David Shayer was there sitting on his desk in the year 2005, then suddenly his boss’s boss came to his desk. He offered him something so very good, it was s special assignment. In that special assignment of company, he has to help the US government in the creation of top-secret iPods.

Shayer can be considered as the early software engineer who is involved in the creation of the first iPod. Further, Shayer claims that along with him two other people were there who knew about this project. The two people who knew about the project were Vice President of iPod division and Senior Vice President of the Hardware. All those involved have since left out the company, he said. Shayer says that this was a secret project that is why very few people were knowing about this.

Probing further, Shayer says that he met two engineers from Bechtel, a US defense contractor and he was told that they are going to build the iPod. The main work of his was to provide assistance that was needed from the Apple as these were the iPods that has to look very much similar to the regular iPods. Along with similarities in views, its functions should also remain the same as regular iPods. But one thing that these iPods needed was custom hardware so that data can be recorded through it and not detected by any average user. He claims that these are the features that the US governments need in the top-secret iPod.

Shayer says that however, it wasn’t a collaboration with Bechtel, but yes Apple was doing favor under the tables for the Department of Energy. There was no comment on this topic by Apple, Bechtel, and Department of Energy, he says. In addition, he says that the two Bechtel engineers never exactly found what kind of hardware should be there. But they were looking to add it to secret iPod and that too very much carefully. They just have a theory that they need to build a stealth Geiger counter for measuring down the radioactivity.
