The hammer is dropping at Microsoft. The software giant is laying off a record number of employees, including up to half of the recently-acquired Nokia staff. But is that the best thing for Redmond?
Assimilated into Microsoft, Nokia will be making Windows phones and that's it. Microsoft has decided to end Nokia's development of Android-based phones, feature phones and the Asha operating system.
How will the IBM-Apple deal announced Wednesday affect business users? There are indications that the deal between the tech titans could have a significant impact in a variety of areas.
The boom has been lowered in Redmond. Following persistent rumors that Microsoft could lay off more people than the previous record of 5,800, the company said it would eliminate some 18,000 jobs.
