the manager was actuallly talking to me last week about a former employee who got fired for posting negitive stuff online lol.

pretty much was apple has rules that so so anal and annoying with product placement displays etc.( down to the measurements of sign placement in inches)

and we are not allowed to discuss the new ipad at all with any customers.
even know i have customers that want to order 25+ of them..
supposed to say i dont know when they are coming out, check apples website.

there just very frustrating.

i also had to take down all the huge new ipad posters i spent a day making cause we are not allowed to have any signage for them.

but whatever.
