Default A rare photo ...



This photo was taken in a high security area deep inside Apple headquarters in Cuptertino, CA.

It is a lab/shop where prototypes are built, a preview of Apple's future plans. For obvious reasons only select Apple employees are allowed in the area, and no outsiders at all. Cameras are absolutely forbidden.

Yet, this obvious outsider seems to be wandering freely, and has her picture taken. Industrial espionage?

At first I thought that someone was actually doing work in John's shop- top secret area of Apple is much more believable!

Gee, I wish I had known you wanted one, I tossed out several just last week.

Ann snagged a new iPhone 6 on her last visit. She loves it.

Now that's funny!

Just to be clear, I have never been in that area, nor has any other member of the family. My son-in-law never talks about what goes on in there, all very hush hush.

I was surprised to see that Danica got in, but I guess she has special influence over dad.

So sad, Apple is using Child labor all over the world, even in their headquarters....
She DOES look a little disgruntled if you ask me...
