Oh Dear

I Love Sony but this is really sad. I don't really have anything else to say. Very very sad !!

I much prefer Sweden taking care of the software than Japan. Software isn't one of Sony's strongpoints.

VERY sad indeed. I REALLY hate this concensus amongst business to fire employees to save dollars. You don't SAVE anything for at least 3mths (a financial quarter) since there is severance pay, insurance, assisting to find new jobs, stock options/trades (costs of doing so) etc.

I'd rather see a company retrain such employees (earmarked for being laid off) for efficient work! Better work! This way they work smarter, hardware, and as a whole are more worth to the company. possible place them in differing departments.

THE ISSUE with Sony bleeding money is NOT the employees that are "following orders" its the issue of a) the design team lacking vision to differentiate their products, b) the marketing team NOT focusing on their target markets in various regions, c) the top staff making idiotic decisions NOT to spend the fund$ for effective marketing.
