Microsoft employees to get Oprah treatment

Written by Peter Scott

Surface tablets and Windows phones under the seat

Microsoft’s delightfully understated CEO Steve Ballmer announced Thursday that all 90,000+ Microsoft employees will get free Surface tablets, phones and new PC’s with Windows 8.

The Vole is proving generous, as each employee will get a Surface RT tablet, Windows Phone 8 handset and a brand new work PC of their choosing, ranging from desktops, laptops, ultrabooks to tablets.
