Some of my iOS related followers may have missed the news at //build/ - we launched Azure Mobile Services out of preview and into GA. I even demo’d mobile services _on a Mac_ in the keynote: http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2013/1-002 (31 mins in)
Secret heads up for App.net: Panic is looking to hire one, possibly two, amazing iOS/Mac engineers. This doesn't happen often. I haven't blogged/tweeted it yet. If you are amazing, or you know someone who is, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks!
