Former TechCrunch Apple reporter Darrell Etherington has begun a new job with Apple PR, 9to5Mac reports. Etherington stopped writing for TechCrunch at the end of June, and it’s now been revealed that this was in preparation for a move to Apple’s PR office in Toronto, Canada. Apple has been hiring a number of journalists and other online authors in recent months, albeit for positions that appear unrelated to each other; Anandtech authors Anand Shimpi and Brian Klug were hired into engineering positions in 2014, while Chris Breen and Jon Seff, both formerly of Macworld, also joined Apple in different positions.
Jesse Hollington was a Senior Editor at iLounge. He's written about Apple technology for nearly a decade and had been covering the industry since the early days of iLounge. In his role at iLounge, he provided daily news coverage, wrote and edited features and reviews, and was responsible for the overall quality of the site's content.
