Following last week’s news of Microsoft selling off its feature phone business for $350 million, today Microsoft turned its attention to smartphones: the company announced it would lay off 1,850 staff and take a charge of $950 million, including $200 million in severance payments, as it “streamlines” the business to focus on enterprises and niche areas where it feels it can better differentiate.

 

“We are focusing our phone efforts where we have differentiation — with enterprises that value security, manageability and our Continuum capability, and consumers who value the same,” said Satya Nadella, chief executive officer of Microsoft, in a statement. “We will continue to innovate across devices and on our cloud services across all mobile platforms.”

 

On one hand, the move is not that surprising, considering that Microsoft has failed to spark much interest in its Lumia-branded smartphones since taking over the business from Nokia, with Android-based devices and Apple’s iPhone continuing to dominate sales and usage globally.

 

On the other hand, it is a little bit of a shock to see Microsoft doing this.

 

The feature phone business that it sold to a Foxconn-led consortium last week was never the primary interest for Microsoft, so it seemed like a very obvious move to finally pass it on to a group that was more interested in developing it and getting out what it could from the lower end of the market that is still buying these devices (which, interestingly, is still a pretty sizeable volume, if much lower value overall).

 

But the smartphone business, in contrast, was always the part that Microsoft wanted to see if it could replicate some of the same vertically integrated magic that Apple has so adeptly performed with the iPhone: control the platform, the apps, and the devices and you have a better chance of creating something unique that works, seemed to be the thinking that led it to buy Nokia’s mobile phone division back in 2013 for an initial consideration of $7.2 billion.

 

However, it just didn’t seem to be Microsoft’s time. It was partly because it was too late to enter the market with something that was effectively not a big enough iteration on what was already on offer.

 

And it was partly because the smartphones, at first, just weren’t as good. Remember all those missing apps that Microsoft had to work so hard to bring to its Windows mobile operating system? When you speak to many app developers today, they still view Windows as a maybe rather than a must-have.

 

Some 1,350 jobs at Microsoft Mobile Oy in Finland will go, as well as up to 500 additional jobs globally, the company said. Microsoft Oy employees, a separate Microsoft sales subsidiary based in Espoo, are not impacted, the company added.

 

But in general, it’s a pretty grim period for mobile technology workers in Finland: late last week Nokia also quietly announced that it would lay off just over 1,000 people in the country. It comes also some two years after a two much larger waves of cuts: first, the bulk of a round 18,000 layoffs announced in 2014; and then 7,800 more when it wrote down the value of its Nokia acquisition by an eye-watering $7.6 billion.

 

The layoffs announced today will be fully completed by July 2017, the company said, to coincide with the end of its fiscal year, the company said.

 

There was also an internal memo from devices EVP Terry Myerson that it looks like Microsoft has been sharing with symphathetic journalists, reiterating the news and trying to shore up staff morale around it. Microsoft also noted that it will be making a filing with the SEC with more details, so I’ll keep a look out for that to see if there’s any more to add to this story.

Los números confirman pérdidas en la división móvil de Microsoft

 

Microsoft está perdiendo dinero con la comercialización de sus equipos con Windows Phone. Así lo reveló la empresa la semana pasada luego de brindar una presentación ante Comisión de Valores y Bolsa de Estados Unidos. El gigante desarrollador de software explicó que su sector fabricante de hardware para smartphones atraviesa un momento difícil de superar.

 

Los ingresos de la primera parte del año alcanzan 1.4 mil millones de dólares mientras que los costos superaron este número y causaron una pérdida que supera los cuatro millones de dólares. Según un reporte presentado por Computer World, Microsoft perdió alrededor de 12 centavos por teléfono.

 

Estas cifras no sorprenden si se toma en cuenta que Microsoft apunta a los equipos de gama baja, aunque la compañía advirtió que el sector está en un riesgo elevado. “Debido a su desempeño reciente, el sector de hardware de teléfonos se encuentra en una situación delicada”, aseguró la empresa.

