    Okay, so the iPhone price dropped $200, from $500 to $300. In a day. Smooth. That money then went to finance all the iPhones given out for free to full-time Apple employees.

    Anyway, in order to console all their customers who got ripped off while the phone was still $500, Apple is now giving $100 gift coupons, to be used in Apple stores, on iPhone paraphernalia, to everyone who bought their phone while it was still $500.

    So a couple of the aforementioned employees reasoned thusly: "I got an iPhone while it was still $500, gimme coupons for stuff". 800 employees in total, to be exact.

    That reasoning turned out to be a bit fuzzy, being severely impeded by greed, because, turns out, they might now get brutally sacked. [​IMG]

    Some might say Apple did all this as a sort of elimination process, to get rid of idiots among their staff. At an exchange rate of 1 iPhone per idiot, it was totally worth it.

    Serves them right. One must know where the limit is and how to keep within the limit. I'm glad they receive their proper penalties, otherwise as they say, "give him a foot and he'll ask for a mile"

    Apple are a bunch of greedy bastards anyway and sell everything overpriced. They deserve to be ripped off. They should put it down to experience and not fire anyone.
