perhaps they send the leaked parts by cockroaches outside the building. We've heard in many reports that there are plenty in employees' room, so what if they trained some? hehe

And why would they care about people mocking stuff up? They're pitched as mock-ups, not the actual product.

Because they are often very correct.

I know folks love taking the piss on this security thing but the leaks are coming a lot later than they used to so Apple likely sees that as an improvement

I've been saying all along that all of these leaks are ridiculous, and heads need to roll. Tightened security should definitely be a priority.

The only way they will end all leaks will be to create apple run factories that do everything including component building and the workers aren't allowed to leave or talk to no one on the outside

To me it sounds more like 'don't blame us that they suck, we were allowed to test them'

Yep! Often correct!

 

And these are just the PHYSICAL pieces. You want to talk about how "correct" mockups are, we have to take into account all the digital ones, too.

 

Ah, for reference, in order:

 

iPad (the first one)

5th gen iPod (what became the iPod video, this one says "iPod AV" on the back)

iPad mini, at the original iPad's launch

No clue, some sort of Newton successor

iHome, a mythical Apple DVR (yes, DVR), built according to what people thought it "should be" back then (this was, what, 2004?)

 

Now, to be fair, the iPad 2 was pretty close (wrong, but close), and it's that orange mold thing that has sold me on the thought that they might even make an iPad mini, but that's really it. As far as physical mockups either claiming to be real products about to be released or just claiming to be mockups of how an expected product could look, way more failure than success. Take digital ones into account and the ratio skyrockets in the same way.

Make no sense to tighten down on Apple security in the US, when it is the folks in China doing the leaking. Idiotic, instead.

Get over what? Security?

No, just get over worrying about the leaks that do get out. After all it doesn't hurt them.

Get over industrial espionage? That's like saying, yeah, theft will happen, let's condone it by saying "get over it" instead of trying to stop it.

1. Because it isn't happening?

2. If you believe and/or can read Chinese, there was one. A shot of internals (showing a hard drive that, while a standard spinning disk, is even harder to get to) and a claim that it's being redesigned.

Falsehoods.

All I know is the original iPhone was the last product to come out of Apple that surprised everyone at the keynote. Ever since then, everything else has been leaked out months ahead of time.

Lets consider some differences here. They make millions of ribbons for iDevices for launch day. This means they need a long ramp up and/or multiple locations to produce such a component. These are easy to sneak out in a pocket, shoe, thermos, or even one's colon. So we have 1) a longer amount of time, 2) a lot more components being made, 3) a much higher mindshare for iOS-based devices, a and 4) much smaller components. Come on, where exactly are workers going to hid an iMac pedestal?

*GASP* THEY'RE REDESIGNING IT TO REMOVE THE PEDESTAL. THAT'S WHY WE HAVEN'T SEEN ANY!

A magnetic base that the iMac hovers above? Put all the 'PC' components in a flat base with just the super thin display hovering above with a Wireless Thunderbolt and power?

Yep. Apple has discovered a true room temperature superconductor which will serve as the hoverbase and casing for all future products.

No… They're not updating the iMac today, so I'm sad.
