This will devastate the local real estate market if true. Scary times.

I just heard on Bloomberg news this morning about the possibility of 10% cut in the labor force at Microsoft.

If you own an iPod then YOU are part of the MS problem.

WE NEED TO BUY MORE ZUNES!!!

That "Mojave" commercial sums up the MS problem most concisely. MS has to literally disguise the name of Vista (and pay people in a commercial to look excited) in order to try and sell it. And what about those Gates/Seinfeld commercials?

Its like watching a onetime top movie star grow old and do everything they can to try and stay young and "with-it". And just as pathetic and ultimately....hopeless.

"Microsoft is preparing to announce the first wide scale layoffs in its 32-year history, with up to 15,000 jobs at risk, according to some predictions," 'The Times' said in a report published online.

If they're smart, I'll be one of those that gets laid off. I'm SO LAZY!

the core of the "15k headcount cut" rumor comes from "" and they are saying most of the layoffs are going to come from MSN.

Microsoft just hired a new president for its online properties (including MSN) from Yahoo after a lengthy search. He started full time today. Do you think that SteveB is going to surprise him in his first week of work by laying off +20% of his team? I don't!

There may be cutbacks at Microsoft but that rumor is based on a fairly illogical premise. I don't think it can be given much credibility

I wonder if this could be GOOD for the housing market, meaning, maybe this will prompt home sellers to finally begin lowering their prices on the eastside.

If it is true, I doubt they will call it layoffs. I bet they call it "phased-reorganization" or "project demand right-sizing." Or some other meaningless euphemism.
