The Consequences of The Apple Leaks – The lives affected by internet clout chasers

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

So likely if you've been paying attention to the last couple of weeks or even all of this year to the apple leaks and rumors that have been happening you know that we know so much about the upcoming devices from apple the devices that were just recently released devices that were released earlier in the year like we know all the things that have known all the things but a lot of questions come out as to how and why do we know these things how do we know them so far in advance and what exactly is going on right now

And how are all these leakers popping up on twitter that didn't exist last year there's a lot to kind of go through here and um even some like actual consequences to when someone leaks and then gets caught and it's not good i i guess i'm going to tell you all about it right after this what up players welcome back and for all you new people welcome my name is travis and i do tech videos every single week and have a blast doing what that sounds like fun to you

Sit back relax and enjoy the video anything i talk about will be in the description below but for now let's just get into the video 2020 has been the year of like everything terrible like everything terrible in this world that could happen has happened from murder hornets to covid to just everything terrible and for apple it's been a bit of a mixed bag they've had so many leaks about their hardware this year i'm sure they're thinking 2020 can go away real soon

I'm guessing they're wanting to flush the toilet on as well but here's the thing when you leak a product when you leak something there are consequences i want to talk about those consequences but before we get into that i want to talk about why these leaks happen and how they're happening first of all i used to work for a multi-billion dollar company that actually manufactures and sells electronic devices so i totally was in a position where i could have leaked things to people and it was kind of exciting to know about

Things that no one else in the world knew about and you kind of wanted people to know but i also knew it wasn't worth my job matter of fact if you've ever signed an nda it's more than just your job in the case of john prosser he's dealing with people on a very high level of access to devices and products and and everything uh the likes of which have not been seen very often listen there's been leakers and leaks for many years across every single

Industry but this year especially with apple we're seeing some really crazy leaks really early so let's talk a little bit about how and why and then the consequences of which has happened recently and it's kind of terrible first of all why well when i used to know about these things and i used to watch tech youtube i wish that i could be that guy to tell those tech youtubers something cool that i knew about that they covered but i knew that in looking at the nda that i had signed that not only could i

Get fired for that because obviously i can't even take the credit for saying that i leaked it to someone otherwise i definitely will get fired and lose my well-paying job but depending on what i would leak i could get sued i i can't afford to get sued some of these companies have you absolutely over a barrel if you decide to leak some information it does actual damage to that device and i don't mean physical damage but

To that release maybe it compromises their standing in the industry maybe another company gets some of the information about it and is able to make a better version they're coming after you for damages the risks are insane and that's just if you're willing to risk your job for a little bit of clout like that's one thing but to go to actual court and potentially lose every single bit of money you will ever make in your life it ain't worth it and every company has this basically signed into their ndas

They're going to give you access to devices and products that aren't quite released they want to make sure you're not going to tell anyone about it so why are people doing it now just like i said they want a little bit of that clout they're excited about the products they're dealing with they want people to know about it before they're supposed to know about it and the real problem is those leaks the news from it is absolutely massive the amount of people that read those leaks watch the videos for them

The numbers are ridiculous so of course you kind of want a little bit of that fame touch that fame a little bit let me touch that fame if you're a youtuber you're actually making money off of these leaks not directly but indirectly by making the video now the thing is this is where it becomes a little bit tricky most good reporters do not pay their leaked sources as a matter of fact they don't even necessarily look for sources the sources then come

And look for them that's the kind of backwards thing here again it's all down to human nature you want a little bit of clout so you want to help someone out maybe you're a big fan of jern and you just want to tell them a little shop and that adrenaline that runs through you when you see your new story hit a front page tech video sometimes is unmatched or a mark german article whatever the case may be but there are very real risks there's a story that mark german once leaked something

That got someone fired and then when the memo went out about the person getting fired he leaked that too that's some savage stuff right there that is some savage stuff let's talk about the recent leak with front page tech where john was trying to release a video of the new headphones from apple by using a 3d render to basically protect his source that's one of the things that a real leaker needs to do protect your source the best way to do that is make some type of proxy if

