Can anyone speculate what Microsoft is doing these days? Never mind the lack of focus that is so obvious in their products and strategies, but apparently dementia has hit the core of the company as well.
It wasn't even 2 years ago that Microsoft was throwing fits like a child to raise the H1B visa limits because it so desperately needed 20,000 more people. Fast-forward a few months and boat-loads of people are getting summarily fired because, well, they have 18,000 too many employees.
So which is it Microsoft, 20,000 vacant positions or 18,000 surplus positions? It's the new fuzzy logic by the company that has brought you the <sarcasm>amazing</sarcasm> Windows 8.