 

El CEO de Microsoft, Satya Nadella, ya había comenzado a informar problemas en el negocio de sus smartphones. Las ventas de Lumia incrementaron un 18% año tras año, un porcentaje relativamente bajo si se lo compara con la cantidad necesaria para impulsar la plataforma de Windows Phone. “Necesitamos tomar acciones para reducir nuestros costos para poder lanzar de forma exitosa Windows 10 en nuestros equipos”, admitió Nadella la semana pasada.

科學家觀察到太陽連續爆發三次X級耀斑

 

近兩日,航空航天局NASA的研究人員觀察到太陽連續爆發三次X級耀斑,這些耀斑爆發可能影響地球無線電通訊和GPS信號。NASA表示,這些耀斑儘管出現時間不長但能量強大,釋放出大量來自太陽等離子體和其他物質。一般情況下,科學家將太陽耀斑分為A、B、C、M、X五級,強度依次增加,其中X級耀斑是規模最大的,而這次出現的耀斑強度分別為X2.2級、X1.5級和X1.0級。據報導,NASA在一份聲明中稱,目前正在分析耀斑可能對地球造成的影響。研究人員表示,這些耀斑釋放的輻射有可能會影響地球上電子設備的無線電波,包括手機、GPS、廣播等,並估計接下來幾天太陽可能還有其他的異常活動。

Microsoft controlorá definitivamente Nokia hacia fines de marzo

 

Los primeros días del noveno mes de 2013, Microsoft anunció la compra de la división móvil y servicios de Nokia, una transacción que supone el pago de 7.200 millones de dólares “ubicando bajo un mismo techo a Windows Phone y a su principal proveedor de hardware”, tal como advertimos en este repaso. Por entonces (incluso ante la aparición de publicidades que “oficializaban” el acuerdo) se advirtió que la compra se sellariía durante el primer trimestre de 2014.

 

Hacia el mes de noviembre, los accionistas de Nokia aprobaron la transacción: un 99,7 por ciento de los votos fueron a favor.

 

Descartada la especulación en torno al nombramiento de Stephen Elop, hombre fuerte de Nokia, como CEO de Microsoft tras la salida de Steve Ballmer; ahora se divulga que la compañía que comanda Satya Nadella hará efectiva la compra de Nokia hacia finales de marzo. Según informa The Verge, el fabricante finlandés reiteró el viernes su intención de que la venta se complete antes de que culmine el primer trimestre del año en curso. En esta línea, Nokia subrayó en un comunicado de prensa que una disputa fiscal que tiene curso en India no afectará el cierre de la transacción.

 

El segmento móvil fue eje central en los mensajes que divulgó Satya Nadella al momento de su nombramiento como nuevo CEO en Redmond, relevancia que puede advertirse en esta carta que envió en la ocasión a los empleados de la firma. En tal sentido, no se esperan tropiezos en este movimiento.

据数据追踪机构Challenger Gray & Christmas统计,2015年迄今为止,裁员规模最大的企业是惠普,年内已经裁掉了3万人。(Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

 

据数据追踪机构Challenger Gray & Christmas统计,今年(2015)裁员规模最大的8家美国企业如下:

 

惠普(HP):裁员3万

 

2011年惠特曼(Meg Whitman)出任执行长以来,惠普(HP)确实瘦身不少,估计已裁掉了8.5万个工作,包括上个月宣布的3万职位,使得这个曾经的美国标志性企业成为2015年裁员最多的美国公司。

 

最新一轮裁员与惠普分拆成两家独立上市公司有关。其中HP Enterprise继续由惠特曼主持,将重点放在如云计算、网络安全等增长快速的领域。另一家称HP Inc.,将销售个人电脑(PC)、打印机等增长较慢的业务。

 

斯伦贝谢:裁员2万

 

油价低迷已使大量钻探活动停摆,斯伦贝谢(Schlumberger)因而削减2万个工作岗位。宣布两轮裁员,其间相隔仅短短四个月,凸显了油价剧跌,让该产业猝不及防。目前该公司员工数较2014年年中油价每桶100美元以上时减少了15%。

