    That guy is acting like not keeping a secret is the end of the world.

    Damn, who cares about being surprised?
    I'm not a 6 year old who believes in Santa Claus
    I just want my computer, phone or other device to work well

    There is a difference between secrets and rumors.....I picked "They still keep secrets" As a company who keeps privacy at it's highest, i can't believe they Apple would *not* keep secrets...

    what secrets are we referring to ?

    Its harder then used to be, given how diverse their manufacturing is.

    Personally I'm with @MacDawg, its a nonissue since there are other facets to their products that take precedence, i.e.., quality and design

    So his points are unfounded rumors and that time an Apple emplyee lost the iPhone 4?

    Idiotic at best.

    He is the same idiot that wrote an open letter to Apple for that stupid thing on Twitter about the plurals.

    I wouldn't agree yes or no, but somewhere in between. Yes certain features or products are speculated/leaked but the implementation is often unknown until the official announcement. For example 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s. We knew it would be in the hardware but not how it would be used in software.

    The same will be true if Apple does announce new MacBook Pros at WWDC. We expect them, but only know of certain features they might have and not how it will all go together.

    The two poll options are too extreme, so my answer is yes and no.
