  1. Every Google employee will be getting a free Nexus S handset running the company's latest Android operating system. The device went on sale in the US last week and in the UK this week. As a result, it's not completely clear whether employees from around the world will get the device at the same time, according to Delimiter.

    It's just a galaxy S with no SD slot and a slightly curved screen.

    Is this really news? I mean, one would expect as much... Like:

    "This just in: Dunkin' Donuts' employees get free donuts!"

    Not only is it a freebie, but it's like one of the most coveted smartphones in the market now. Great to be a Google employee.
  5. Say what you will but Google could do like many other companies and not give anyone anything.

    On the heals of,I believe it was a $1000 dollar bonus and a 10% raise for all employees, I say this pretty good.

    Man, bonuses? I've only heard of those mythical things.

    Although I have some philosophical differences with them, maybe I should look into Google for my next job!

    Not even remotely... It doesn't even have an SD slot and it runs on hardware that will be outdated by January.
  8. @fpsgamerJR62 In order for this phone to be the most coveted phone in the US it would need to be CDMA. Instead its limited to T-Mobile and ATT.
