Forget the reset, work for the best

Keen to make that move to the world leader in digital graphics technology? A "workplace that is fueled by ingenuity and innovation"? The company that "revolutionizes how the world engages with ideas and information"?

Obviously, you'll want to start with the Adobe website careers page:

This is not April 1, and I'm not joking. That is their real careers page, right now.
"Together we’re turning engaging digital experiences into more valuable interactions every day — across media and devices, anywhere, anytime."
Uh, not so much, actually.

Hilariously, this came to light (via Daring Fireball) because of a tweet from John Dowdell at Adobe:
"I know that a number of good people work at Apple. If you’re seeking a more ethical company, Adobe is hiring:"
You are trying to attract Apple employees through a careers page that doesn't work on Apples. There's a phrase for that, John, and I know it's overused, but it has to be said: Epic. Fail.

PS Hey, they didn't mention iPhone. Maybe it works fine on the iPhone... ?
