Apple hidden documents

Apple has a rare sense of humor or should we say that the tech company from Cupertino like to use his OS to hide some peculiar documents as “examples” in this case we are referring about the “examples” documents that you can find in the folder of the in your MacOS. In that side of your MacOS you could find a copy of the Bitcoin Whitepaper, the document that start it all, as a few singular images.

Hidden images


The Bitcoin whitepaper is a document written by an individual or group of individuals under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, which was published on October 31st, 2008. It outlines the design and technical specifications for the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin.


The whitepaper describes Bitcoin as a decentralized digital currency that uses cryptography to secure and verify transactions and allows for peer-to-peer transactions without the need for intermediaries such as banks or payment processors. The paper also explains how the Bitcoin network operates, how new coins are created through a process called mining, and how transactions are recorded on a public ledger called the blockchain.


The Bitcoin whitepaper has become a foundational document in the cryptocurrency industry and has been the basis for the development of many other cryptocurrencies and blockchain-based applications. It is widely available online and is often referenced by developers, investors, and enthusiasts as a key resource for understanding the fundamental principles of Bitcoin and blockchain technology.


It’s not clear why does Apple use this document as “examples” but is interesting that the company of Cupertino play those games, if you want to see the whitepaper this is the way to do it:

open /System/Library/Image/Capture/Devices/


Another way to see it is to open Finder, click on Macintosh HD at the bottom of the window, then System - Library - Image Capture - Devices. There, right click on (Opens in a new tab) and choose "Show Package Contents." Open Resources and click on "simpledoc.pdf."


In the same folder you can find another kind of singular documents as an image in a PDF document called "numbers.pdf," containing only four numbers in very large typeface, as well as a mysterious image called "cover.jpg," which is a photo that appears to have been taken on Treasure Island in San Francisco.
