How Apple's secrecy was

I recently was browsing through the MacRumors archives and found some interesting articles just days before the originals iPhone announcement

It's so interesting to see how back when leaks were so rare and those that did were mostly fake.

I also found out that although no images leaked out of the the original iPad almost all the specs including screen size and the fact that it would use a ARM Cortex A8 chip with iOS apart from maybe the cameras or the name (iSlate, lol) however other media and most geeks believed that instead of the iOS device we were promised that we would get a Mac OS X running tablet priced at 999 hence all the Mac Tablet mockups before the iPad
