LinkedIn gives all 3,500 employees iPad minis
A spokesperson confirmed the gift, saying:
Given that LinkedIn just reported quarterly earnings that were $25 million higher than expected, the gift seems like a nice enough token of thanks. Word has it that LinkedIn went big with the gift as well, opting to give the employees the more expensive 32GB model, which retails for $429. If the company paid full retail for all of the iPads, the total bill would have been around $1.5 million.
