Christmas came very early (or very late) for employees of business networking site LinkedIn
: CEO Jeff Weiner on Wednesday gave all 3,500 employees of the company their own 32GB iPad mini
during the usual biweekly "All Hands" meeting. The company said later the move was a "small gesture" to thank workers for their efforts and accomplishments in gratitude for their contributions. LinkedIn grew 81 percent year-over-year in 2012 and beat Wall Street estimates in the most recent quarter.
