The iPod Your company 'gifted' may not be yours after all.....

Yes.If you are celebrating with the latest video iPod your company gifted, think again- for,it might not be 'yours' in the exact sense.Companies that reaped a good bounty these days seem to reward their employees with a ipod to everyone one of them.Employees are ofcourse only too happy to listen to it or gift it to relatives or sell it.

Bringning a jolt to those people ,National Semiconductors, a electronics giant of USA ,which had only recently 'gifted' iPods to its employees has asked those who have been laid off recently to return their iPods or pay a 'fair' market price to the company !

Earlier this year Cognizant Technologies gifted a iPod to all the employees on payroll at that time to celebrate reaching the $1bn revenue milestone.While I dont think Cognizant would do something as lame as NS ,people should be aware what companies can do.
