Apple is one of the top companies for computers as well as mobile entertainment devices. As we all know every company does like it’s secrecy when it comes to making new products. Recently Wall Street Journal was able to uncover a new story which uncovers an employee of an Apple supplier whom was indicted for leaking Apple’s secrets to a colleague. What he uncovered was the codename “K48.” He was fired simply for revealing this seemingly harmless codename which would do nothing more than indicate that Apple was working on a new product. The product K48 which was leaked in a phone conversation was actually the codename for the iPad. It is not necessarily too much to be surprised over when a company fires someone over revealing secrets, however to do it over a codename does seem a tad bit extreme.
