There are a lot of myths about Apple that tend to get bandied about without much basis in reality. That the company is serious about secrecy, however, isn't one of them.

The City of Cupertino recently approved plans for Apple to build a 21,468 square-foot, private, off-campus restaurant/cafeteria where employees of the company will be able to eat and congregate without fear of being looked at or eaves dropped upon by pesky normals.

“We like to provide a level of security so that people and employees can feel comfortable talking about their business, their research and whatever project they’re engineering without fear of competition sort of overhearing their conversations," Apple Senior Director of Real Estate Facilities Dan Whisenhunt said at a meeting of the Cupertino County Planning Commision. 

The restaurant will presumably feature tinted windows and a large bouncer named "Tiny."
