    Corrupt Apple Store Employees!

    Just where do you learn the work ethic to damage product and steal customer data? Are there no shift supervisors?

    I just got done reading about that on deadspin. Glad I didn't have anything bad on my laptop when I brought it in.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    Right, because I'm sure this stuff doesnt happen with other software companies. People can suck no matter who they work for.

    Re: Corrupt Apple Store Employees!

    Take a read at what is going on. First, any iPhone with a crack that is under warranty is going to be replaced with another phone as a matter of practice. So, if there are a bunch of cracked phones back there, they are all headed for either major refurb or the trash heap. So big deal. Good practice? No? If I were the manager I'd fire the lot. As for what parts they use to replace drives and other things with...Apple uses standard parts across the line. Unlike Dell who uses whatever parts are cheapest on the day they buy them, apple has particular drives for particular machines. These would be the only parts available to the apple store. Then you have people who are stupid enough to have illicit photos or video on their computer? Stupid. So, this whole story comes down to one drug dealer, one bad manager, and an ex employee who is a thief. Sounds like lots of places I've experienced in my lifetime.

    Lesson to all: never send your stuff in to get fixed. There are instructions for everything on the web. Buying a replacement screen is usually pretty cheap.
