Microsoft gifts full-time employees with Surface tablets, Windows 8 phones and PCs
Reprising a Windows Phone 7 giveaway from back in 2010, Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer announced at the company's annual event that all 90,000 or so full-time employees are getting a taste of its latest hardware. That's one Surface for Windows RT tablet and Windows Phone 8 phone (last time around these came with two year contracts)
Forbesindicates those PCs can be a desktop, laptop, ultrabook or tablet, and engadget.com has a pic of one employee's new Lenovo-built slate running Windows 8 on a Core i7 CPU with 8GB of RAM. Pulling an Oprah, again, isn't just one way to improve employee morale, it also ensures everyone's familiar with the new products as they roll out and are ready to tell people about them.

Will that provide the necessary bump to catch up with the competition from Apple and Google? Comment below!

... and hate it
Here is one way to get people to use Windows Phone and Windows 8
Provided each employee given the device, is obliged to sign an "act of telling everybody around how good the device is and non disclosure of how bad it is in fact". They (the employees) should demand a better salary on the grounds of additional hard (unhealthy) labour.

the best way to get people to buy windows 8 is to get a high shool girl hi and put her on a Windows comershal about how a mac ate her paper.
Bravo! Well played, sir. Well played.

Just look on the internet for photo's of Ballmer almost crying...
He isn't pleased Windows 8 is not very popular and there are almost no sales comparing to Windows 7.
Who wants that new ugly UI of Windows 8 anyway...
I'm pleased ;-)
