       and free pretzels to anybody who can define "experimental prototype".

       Isn't there one of these somewhere close to Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, CA, USA?

       Not once Jobs finds out about it. Then it will be a smoking crater that nobody will want to talk about.

       what the Toaster said. i'll be there after work with my prototype htixmerazzer that i constructed while on my lunch break today. it may look like a crumple of paperclips and waste paper to some, but it looks like a free drink to me.

       Seeing as how I'm an experimental prototype myself, do I get free drinks for life?
Alterother, Sep 16 2011
  

       As one who gets paid for helping transform Sales and Engineering's fantasies into deliverable realities, I would suggest that at some point you were grandfathered in as "released product", and therefore have to cadge drinks like the rest of us.   

       And are there going to be any documentation requirements for these prototypes, or will cocktail napkin sketches be accepted? (I've actually found cocktail napkin sketches on file as controlling documentation).

       [Alterother] - yep, free drinks for life. Drink quick, though, because there's a high possibility of a "disassembly for reverse engineering" step.

       "Hey, I heard that the bar down the street is offering 4 for 1 drinks. In fact, here is a copy of their business plan I swiped..."
