Yeah we broke this story early this morning. The funny part was I was chatting with people that work at Microsoft in IRC as we ran the story. A lot of them were like, "What?!"Even funnier was one guy signed in and said, "Fuck I don't want to be at work today. I just want to sleep." I was replied, "You might want to be careful what you wish for. Microsoft is laying off around 1,400 people today."He was quiet for a while.
