    I do not see how Apple would expect China not to copy their phone when it is made in China. The Chinese got to be laughing at us!

    It would not matter if they made them here, they would still copy it and release it BEFORE Apple could.:eek:

    They need extra security for drunk & forgetful prototype toting employees.

    If people see it early, people copy. Do you really want something you've been designing for ages only to have it leaked and copied by Chinese knockoffs before released to the public?

    It's a mutli-billion dollar companies most lucrative product. Yeah, i would hope they would want to keep it under wraps as long as possible.

    Haha, no one is ever going to forget the bar thing if Apple keeps letting it happen each year.
