Yo, r-tard, the memo says they cannot buy apple products WITH COMPANY FUNDS. uhDURR. A ford dealership isn't going to reimburse a sales manager for buying a chevy. uhDURR. They aren't saying "don't buy apples novelties at all", they're saying "don't do it with company funds." Derp.
I actually thought you'd say this, but I also thought "nah, not even chickentard is that goddam stupid." Well, thanks for proving me wrong.

I would encourage the author of the article to not misrepresent the quote he is paraphrasing so badly. It seems many of your readers are getting the impression that Microsoft is telling its employees that they cannot buy Apple products in general, while the quoted memo is stating that Microsoft employees should not use department/corporate funds to buy Apple products. An important distinction.

Edit: The title clearly does state with the company's money, but the article itself still suggests otherwise.
