When Sony took the wraps off the Xperia Z1 at IFA 2013, most of the folks in the tech community already had the idea about the phone, except for the name which was previously rumored to be Honami.
Apparently Sony's not happy with the leaks, and is planning to tighten the belt in a bid to save the element of surprise. To do that, Sony is now putting posters on its offices reminding employees to avoid leaks. The poster, with a huge "No more leakage!" headline, details some guidelines to follow for confidential phones.
Among the rules include: do not use phones without protective cover, do not show phones to individuals outside of Sony Mobile (unless NDA is signed), do not upload any pictures to social networks, publicweb pages etc., do not use 3rd party benchmarking applications.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
