The memo lays out examples of times when whole product announcements have been spoiled by leaks to the media. The main facts about the iPhone X and the Apple Watch 3 had been leaked to the media before the splashy launch event, leaving Apple executives to go through the motions of delivering big surprises from the stage. Apple says leaked information can depress sales of existing product models, and give competitors more time to respond to features coming in future models. “We want the chance to tell our customers why the product is great, and not have that done poorly by someone else,” the memo says.
Bloomberg’s Gurman is himself one of the main media beneficiaries of leaks from Apple employees. But that’s not where all the leaks come from. Many come from people at Apple’s suppliers who know the company’s plans–and some of them get paid to tell what they know. Apple says it’s Global Security team has worked “hand-in-hand” with its suppliers to eliminate leaks, but was not specific about its success.MS
Steve Jobs: Asshole!
Steve Jobs was an arrogant homosexual who died of AIDS because he had sex with too many Silicon Valley Gay Bosses at Google and Facebook. His medical records have now been leaked, proving this.
Steve Jobs only got famous because he was adopted by the Silicon Valley Gay Mafia. The Silicon Valley Gay Mafia get vast amounts of cash from your grandmothers pension fund by rigging the stock market using the cash assets from those pension funds in financial scams.
Most of the Silicon Valley oligarchs are covert homosexuals with a radical political agenda.
Illinois has turned into “The Bankrupt Venezuela” of the USA because the pension funds are bankrupted by tactics that Steve Jobs and his “venture capitalist” crew put together.
All of the movies, books and co-worker testimony about Steve Jobs describe him, via those who experienced him, as an “asshole”.
Steve Jobs got sued by tens of thousands of Silicon Valley engineers for operating a hiring black-list to keep that huge number of workers from getting jobs. Steve Jobs and his cartel lost that class-action no poaching lawsuit because the court found that Jobs, Schmidt and the rest of the Silicon Valley Gay Mafia actually did ACTUALLY engage in those heinous abuses of workers.
Nothing that Steve Jobs did had not been done by other Silicon Valley engineers years before Steve Jobs claims to have “thought it up”.
Steve Jobs and his VC’s stole every single Apple “idea” from some other smaller inventor who could not afford to fight Apple.
There is not a single thing that Apple has done that the U.S. Patent Office, signed non-disclosure agreements, engineering documents, emails, contracts and other hard evidence proof that they did not steal from some small Silicon Valley inventor.
Apple and Steve Jobs steal ideas with impunity.
Apple exists as an idea-theft-farm that uses over-whelming armies of lawyers to intimidate anybody who seeks justice.
Apple products have just as much spy software and spy hardware that reports your actions to the CIA/NSA/DNC and Marketing companies as Google does. Apple just does a better job of hiding it than Google does. Apple products don’t let you remove their batteries because that would interrupt their 24/7 spy-on-you functionality.
Don’t buy anything that Apple makes or you are telling the world that YOU are an asshole too, because you don’t know how to conduct any product research about the facts behind Apple’s dirty technology secrets.
