Apple Employees and the iPhone Credit

There has been some information around the Internet that Apple recently fired about 800 of its employees due issues with the iPhone and their redemptions of the $100 credits. If you recall Apple offered a $100 credit to every early-owner of the iPhone. Apple promised a free iPhone to every full-time employee and every part-time employee who had been with the company for over a year, which included retail associates and Geniuses.
It is believed that the 800 or so Apple employees who were fired actually took advantage of the $100 credits on the free iPhones they had received from Apple, their employer. This totaled a loss of about $80,000 for Apple and they did not hesitate to fire the employees who attempted to "beat the system".
