A Taste of Apple!

Now, Apple employees will get new Macs with $500 off, and $250 will be struck off new iPads. The only condition is that the employees who can avail this opportunity should have been employed at Apple for at least 90 days and the deal can be availed once in three years. The current discount for Apple employees on Macs is 25%, hence $500 off them is a pretty neat deal. This discount, however, does not include the Mac mini, and this is understandably so, because the Mac Mini is priced around $569.
The new perks have been announced just after the best report of its earnings ever by Apple was released on Wednesday. Apple had announced that it has earned a record $38.85 billion in the biggest quarterly report of its history. Indeed it is a big report as the company has doubled its profits as compared to last year. In this quarter, Apple has sold 37.04 million iPhones which is an increase of 128% compared to the same period in the previous year. It has also sold 15.43 million iPads, which has seen an 11% increase in sales.
Tim Cook's email to his employees read as follows:
"Thanks to everyone's hard work, we're off to a great start in 2012. Last week in New York we launched a groundbreaking initiative for education with iBooks textbooks, and today we reported the strongest quarter in Apple's history."
