Over the years Apple has done its utmost to keep details regarding their latest creations quiet, however it seems as if one Apple employee was selling details to accessory manufacturers to make himself extremely rich.
A global supply manager for Apple has recently been arrested for money laundering, his name is Paul Shin Devine and he is being accused of accepting over $1 million in exchange for specific details regarding upcoming iPod and iPhone devices.
It is believed that both the FBI and the IRS participated in this investigation, they uncovered an elaborate scheme which involved US and International bank accounts along with details regarding the recipients of these leaked details, such as Andrew Ang of Singapore, who has something to do with supplying materials for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
An Apple spokesperson had this to say on the matter “Apple is committed to the highest ethical standards in the way we do business. We have zero tolerance for dishonest behavior inside or outside the company”.
