There’s been a lot of hullabaloo around the recent iPhone 4G leak, if only because leaks like this are so rare from Apple. Everyone expected Gray Powell, the engineer responsible for leaving his prototype iPhone in a bar where it could be picked up by just anyone, to experience the full wrath of Steve Jobs. He’s still employed though, and as the Woz has it, Powell hopefully won’t be going anywhere.
Wozniak dropped by Gizmodo to offer his thoughts on Apple security, leak prevention, and employee termination. Woz was recently up close and personal with an employee term, after a retail associate showed him the iPad after midnight on launch day, apparently enough of a no-no to get himself canned.
Maybe the best quote from the whole thing is this: “Product secrecy is good for Apple and should be strictly enforced, but maybe 10% of niceness and 90% of strictness is OK too.”
