    You'd rather a $100 tablet (they wouldn't have paid retail) than a decent bonus?

    I suspect if an employer is only going to splurge on what they can get a $100 tablet for, I put it to you that that's not a bad return on whatever the employer was about to give.

    Much better gift to give your employees than a store coupon for a turkey or ham.

    And you get what? A turkey? Or a lump of coal?

    Do these Ikea PlayBooks require assembly?

    haha. A couple of years ago, IKEA donated one full day's profit towards each of their staff. They got about $1,500 each. Then recently they split $80m amongst their 40,000 staff worldwide. $2,000 thank you.

    They have a history of looking after their staff. One store in Sweden gives their staff BMW's to drive for as long as they work there. A Playbook (whilst nice) is not the same as getting a $2,000 bonus. You could buy 20 Playbooks with that.

    Although, I guess they don't have to give anything.... so beggars can't be choosers.

    Chuckle... Who says they're getting PlayBooks instead of bonuses? Oh, That would be you.

    $ 2000.00 bonuses huh? You're right, Ikea is being horribly stingy when they typically hand this out every year! Bloody Swedish Scrooges, they can afford a Mercedes for every flat-pack warehouse stocker, but only give them a lousy tablet! I hope the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet To Come descend on Ikea upper management and turn them around on Christmas Eve, so the Cratchitts won't have to bridge to their outdated Curves to pull in a little wireless Christmas Cheer.

    Maybe they're getting a cash bonus as well as an electronic perk, mmmmmaybe? Nah, that wouldn't be it.
