New Perk Gives Apple Employees 50GB of iCloud Storage

Apple has introduced a new perk for Apple employees, giving them a free 50GB upgrade to their iCloud storage -- a $100/year value. This is similar to the free MobileMe subscription that employees received until last year when iCloud replaced that service. The standard iCloud account includes 5GB of storage.

Earlier this year Apple employees were granted a new discount on Apple hardware, offering employees $500 off a Mac (excluding the Mac mini) or $250 off an iPad -- and that discount was recently extended to the Retina MacBook Pro as well.

Without iDisk, what really is the point of having more than 5GB?

Unless you are a photofreak there is no way you are gonna hit even close to the limit

Can someone explain to me why the Apple employees feel entitled to "perks"? Are they not being paid to do their job? I don't understand why people feel entitled to freebies nowadays. They already get a very generous discount. I guess it's just the world we live in.


It's not about entitlement. It's about showing your employees appreciation. Yes, they get a salary but that is not really an appreciation in itself.

MacUser5. Report to Cupertino for re-education. Sarcasm will not be tolerated.

See all the perks you get for your employees when you unceremoniously purge them? :)
