Microsoft software glitch

SEATTLE – A few weeks after launching the first wide-scale layoffs in its history, Microsoft Corp. admits it screwed up a key part of the plan.

    Hah!

    I’m not surprised they had to lay-off some workers. I don’t think any part of the market is going to be untouched before this is all over.

  2. HA! I can only imagine the conversations that were had. “Hello. You were laid off last week and we want some of the severance money you got back.” “WHAT? Fuck off.”
