Microsoft Layoffs: Spin Control or Fiction?

I’ve heard rumors of Microsoft laying off up to 10% of their total workforce, and I guess those rumors came from a few different blog sites. Having said that,those blog sites have seemingly withdrawn such statements and now it’s unclear if a layoff is actually happening. But when they say they might lay off contingent employees (aka,contractors or to many people, temps), that really doesn’t seem accurate because you don’t “lay off” non-employees. Semantics? Maybe. 

Anyway, read the interesting article here. In just a matter of weeks we’ll know for sure.

I often ask myself: What is Microsoft good at again?
