    I wouldn't call that silly article a confirmation. A lot of tech companies have paid and unpaid interns. With unpaid ones they are limited in how they can be legally used. Basically they can't displace the duties of a real employee, but it can be a way for companies to hunt for bright students. I suspect that confirmation was something of that sort, intern duties meant to determine how the individuals approach various problems. There are other possibilities like menial projects that were simply doomed.

    I have been thinking this myself, I was wondering if Apple planted this entire idea in hopes it competitors all jumped on the idea only to waste money time and resource on a non-starter product. When in fact Iwatch was something to do with TV not a piece of body jewelery

    I think it would be a huge mistake if apple made an "iWatch". Every time I see this rumor it is easily dismissed. What can an "iWatch" do that an iPhone cannot do better? All the talk is a smoke screen...

    How do they know what to design when there is no iWatch side by side on their watches?

    I can honestly see Apple coming out with a really good design for a smartwatch. It probably will require pairing of some sort with an iPhone/iPod Touch and maybe even have some limited functionality when far from other iDevices.


     


    What I see with all other designs out there is downright ugly. Too bulky IMO.


     


    If Apple comes up with a design it'll probably look like the "Nike FuelBand", at least I hope Jony Ive can pull something subtle like that, out of his hat.


    Let other manufacturers throw everything including the kitchen sink into their junk. A good designer doesn't just think of what he can put into his creation but also what he leaves out. In that respect, I trust Sir Jony.

    So one day I went to the Appleinsider forums to read up on any rumors or speculation concerning new Macbook Pros or the upcoming Mac Pro.


     


    So I checked out the "FUTURE APPLE HARDWARE" forum.


     


    You know what I found at the top of the list?


     


    A Post from AI about a Samsung watch...


     


     


     


     


    What. the. heck.

    What disinformation? They haven't said anything except file for some trademarks.

    And a racist too…? Man, I'm seriously beginning to dislike you. Bringing the entire "Samsung Attitude" to the AI forums now?


     


    Is there a way to "ban" certain people from showing up in threads when I come here?

    No I'm not racist. Can't you take a joke? Jeez. When did we all become a bunch of sensitive pansies?

    What article? I'm talking about an interview with some guy from Apple in the early naughties who said exactly that: Apple has people who explicitly leak falsified information to see which of their suppliers and retailers to punish.

    They may leak false information, but Dave Newton (ex-Safari) debunked the fake project thing.

    To be clear, do you mean the "fake project" article about how interns and new hires were supposedly put on devices that don't exist?

    Not that. I'm talking about something even older.

    Wrist Foosball™ anyone? I'm thinking sky is the limit here on the creative possibilities.

    About the time you stormed into the china shop wearing that bull outfit, maybe?


     


    I'm probably not alone in thinking you probably work with or for Samsung, based on a good number of your posts. You sure know how to troll a thread pretty well too.


     


    Huh, yeah… that's all really.
