Apple threatens to fire employee over viral video with millions of views

Published

on

Apple is threatening to fire an employee who posted a video on TikTok with basic iPhone security tips. According to Paris Campbell, she was told she violated company policy by identifying herself as an Apple employee and posting on Apple-related topics.

The company’s social media policy cautions employees against posting about customers, colleagues, or confidential information, but Apple doesn’t prohibit employees entirely from posting about the technology.

Campbell, a single mother living in New York, worked at Apple for six years. She currently works as a repair technician at an Apple retail store. Last week, she responded to a girl who lost her iPhone at Coachella and then received threatening text messages saying her personal information would be sold on the black market if she didn’t unlink her iPhone from her Apple ID.

“I can’t say exactly how I know this information, but I can say that for the past six years I have been working as a certified equipment engineer for a company that loves to talk about fruits,” Campbell told the girl and advised her not to listen to extortionists. Your phone is really useless to them and you are the only person who can save them. I suggest you don’t.”

This video went viral, reaching 5 million views in about 24 hours. On Friday, Campbell’s manager called and told her to delete the video or face disciplinary action “up to and including termination.”

Over the weekend, Campbell posted a second video titled “Dear Apple” in which she revealed she was an Apple employee and said she was waiting to be fired: “Before this video, I never identified myself as an Apple employee. It’s funny, though, after reading the social media policy… it doesn’t say anywhere that I can’t publicly identify myself as an Apple employee, it’s just that I shouldn’t do it in a way that makes the company look bad.”

Campbell, who has been doing stand-up since 2011, has 439,000 followers on TikTok. Campbell says her videos don’t contain any information that isn’t public.

“I think Apple’s reaction is exactly the opposite of how we portray ourselves as a company, inviting people to think in new ways, innovate and come up with creative solutions.” I have all this knowledge of Apple not only because I work at Apple. I know this because I have a technical background and experience. That’s why they hired me.”

Apple did not respond to The Verge’s request for comment.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive? Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

Will the new Intel processors really become much more

Intel Raptor Lake processors will be unveiled in a few hours, but now we have the opportunity to look at prices that may be in line with the recommended ones.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive?  Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

The fact is that the new items were lit up in the NewEgg store, and marked as recently released. Given the size and status of this network, it is possible that the prices listed there now correspond to those that Intel itself will reveal in a few hours.

And if so, then the same price increase that the company warned about earlier will take place.

  • Core i9-13900K – $660 ($70 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i9-13900KF – $630 ($65 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700K – $450 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700KF – $430 ($45 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600K – $330 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600KF – $310 ($45 more than its predecessor)

Thus, we will get a rise in price by 10-15%. If we talk about competition with AMD, then the Ryzen 5 7600X at a price of $300 is 10% cheaper than the Core i5-13600K, the Ryzen 7 7700X at a price of $400 is more than 10% cheaper than the Core i7-13700K, and the Core i9-13900K at a price of $630 is significantly more expensive than the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X, but significantly cheaper than the top-end Ryzen 9 7950X. We wrote about the performance of new AMD products yesterday.
