TechFlash’s Todd Bishop has the Steve Ballmer memo to the troops outlining the latest round of Microsoft layoffs. The cuts have been widely expected given a: the economy in general and b: Microsoft’s position relative to Google in the supposedly all-important Web advertising and search market. That position remains woefully weak despite billions in investment.
” With this announcement, we are mostly but not all done with the planned 5,000 job eliminations by June 2010.”
Bishop has more info on the layoffs here. And, Mini-Microsoft, as usual, has the definitive word here.
