Apple is so obsessed with security that it puts people to work on fake projects until they prove themselves

eh it really doesnt seem that horrible to me… if i were hiring an engineer i would want to make sure he first knew what he was doing before working on a big project and also wasnt someone who would mess up the workflow… its kind of like a large interview except im assuming they are paid for it..

Well that is all good & great, but how about having people prove themselves by not leaving prototype iPhones at the local bars?
Just a thought! lol

No wonder their products cost so much. Seems their customers are subsidizing fake projects and non revenue generating activities. Obviously successful though.

"non revenue generating activities"
Ah ... with all the money Apple has ... they could probably start giving away their phones and still stay profitable with iTunes.
Who cares! Whatever Apple is doing ... fake or not ... it is obviously working. More power to them.

wow, the more we hear about apple's culture and how they treat their employees, the worse my opinion of them gets, and it wasnt all that stellar to begin with. WTF.. lol.

Eh, I disagree. If I owned a company as successful as Apple (and if as much of that success relied on secrecy like it does) I would do the same thing.
But that's just me and I don't trust anyone but myself. :)

which tech giant doesn't rely on tons of secrecy? this isn't security its paranoia and reconditioning

Everyone relies on secrecy but until the last year or two Apple has continued to amaze consumers with new products that have features that haven't been accomplished by other companies.
As much as I am an Android person I recognize that things like the MacBook Air and the first all touchscreen iPod are just great innovations on earlier technology that does require a certain level of secrecy that's different from other companies.
I can definitely find a lot to complain about Apple but something like this makes sense to me...

the MacBook air is nice but it wasn't revolutions from apple. that was the use of samsungs ssd technology, integration of other parts through evolution, and for apple's part.. a pretty design. the iPod touch Is nothing more than an iPhone without cell service... which existed years before the touch.
Ms does incredible things without treating their employees like untrustworthy dirt. have you ever seen the stuff they did for their "future home" concepts? electronic paint and all sorts of stuff. apple gets a lot of devoted fandom, but they don't actually take big leaps.

Then they should all be fired because they've all 'FAILED' to realize that iPhones are iFakes.

This is funny as Apple have obviously messed up and a blatant fake project ended up somehow getting released as a real phone called the 'Iphone 4s' !!
