Reports of another wave of layoffs rekindle bad press for Microsoft

Quote:
Microsoft’s massive staff reduction, which shocked many when it was announced in July, is back in the spotlight with a pair of reports that the ax will come down on another group of employees Thursday.

It would be the second wave of job cuts in the plan to ultimately eliminate 18,000 positions, or 14 percent of the company’s staff, by the end of its fiscal year on June 30, 2015, according to reports this week from ZDnet and GigaOM, both based on anonymous sources.

There company is anything but growing harrie. Microsoft is in a lot of trouble. Windows 8 isn't selling, there phones are not selling, xbox one isn't selling as well as hoped, and companies are buying less and less licenses for windows, and instead using thin clients.

One adage is "That you have to spend money to make money" ...that is why they bought Nokia, though that doesn't seem to be helping much.

One buys Nokia the new wants to sell Nokia

If Nokia doesn't make and develop windows phones who will this was a insurance policy made by Ballmer on a hefty price tag

Microsoft is doing quite well offshore,
They just can't figure out how to bring the money home and avoid taxes by democrats
So here are the layoffs,

Only philanthropist agree with the Buffett rule,
As a business they do not

I think if a company like that went bust, the technology world would just crumble!

Despite its highly publicized failures, such as Win 8, Office 365, Windows Phone, X-Box, etc., M$ is very much alive, doing well, and raising...well, you know what I mean.
