More On Technology Company Donations

from the interesting... dept

While I don’t fault any one or any company for donating anything to help with the tragedy, I do find it interesting that an American company like Microsoft can offer to donate $5 million in cash and $5 million in software/services, while a Taiwanese tech company can offer to donate $100 million. To be honest, I don’t care about the dollar amounts from any of these firms. The proper response would be “we will do anything we can do to help”. Update: The article has now changed the amount to read $1 million instead of $100 million. I wonder if it was just a typo or if the reporter misunderstood the Via offer.
