Mini Microsoft; KIN, Ozzie, and Layoffs

Mini Microsoft: “Dude, Where’s My Job? Folks have been talking about ongoing stealth layoffs and the impending July FY11 layoffs reacting to teams with reduced budgets. I’ve scanned some various HR calendars and found some interesting appointments more around next week vs. this week, but the layoff rumors have spilled over beyond here and into TechFlash…”

Man, am I glad I’m no longer there. I hope the folks I know there make it through? Apparently the layoffs were supposed to start today?

Oh, my, according to a Daring Fireball source Microsoft only sold 503 KIN units before pulling the plug. That is disappointing beyond belief, if it’s true.

  1. What’s worse is that I was still seeing Kin ads a week after they pulled the plug…

  2. James, apparently they’re going to continue to push them in the stores for a while. Crazy stuff.
