LinkedIn CEO Just Gave All Employees an iPad Mini
It's LinkedIn employees' lucky day. LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner just gave every employee an iPad mini.
LinkedIn employee Darain Faraz, a communication manager at the company, tweeted about receiving the Apple device from his company and praised Weiner for the gift.
"That awesome moment when your CEO dishes out iPad minis to EVERY employee @LinkedIn @jeffweiner," Faraz said on Twitter.
Krista Canfield, a senior communication manager at LinkedIn, confirmed the news in a statement to CNBC.

"We wanted to acknowledge the hard work and accomplishments of all of our employees in 2012. During today's biweekly All Hands meeting, we surprised our employees with iPad Minis as a small gesture of the company's gratitude for their contributions," she said.
There are 3,458 full-time employees at LinkedIn, according to Canfield, which means LinkedIn spent a pretty penny for its generous gift.
Canfield confirmed that the employees received the 32 GB model, which retails for $429.
Let's hope LinkedIn cut a deal with Apple, because at full price that many iPad minis would cost $1.48 million.
