important consumer product of our time, the iPod. My passion is my horses. When I am not working, I spend most of my free time at the barn riding, training, and taking care of my three horses."

The viewing for Allen "Skip" Haughay Jr. is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Oak Hill Funeral Home at 300 Curtner Avenue. Services will follow at the Chapel of the Oaks at the same address.

Left behind are Haughay's parents, sister and partner, Abel Urbina. A funeral service will be help at Chapel of the Oaks today and both Regal Bull and Haughay will be cremated, their ashes remaining together at the farm. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.

More Sprint iPhone clues: Blackout for first two weeks of October

No comments:



Sprintfeed provides a screenshot of Sprint’s internal systems showing a blackout of some kind due to a major phone launch. The dates September 30th to October 15th fall in line with all of the recent rumors and Sprint’s Galaxy S 2 gets released next week so that ain’t it. Yeah, Sprint. Welcome to iPhone.

Want unlimited data on your iPhone 5? Sprint will hook you up mid-October

No comments:



Bloomberg reports that Sprint will differentiate itself from AT&T and Verizon iPhone offers by offering a truly unlimited plan.

Sprint, the third-largest U.S. wireless carrier, plans to begin selling the device in mid-October under a deal with Apple for the next model, the iPhone 5, said the people, who wouldn’t be identified because the plans aren’t public. Becoming the country’s only operator to offer the device with unlimited data service for a flat fee may help Sprint draw customers from AT&T and Verizon Wireless, which already carry the phone, they said.
Sprint, probably because it has to, offers reasonable plans without data capping or tiers. Its subsidiary Virgin Mobile would be even better with its $35-$55 unlimited plans.
