Since I mentioned earlier that we didn't have enough time to get vDSP
up for ppc64, I thought I would in addition suggest one way that you
can do something about it.
Apple is hiring.
If you're good, really good, you might be the one to help us make
sure that key features like these get delivered to the right people
when they should!
Apple job #: 2238839 -- for individuals with great programming
techniques and performance minded mindset
