    I am not sure how long it takes to manufacture 1 million iPhone (or a large of them), have them go through inspection and put them in boxes, etc... but this has to have started a least a few weeks ago. But we got nothing. I know it's manufactured in some asian country when there is not as much hype about this phone as in the U.S. and the employees in that facility might not care too much but come on, I cannot believe that there was no leak whatsoever, nada...
    How is that even possible?

    Because Apple are very good at keeping things under wraps.
    I worked at an LG plant for a few years. During that time they had a contract for 15" tubes for the G3 iMacs.
    The staff who worked on the iMac line had to sign NDAs. The line was separated from the other production lines and non iMac staff weren't allowed near the line. I was a supervisor of a CRT process. If there were defects showing up in completed iMacs they used to bring examples out without the casings on.
    This was just before they released the 5 fruity colours.

    I think most chiniese working in the factory in china do not have access to a computer, probably does not read English, and is too worried about not meeting their daily quota to want to worry about losing their job over an image. They make.... like 2$ a day?

    actually, afaik from the docus ive seen, workers never come in contact with the diamonds at any part of the process...at least where one could actually get a real diamond sneakily, you aint walking out with a chunk of ore hoping its got some glitter in it!

    If the workers in the factories aren't getting paid much then they probably don't have a camera or camera phone. Even if they did what would be the point of taking a picture and risking your job, its not like anyone is going to pay for an image of an iphone being stuffed in an box.

    Also, I doubt any Mac Fan boys work at the plant, so for them its probably just another day at the packing plant.

    they are made in chinese factories, chinese people are a hellva lot stricter than american factories. if you screw up or even hint at screwing up, you get canned to death (im only half joking, you really get beaten up though if you screw around and not work)

    I dont understand how you can even come up for reasons when you dont understand China.
    First China is a communist country so they dont have luxuries (trust me, your probably thinking of hong kong which is not china and they have luxuries) Plus communist counties divide the money so even if a worker makes 2 dollars it doesnt mean they will get 2 dollars and hour. they will get 2 dollars + depending on the average made in the country. so a 4 dollar salary worker will have to give up a dollar for the 2 dollar worker to get a total of 3 dollars per person.

    stop talking about china
    who cares about secret spy photos.. look the iphone is coming out june 29th
    apple have shown you pictures from day 1 (jan 9th)
    what kinda secret **** do you want? naked photos of the iphone giving jobs a blow?
