Using an iPhone inside Apple's HQ at 1 Infinite Loop feels surprisingly much like using it anywhere else.

A year ago, the MemShrink project started. Firefox is now arguably the best browser when it comes to memory use:

VP of Product Design at Highfive, Inc.
Introduction
Alex Limi’s formal background is in psychology and computer science from various universities in Norway, and he co-founded the open source Content Management System Plone back in 1999. It is now one of the largest content management software projects in the world, with about 100 core developers and over 500 add-on developers as well as 250 companies in 50 countries providing services, support and integration for the system.

In 2003, he co-founded the company Plone Solutions — now known as Jarn — where he is still heavily involved on the owner side and as a board member. He was instrumental in creating the Plone Foundation, a non-profit that protects and promotes Plone, trademarks and intellectual property, and negotiated initial funding with a major industry player.

In 2006, he moved from Norway to San Francisco and started working with Google as a User Interface Designer in Mountain View, California.

In 2009, he started working for Mozilla Corporation as part of the Firefox team.
