    I've always wondered how we always see leaked Zune HD, PS3 Slim etc.. pics and almost never see any Apple product pics leaked until the day it's announced. I know their employees sign NDA'S but they must threaten death to those who leak info.

    In addition to very strict NDA's, rumor has it new/proto poducts are kept very secure, in passcoded areas with very limited access, etc.

    Other competing products are often announced, read: not leaked, months before release.

    they kept the space ship they hacked in Independence Day with that iBook and use recovered alien tech to secure future product models.

    Apple is a complete hardass and is completely overprotective of everything. I guess you have to be when your entire business model is based on the misconception that every other company in the world copies Apple's ideas. :rolleyes:
