    When you work for Apple you're not allowed to post on, or even visit, any Mac rumor sites. They make you sign a thing saying you won't. Or so I've been told...

    I hadn't heard that you couldn't visit them, but posting on them is a definite no-no. I'm not sure if its grounds for termination but its pretty close.

    The folks here at the Charlotte Apple Store have indicated to me that they are allowed to VISIT rumor sites, but they are forbidden to post ANYTHING, even non-related stuff. It's a terminable offense.

    They wouldn't assuming you don't do anything dumb like post on there from a computer in the Apple Store.


    Knowing this, I wonder if I got anyone fired at the Apple Store :D I took my brother to get his iPod exchanged and while waiting for the genius, I was killing time reading MR on one of the display computers. I hope the manager didn't go back and read the history and try to blame one of the employees

    No, you're not allowed to post here anymore, but nobody actually listens to that. Well correction, no sales person has to. If you're a corporate suit, I understand. It's probably for the best, and you shouldn't risk your job. However, as a sales rep, you won't know squat. :p Also, they could never find out unless you told people what store you worked at, which would be idiotic.

    There's a bunch of Apple employees who post/posted here.

    Best wishes to a fellow New Yorker. I've posted here several times while visiting Apple's Soho store and have also seen 3-4 others doing it. Because of that, it would be unlikely for blame to be assigned to the staff. As mentioned, given agreements that one has to sign as a condition of employment, it is foolish to be risky and then regret it afterwards.

    Good luck, t300. Since you can't stay here, you'll have to go to pcrumors.com instead! ;)

    Maybe the unthinkable ... like forcing him to wear a big "S" on his clothing identifying him as a Scientologist.
