    "Once they suspect a leak, the special forces — as we call them — will walk in the office at any hour, especially in the mornings. They will contact whoever was the most senior manager in the building and ask them to coordinate the operation."


According to Tom, cellphones are confiscated and checked for any suspicious activity, while employees activate their screensavers to prevent unauthorized chats during the security crackdown.

    "It is like a gag order, and if the employee does not want to participate, they are basically asked to leave and never come back," claimed Tom.

    "I was at several events. When they find what they are looking for—which they usually do—the person is asked to stay until the end of the business day. Then he is asked to leave the premises quietly, escorted by security."

    Its funny that despite the fear of this happening so much stuff has been getting leaked recently. I suppose it must come from outside suppliers most of the time rather than actual employees. I know that if I worked for Apple I wouldn't risk my job by leaking stuff.

    No kidding. What purpose does it serve? I'm assuming any job with Apple is a pretty good one, so I wouldn't risk it for something stupid like tablet revelations. If word got out in the industry that it was you, do you think another similar company is going to hire Capt. Loose Lips?

    I think I see a lot of leaks from suppliers, so that probably is the case.
