I see that someone got their little hand caught in the cookie jar for some kickbacks in exchange for information on Apple.
It appears, front the sites I read, it’s Apple supply manager Paul Shin Devine. I would like to pose a question. Why the hell do we have to know his middle name. I mean really, as soon as someone is trouble with the law, bam, start using his middle name, why, because it’s just something we do.
Anyway, yeah, so homeboy here was caught selling some secrets to people in, dadadadaahh, Asia. Well really no where else make accessories for Apple products so Asia is the only place that would buy these so called secrets.
Well, really none of this surprises me. Really the dude needed to be smarter hiding the money. No I do not condone this behaviour but I can’t stop it and it will keep happening.
This relates to China is a couple of ways. Well I think it does. One, Apple is massive, so if I can start pumping out cases before anyone else does, bam, money in the bank. Like the guy who “found” the new Iphone in a bar, well, he could of done several things with it. He chose the one that didn’t make him much money. Am I saying I would do what he did, no, just saying that I wouldn’t of sold it for 5000$ or whatever it was.. Worth more than that.
It also relates because of this kick back thing. Yeah I’ve written about it before. Factories using suppliers but want a 20% kickback for “still using them” as a supplier. Actually it’s quite brilliant. I don’t think that it’s illegal here. Well, maybe it is. I’m not for sure.
Anyway I just thought that a guy that got caught selling secrets to Asia was interesting. Anyway.
It’s raining and I have to go buy an umbrella.
