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

MacDailyNews Take: Enjoy, Apple employees!
Now, for you Apple retail employees: Not only do you get this tremendous value, but you even get to keep your jobs as long as you move enough iPhone cases and other extraneous, over-priced shit from the accessories section, capice? And, try to keep the place clean, will ya? Times are tough, dontcha know?! Now, SELL, SELL, SELL, dammit! Somebody’s got to pay for these perks!
