Microsoft reportedly planning big round of layoffs

According to Bloomberg News, the reductions – which may be unveiled as soon as this week – will probably be in areas such as Nokia and divisions of Microsoft that overlap with that business, as well as marketing and engineering, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. The restructuring may end up being the biggest in Microsoft history, topping the 5,800 jobs cut in 2009. Peter Wootton, a spokesman for Microsoft, declined to comment
