Chained to a desk in a darkened room

These are the living conditions of the first iPads to venture outside 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino. According to Business Week, only a handful of carefully chosen developers are getting the opportunity to test their iPad apps on actual iPad hardware. The chosen few have to comply with multi-page agreements and even go so far as to provide photographic evidence that they are putting these extreme security measures in place.

While it's tempting to assume that these security requirements are in order to hide some previously unknown features of the iPad, it's more likely just Steve Jobs wanting to ensure that the launch day is as hyped as possible. If Apple can keep a secure lid on this thing right up until launch day we'll be amazed, but if anyone can, Apple can. "Radar about to be jammed!"
