Submission + - Microsoft Layoffs Represent Failure Of Nokia Acquisition (

jfruh writes: The tech press has been shocked by the scale of layoffs proposed by new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella — tens of thousands of workers representing 14 percent of company headcount. But the numbers somewhat obscure the fact that a significant majority of those losing their jobs — almost 70 percent — are former Nokia employees who only came over in the course of Microsoft's acquistion of their company in the past year. The cuts may primarily represent Nadella's rejection of the Nokia merger, signalled by his changing Microsoft's mission from being a "devices and services" provider to instead focusing on "productivity and platform".
