I will venture a guess that a significant portion of those people work in sales.

It's been done before.
Likewise, our company bought each of us an iPad 3. Admittedly, it might be easier given there's only about 25 of us.

I found my current job because of LinkedIn. I received a status update that a friend of mine had changed jobs. I called him up to see what was going on. We met and discussed the company and what I could do for them and eventually got the job. Was so happy to leave my previous job.

Probably not. But say they are getting 20% off. That's still $136 difference per unit on the 32GB models. Taken out over their work force that's still $476k.

Unemployed people pay monthly or annual membership fees in order to secure a job. I find that a tad, ironic.

That's a +1 MIO $ publicity stunt... Interesting as it got quite covered by the press. Meh, when I offer a day off to performing employees, nobody talks about it.

You're lucky. I was made redundant last year. They then promptly readvertised my job (Clue: that's illegal) while trying to butter me up by inviting me to reapply. Guess what - the person they hired after me quit after 2 months on the job. Now they're looking for replacement number 3 while I'm happily doing my own thing and getting some recognition for it.

3,501. Got an offer from LinkedIn today. A day late and a dollar short. Oh well.
