    800, dare I say, ‘retarded’ Apple employees, have just been sacked for trying to cash in on the $100 rebate Apple provided to all iPhone owners after they dropped the price by $200.

    Those 800 though, seemed to have forgotten that they received those iPhones FOR FREE. Yes, in America, Apple provided all full-time Apple employees and part-time that had been working for 1 Year +, an Apple iPhone for free. But these employees figured they should get both the free iPhone, and the $100 rebate.

    Bad move. Just think about it. Apple have made the very right choice. These 800 employees proved to them, that if the opportunity strikes, and they have a chance to steal, that’s exactly what they will do.

    Haha, even Apple employees aren't perfect.
    But they sure are human!

    ..and you'd be out of a job + open to criminal prosecution (should Apple decide to prosecute, which they apparently aren't).

    Aren't you the kid who's worried about Icon Factory coming after him for using their icons?

    Case by case morality, I suppose...

    Who's looking for one? Expressing one's opinion doesn't automatically lead to an argument...that's something everyone learns sooner or later.

    Don't take things so personally - life will be a lot easier if you lighten up.

    INTERNET: SERIOUS BUISNESS


    and to keep on subject....I have to say though sometimes that ol' Apple in the tree of knowledge looks good every now and again.
    even though its wrong, we just want to grab it. hopefully this makes sense.

    Makes total sense to me...bright & shiny can be very attractive. That's where cause & effect comes into play. Was that $100 credit going to be worth the job they lost?

    EXACTLY. Very hard to feel sorry for wannabe thieves. Or the folks who'd "do it if they had the chance".
