    Apple use to be the king of secrecy... What happened?

    Is it me or are all there products getting leaked now?

    ie:

    iPhone 3G ( leaked )
    New Nano ( leaked )
    New Macbook Pro ( most likely an accurate leak )

    I remember Apple always being really tight with this stuff. The first iPhone
    never had an actual leak, Lately it seems everything is being leaked and
    lately has been accurate.

    What do you guys think? Is because of the jump in popularity its harder to keep it under lock and key?

    They hired a boatload of wankers who can't keep their mouths shut. That's what happened.

    Oh, someone has a better explanation?

    yea, the lawyers used to fight every little leak, now they just let it go. its either bc they a) cant keep up with all the leaks/rumors or b) think the hype is good for them.

    they love the hype and attention, wouldnt you if you were a company?
