Apple Manager Arrested For Leaking Secrets

Well, the source behind a few of the recent Apple iPhone leaks may have just been arrested. Mercury News reports that Paul Devine, a global supply manager, accepted over $1 million in kickbacks from a variety of Asian iPhone and iPod accessory suppliers. He is being subjected to a federal indictment as well as a civil suit from Apple themselves.

Wire fraud, money-laundering & accepting kickbacks are all listed as parts of the 23-count indictment. Devine gave suppliers inside info that allowed them to better predict Apple's needs and costs and, in doing so, gave them an excellent bargaining position. Apple has issued a statement 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."

It's not known whether or not Devine's leaks were responsible for any of the recent iPhone 4 leaks. Hopefully, that information will come out during the court case.

About the Geek Mind

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.
