They put the X in Xmas

by Saleem Khan, CBC News Online

BlueCat Networks Inc. has had a good five years. The maker of internet hardware has seen their revenues grow 1,336 per cent over that period, and this year doubled their staff to more than 85 people.

To celebrate, brothers Michael and Richard Hyatt will assemble their employees from around the world together at their Toronto headquarters later today to unveil BlueCat's giant Christmas tree — made of Xbox 360 video game consoles. There are enough of the top-end $500 sets for everyone to take home.

In keeping with the spirit of the season, the company is also donating 10 systems and a trip to Disney World to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The organization fulfills wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses.

The company is expanding rapidly so you might want to apply for a job now in case next year's tree is made of Sony PlayStation 3s or Nintendo Wiis.
