Getting all excited about your company working on developing an application for Apple’s iPad tablet? Think you might get to try it out before its April 3rd release date? Think again.

BusinessWeek is reporting that before an iPad is sent to a potential software partner, they must set up a room with blacked out windows, and it must be tethered to a stationary object to ensure that doesn’t leave the room.  After all of this is set up, photographic evidence of the preparations must be sent to ensure that all measures have been accounted for.

All told, there are 10-pages to the agreement that developers must sign prior to receiving the tablet, which, honestly, makes no sense to us.  The iPad was on display at the public announcement of the device, and I know at least two people without invitations found a way into the room to play with them during the hands-on portion of the presentation.  Apple’s continued adherence to archaic secrecy rules seem more like marketing ploys than actual attempts at any type of security.

Don’t believe me?  Dozens of blogs, including us, have written up this story, adding even more mystery to this device before it launches, and also gets them a tremendous amount of free advertising.

We have no one to blame but ourselves for continually taking the bait, but, seriously, how could you not write up a room with blacked out windows for a product that will be released in two weeks?

    You see, these caregivers who have been growing marijuana for the black

    market all along, are planning on growing the

    full 12 plants per patient. Clubs, meetings, organizations, exercise, social engagements, family

    obligations and children’s activities may take up the majority of the spare time.
