Remember the kerfuffle over the iPhone prototype that an Apple engineer left in a restaurant and ended up on the blog Gizmodo? Well, Apple has a plan to stop this kind of thing from ever happening again.
No, Apple is not installing a self-destruct sequence on their prototypes - rather, it is going to construct its own restaurant exclusively for Apple employees:
According to Apple’s director of real estate facilities, Dan Whisenhunt, the construction of the two-story restaurant is a direct result of security concerns: “We like to provide a level of security so that people and employees can feel comfortable talking about their business, their research and whatever project they’re engineering without fear of competition cort of overhearing their conversations. That is a real issue today in Cupertino because we’ve got other companies here in our same business,” he told the Planning Commission, leaving out the part about employees also tending to leave sensitive prototypes of future releases in public for random people to find and sell to websites, causing all manner of embarrassment to the company.
