Kickbacks at Apple?

I am a little astounded, and as someone who sells technology appalled: Apple manager indicted on kickback charges:

(Apple Manager) Devine, 37, is accused of accepting more than $1 million in exchange for providing confidential information to Apple suppliers in Asia. The suppliers allegedly used the information to negotiate favorable contracts with Apple, which is based in Cupertino.
Right now the companies involved are saying that they did not know this guy worked at Apple and were buying "consulting services". That just happen to help them win contracts at Apple.
