Yes I heard about this.

First the Windows 8 fiasco.
Then the XboxOne problems.

I went to the Microsoft store couple days ago and talked to them for a while, it seems Microsoft is in their own world, I really dont know whats up.

I thought the economy was recovering?

it may well be, but when you have just spent $7 billion on a company, you're gonna want to start reducing costs asap.

This is what happens when you buy something like NOKIA. Hopefully they find jobs soon.


On a good note at least the topic wasn't made by "BPSatsuki"