Someone sends you a video of something you make a 3d render or a completely different fake version of it to give the general idea to the audience without compromising your source somehow some person got that on twitter some guy who thinks he's a leaker got that information and leaked it and he doesn't have to protect his source because it wasn't really the direct source and he i think is just a just a twitter guy and i don't think he really cares if you're making your everyday living off of this type of

Content you're going to protect your sources so they can get you what you need you're invested in them as much as they are invested in you you are a safety two-way kind of directional thing going on if you're just some dude on twitter just sharing stuff it just gets you more followers that's there's no risk who cares now let's be clear there's a lot of pressure on the actual leaker or reporter whatever you want to call them themselves they've got to make sure that they validate

At least three sources before they release it this is why again a professional versus some average ordinary person on twitter is of a different level not only that they got to make sure that it's actually going to happen because if they put something out and it doesn't happen then you're not really that good of a source anymore and everyone's going to leave you because the reality is is you're only as good as your last leak and if your last leak was nothing people are going to look at you with

That big-ass side eye the amount of stress that goes into being a leaker whether it means being a leaker from the company side or from the youtuber or or even the journalist side is super high the pressure is on there are so many eyes on every single leak everyone has interest even the mainstream media is sometimes interested in the latest leak about these devices so we're talking about eyes that don't normally see a lot of this content

If you talk about the new iphone 12 i mean everyone's going to want to know there are plenty of people who've established themselves as accurate leakers and you know who they are if you go on twitter and you see some person who has maybe a couple thousands of followers and you never really heard of him before there's probably a reason for that there's a lot of people online right now trying to gain clout from established other leakers and reporters and i get it there's so many

Eyes on everything so much interest you could get your fame if you can get the right leak but you could also destroy someone's life so i really hope you consider that and pay attention to that before you leak the latest thing that you did no research on so unfortunately he actually leaked the video of the headphones rather than the 3d render that front page tech was going to release in their video and allegedly this has gotten six people fired

First of all i can't stand when people lose their job over stupid stuff i actually don't like people losing a job at all i kind of get triggered about it makes me feel bad but what really disappoints me about this what's really aggravating is that apparently four of them didn't even know what the hell was going on let me say that again apparently only six people knew about the video or at least had access to be able to make that video that i guess happened in china but four of them

Had nothing to do with the leak completely clueless imagine walking into work one day the job that you love doing some cool stuff playing with some new apple gadgets and they sit you down in a room and send you packing and you did nothing wrong this is the part that absolutely blows my mind and people that are not professional uh journalists or leakers or whatever the case may be who have nothing to lose are now ruining other people's lives i'm

Not talking about the people who made a decision to leak the device or the product or whatever the video i'm talking about innocent bystanders who maybe work in the same department and get caught in the crossfire in the middle of this global pandemic wherein coming by certain jobs especially high-level jobs it's kind of hard anyway if you lose your pretty good paying job with apple you're going to be kind of upset by the way i don't know what the laws are in china but my guess is they're probably not going to work for any high-tech

Company over there ever again so the real dangers of this aren't necessarily when you're leaking what if someone on your team maybe someone you don't even like leaks it gets you fired from a job maybe that is your dream job helping you pay the mortgage the rent putting food on your table and it gets taken away from you it's not very fair and i really hate that so much of this is really pushed by human ego the desire for clout that's right these leakers and i'm not talking

About the reporters i'm talking about the people in the company who are leaking the actual information are looking for this thing that they can't have by the nature of leaking the information you cannot be known so what's the point and listen i'm gonna watch all the leaks and everything i like that stuff and i'm not saying this is gonna stop anything but where i have a problem with it is if you absolutely are against leaking and you

Still reap the consequences of someone else's actions we maybe we should stop this and i'm sure some of you are going to have some thoughts in the comments below feel free to leave some comments down there at the end of the day leaks are not going to stop it is interesting but i thought when i heard this about people getting fired who had nothing to do with the leaks that really hurt me that really kind of upset me so i wanted to make this video i hope that that was something that

Was worth the time i hope you learned something with that anyway i'm going to tell you about some of these videos over here i haven't shot a video in like two weeks so i don't remember what videos i've done recently just watch one of these and i'll see you next time peace love
