Not bad! Probably VERY expensive.

The Jobs family gave each of the members of the shipbuilding staff an elegant thank-you note, along with a token gift of their appreciation — an iPod Shuffle with the name of the ship inscribed on the back.

You spent untold millions on a yacht, and a bunch of people worked their tails off to finish a vision for your late husband, and a token of your appreciation is the crappiest piece of technology you make? A SHUFFLE??!?! A SHUFFLE?!!?

Umm...they did pay them for their work right? I'm sure they are more than happy with the big paychecks they received building it.

Don't know about cheap but they are bad at giving gifts. Shuffle is worthless, at least a pair of socks I could put to use.

Sure they did, but your waiters are also paid to bring you food, and you still tip them. I'm sure with a unique project like this, the people working had to go above and beyond to make it happen. A $50.00 iPod shuffle?

Waiters get tips because they make less than min wage. Those builders got paid a premium to custom build a million dollar yacht. Poor comparison.

They should have given them something that's not Apple produced or related. Like a nice fancy dinner would have been a better choice.

I work in the boat building industry and those workers are on anything but a high salary.

Having said that lots of owners are tight as f*ck, we're lucky to get beers put on by the owners at the end of the build.
