Microsoft to eliminate up to 5,000 employees

Meanwhile the head man predicts doom and gloom for his rival Apple and that all this mess will just pass:

“The price premiums that people pay for Macs versus PCs will be looked at much more critically in the next two quarters,” said Ballmer. “Neither the consumer nor business side is immune to the economic conditions.”

Though Ballmer called the current economic dislocation “unprecedented,” he called the recent downturn in the tech sector “just a pause.”

“Nothing will stop the forward march of our industry or Microsoft,” Ballmer said. “There will soon be renewed growth in the tech industry and certainly in Microsoft.”
