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.

Some punters are calling Steve Ballmer the new Oprah and describing Microsoft as the best company ever. We are not sure Google or Apple employees would agree, but then again their gear is flying off store shelves, so their outfits don’t have to hand it out for free.
