| end up costing one Best Buy worker his 
| part-time job. Brian Maupin, of Missouri, 
| recently posted two videos making fun of 
| iPhone and Evo acolytes, respectively. 
| Although neither video made explicit 
| reference to his employer, managers at the 
| Independence, MO Best Buy decided to 
| suspend him from his duties after Maupin 
| refused their polite suggestion that he 
| quit. As the AP reports, Maupin now risks 
| losing his job over a pair of videos that 
| have each garnered over 1.6 million and 
| 340,000 views, respectively. (Videos
