Here’s a thread to discuss some of the not-so-great big news that has come out recently for the Seattle-area’s two biggest private employers.
- Facing class-action lawsuit for Vista hardware requirements
- Cutting boxed Vista prices (possibly due to disappointing sales?)
- Still trying to buy Yahoo!
Not exactly a heaping helping of good times for the area’s two flagship employers, frequently touted as having the fortitude to maintain the local housing market entirely under their own economic power.
What are your thoughts about how Boeing and Microsoft are doing, and what effect it will have on people buying and selling houses?
