  • I envision SteveB sitting in his home office at 5:59am on Tuesday morning with a sinister smile on his face as he holds his finger on his mouse waiting for the clock to strike 6am so he can click "Send". "Bwhooohahahaha!" he cackles as the email goes out to his unsuspecting prey.

  • Just what is needed to spur a new round of media frenzy and crap on our stock. Way to go.

  • Well if today's all-up call was any indication, things won't be changing at Microsoft anytime soon. Watching Ballmer duck questions really left me with a bad taste in my mouth. He had no answers for Apple's continued consumer dominance and was less than forthcoming on many of the limitations of our online service offerings. The reason the field is pushing back on BPOS is because the solution isn't ready for all but the most generic customers (e.g. their requirements). Regardless of the poor economy, I have decided to start looking for an exit from Microsoft after watching the company stagnate over that last 10 years. And don't even get me started on the stock price.

  • There are layoffs tomorrow. The question is will it be part of the original 5,000 or deeper? I have confirmation from some L66s. Sales, Marketing, and Partner teams will be hit.

    Check your managers' schedules tomorrow and note the number of private appointments. Chances are most of your groups will also have an All Hands meeting on Wednesday.

  • Microsoft have terminated lots of people through performance pruning. Does this count in the announced 5000?

    Ha! "...but not all done."

    Continue to foster the fear environment. Solid, solid business plan. Is there a functioning brain anywhere on the SLT?
