I don't find that too surprising, I'd be more surprised if they knew in advance to be honest.

I was interested in the employee's comment about how he keeps corporate secrets:
"I actually avoid the technology section of the newspaper so I have no points of view to accidentally comment with or drop into conversation. I'd rather just be dumb about it."

Sorry, but his credibility went way down in my book when he said that. I'm not too interested in the technology opinions of somebody who says he doesn't follow technology in the news. That's like me saying that I don't like Apple Thoughts without visiting the site.
