Erst kürzlich verlor ein Apple-Mitarbeiter seinen Job, weil er auf Facebook über sein „jesusPhone“ klagte:

The employee said of one app: ‘F***ed up my time zone for the third time in a week and woke me up at 3am? JOY!!'

The disillusioned worker also poked fun at the company's tagline when it offered Beatles songs on iTunes, which read: ‘Tomorrow is another day. That you'll never forget.' He posted: ‘Tomorrow's just another day that hopefully I will forget.'

Mr Crisp, who is in his 20s, was sacked from his job as a specialist in the computer giant's Chapel-field store in Norwich after a colleague – who was also a Facebook friend – told his boss about the posts.

Focusing on the Facebook posting situation, Apple is very clear that posting anything insulting or that casts Apple in a negative light is against policy. Furthermore, Apple says that employees should “remember there may be consequences to what you post or publish online including discipline if you engage in conduct that Apple deems inappropriate or violates any Apple policies.” Apple also says “be thoughtful about how you present yourself in online social networks. The lines between public and private, and personal and professional are blurred in online social networks.” Apple's rules say to use your best judgment, and the Facebook rant clearly isn't following any judgement.
