To guard its most coveted secrets, Apple employees have to play dress-up when working on certain projects. Gathering information from a former Apple employee, The New York Times reported:
"Some Apple workers in the most critical product-testing rooms must cover up devices with black cloaks when they are working on them, and turn on a red warning light when devices are unmasked so that everyone knows to be extra-careful."
In my mind, the innermost recesses of Apple's headquarters look like they're being patrolled by Organization XIII from the Kingdom Hearts series. It's a bunch of creepy people in long, flowing black robes slinking around in a menacing way. And yes, I know that the ex-employee said that the devices are covered up, but in my head the employees working on them wear matching cloaks. I'm positive that the team working on the rumored Apple tablet uses a setup similar to the one I envision.
What do you think of Apple literally shrouding its prototype hardware? Is it excessive? Is it appropriate? Or is it just so ridiculous that you can't believe it actually happens?
