    According to conversations he had with Apple employees, the company puts fresh recruits on dummy projects for a while to test their how trustworthy they are:

      As long as you are getting paid and don't mind the work .. who cares? The money spends the same...

      Apple isn't the only company to do this. They're not necessarily fake products, but rather experimental products that may never see the light of day. Either way, the employees are being paid just as usual and if any leaks are found, they're easily traced to the trial employees.

      This article, most notably the title, is full of terrible grammar and poor sentence structure.

      i don't think ! i just don't buy that, after weeks or months of interviews & being under pressure when tested on reaction attitude & on straight FWD thinking , i bet nobody would ever screw up on their first day or week. even a competitor sending engineers & post-graduated to Apple for unlawful activity, would take several months b4 being taken into project design & therefore working on a whole pile of cleaning tasks for others' initially , all about bits & pieces hardly making sense for it is impossible to understand the project. employees introducing & taking into Apple their mates wouldn't even think stop watching their back & beside that, most projects design (the engineering part) are not even at apple's premises but outsourced at some other company. in a way it's like directing a orchestra, musicians do already know what to do & the best skill required is the ability to fit in. (university education). the real threat is in connection with cleaners, maintenance, security guards who might just get the chance to access technical documents for someone forgetting to log out their computer. marc

      i DO NOT think & i don't buy the story. after weeks or months of interviews & after being under pressure when tested on reaction attitude & on straight FWD thinking, nobody would ever screw up on their first day or week. cleaners or maintenance or security guards are more likely to be the ones who could access copyrighted info & data when someone doesn't log out their computer.a competitor sending engineers & post-graduated to Apple for unlawful purpose would take several months b4 actually start seeing real project design & therefore working on a whole pile of "cleaning" tasks for others initially.( all about bits & pieces hardly making sense for it is impossible to understand the project by looking at parts). most projects design then (the engineering part) are outsourced at some other company then reviewed at apple. in a way it's like directing a orchestra, musicians do already know what to do & the essential skill required is the ability to fit in.

      Apple is just looking out for it's interests. Might seem extreme but very much needed. Never know if a spy from samsung tries to infiltrate!
