    You might as well just give them the week off, because they will be useless the rest of this week.

    If any of my employees show up with an iPad I am going to fire them.

    Why?

    If it interferes with them working and they aren't doing their job, they should be fired, I agree

    You need to take your sarcasm detector in for adjustment.

    I've told my employees to pick on up and expense the purchase. We are going to make full use of them in our office!

    I see it as a tool to increase productivity!

    My employees can take time off, if they want. I am taking some time off myself. We had a really good year last year, and those iPads look like fun. We should have ordered a few thousand.

    Pity my poor employer -- I have to go to work on Saturday afternoon, after having just picked up my iPad that morning...... Guess how much my mind will be on my work?!!! LOL! I've decided I'm leaving the iPad at home, though, on this first day, rather than taking it with me, since I wouldn't be able to tinker with it except during my 15-minute break anyway. It will probably accompany me to work in the future, though.

    I'm going to take mine with me to work and let anyone interesting in seeing it, use it for a short period of time. I will also encourage anyone who likes it to purchase one.

    Where I work I am the person in charge.

    Mine is being delivered to me at work. I've already informed my supervisor that when it arrives I will take the rest of the day off as PTO (Personal Time Off). He used to it, as happened last year when I got my new iPhone. In return I've used my iPhone in unique ways at work that have saved him time and increased my productivity.

    I have been busting my butt this week at work building new servers and getting ready for business company next week. I am planning on taking a few days off, timing it around the 3rd / 5th. My boss's birthday party is saturday the 3rd, so I guess I need to figure out how to wait around for the delivery and also make the party. Hopefully it will be early instead of late.
