    My guess would be that Powells incident was unintentional if that would be the case that he doesn't get fired...

    Here's a quick&crappy translation of the article :

    Did Apple founder its Ipad-istorije 2010-04-26 | Posted 12: 06 | updated 13: 07 Apple have tough rules regarding its prototypes. It was an employee of the American computer giant recently experienced. He is now being fired for having lent its Ipad in two minutes to its founder Steve Wozniak.

    It is rarely it is leaking from the Apple. Thanks to tough rules on the company's products for the. sometimes, although a bit too far.
    A man with the initials A.J. took the liberty to show off an Ipad 3 g in connection with the Ipad model without 3 g was released.
    Got to play with Apple's surf-tablet was none other than the company's founder, Steve Wozniak. Two minutes he is reported to have had with the new Ipad.

    Wozniak, still employed by Apple, says that he does not even noticed that it was the 3 g version of the iPad that he got the test.
    He also said that he would have urged A.J. not to display it if he knew it was the 3 g version he had to do with; But it played no role. A.J. was fired with immediate effect.

    The fired employee knew the rules. He violated them and the if the punishment is what the policy dictates, then adios. Don't even think about working there again.
