Microsoft After much, much, much speculation, Microsoft let the cat out of the bag today: due to weak results, Microsoft is going to cut 5000 jobs. Those 5000 jobs will disappear over the course of 18 months, with 1400 jobs being cut immediately. Quarterly results, as well as the cost-cutting measures, were made known in a press release today.

I hope that some of those that are losing their jobs are those brillant marketing folks that brought us those gonzo commercials with Seinfeld and Gates.

Though I could agree with you, think on their family economy... losing the job is not funny when you have children to sustain..

well they can try to work for NBC. They are always looking for new shows that aren't funny or interesting. ;)
