CyanogenMod founder hired by Samsung


Discovered by Android and Me, CyanogenMod’s founder Steve Kondik is joining Samsung as a Software Engineer according to a Facebook posting. Sadly, Steve says CyanogenMod won’t be affiliated with Samsung in any way, but Steve told Android and Me he will be working on making Android more awesome. Luckily, it doesn’t appear he will be shutting down CyanogenMod.

 ”I won’t be blogging about Samsung, especially not in relationship to CM. I will be working on making Android more awesome, though.”

This is an exciting development.  Hopefully Samsung devices will get updated much quicker now.
