Smells like specious reasoning. The tech talent pool is so large that no one company could make a dent in it no matter how fast or how much they hired. And what's the point in spending all that money to maybe slow down a competitor by what, a quarter? Weeks?

Never underestimate the stupidity of management. These people had nothing to do simply because management had no idea how to use them and wanted to grow products without a plan or proper hiring strategy.
