As part of our ongoing cost-cutting exercise, we are
proposing a major change to our Desktop policy and a further move towards a recycling and paperless office. The goal is to remove all laptop computers by March 2006 and all desktop computers by April 2006.
Instead, everyone will be provided with an Etch-A-Sketch.
1. No boot-up problems 2. No technical glitches keeping work from being done. 3. No more wasted time reading and writing emails. 4. No more worries about power cuts. 5. Budget savings on upgrades unparalleled 6. No danger of viruses and worms infecting our data.