 

贝克休斯:裁员1.3万

 

提供油气钻探设备和服务的贝克休斯(Baker Hughes),今年发出三轮裁员公告,共裁撤1.3万个职位。今年稍早还以350亿美元与竞争对手哈里伯顿(Halliburton)合并。

 

据统计,自2014年6月油价下跌以来,美国石油企业裁掉直接相关职位8.6万个以上。

 

哈里伯顿:裁员1.18万

 

油田服务巨擘哈里伯顿(Halliburton)今年已削裁减近1.2万人。这些裁员是直接与美国石油钻探数量急剧下降有关。贝克休斯估计钻油机数量自去年秋季高峰时的1600台直线下降60%。

 

卡特彼勒:裁员1万

 

卡特彼勒(Caterpillar)受到中国经济增长放缓和油价大跌双重打击。上月透露2018年以前将裁撤1万员工,2016年底前先裁5000名。预计因此每年节省15亿美元。

 

A & P:裁员8.500

 

A&P公司已成破产法庭的常客。这家连锁超市7月份申请第11章破产保护。此为短短5年内第二次申请破产,主要是因激烈竞争与不断更换管理团队。

 

A&P表示,将关掉25家店,直接影响8500名员工,主要集中在新泽西州。另一方面将出售雇用了12,500名员工的120家超市。

 

微软:裁员7,800

 

微软执行长纳德拉(Satya Nadella)并不担忧企业规模缩减。自2014年二月上任以来,已推动两波裁员,裁撤约25,800个岗位。今年七月又宣布裁员7,800,主要在智能手机硬件业务。自他接手后,微软股价上涨18%。

 

Radio Shack:裁员6,500

 

该电子产品零售商二月份申请破产时宣布裁撤6,500人。旗下4,000家门店共雇用21,000名员工。它同时宣布与Sprint联手运营1,750家店。具体裁员多少还未知。◇

Microsoft podría tener nuevo CEO la próxima semana

 

El tiempo para pensar y contemplar el futuro parece estar llegando a su fin: Microsoft podría tener un nuevo CEO la próxima semana. Los rumores y suposiciones involucrando varios candidatos han sido constantes desde el mismo momento en que la actual cabeza de la compañía anuncio su próximo retiro. La empresa ha formó una comisión especial para encontrar el sucesor de Steve Ballmer. Según publica el sitio Re/Code, un asociado de la cadena CNBC, el hombre que podría ocupar la silla del mandamás sería Satya Nadella.

 

Nadella le permitiría a Microsoft resolver la sucesión puertas adentro. Nadella es actualmente el vicepresidente ejecutivo de la sección Cloud and Enterprise Group. A su favor juega el hecho de que ha pasado la mayor parte de su carrera dentro de la compañía cumpliendo varios roles. Su llegada a la compañía data de 1992, anteriormente había trabajado en Sun Microsystems. Otro factor a considerar es que ha sido señalado como el primer candidato a convertirse en el nuevo CEO por parte de los mismos empleados de Microsoft en una reciente encuesta. Ellos consideran que Microsoft es una compañía demasiado compleja como para ser comandada por un ejecutivo extraño a la organización.

 

Los otros dos candidatos internos son Tony Bates y Stephen Elop; pero al parecer se encuentran varios cuerpos por detrás de Nadella. Por otro lado la opción por un CEO proveniente del exterior no se ha descartado del todo. Sin embargo, algunos de los candidatos que sonaron como posibles sucesores han declarado que no piensan dejar sus actuales compañías. Es el caso de Allan Mulally, de Ford; y Steve Mollenkopf, de Qualcomm.

 

Dentro de Microsoft algunos ejecutivos ya han expresado su inquietud ante la demora del nombramiento del nuevo CEO. El problema es que nadie sabe cuáles serán los objetivos que se propondrán, por lo que no saben cómo actuar mirando al futuro.

Build 2015: Qué vamos a ver en la conferencia anual de Microsoft

 

Mañana 29 de abril, Microsoft dará inicio a Build, su conferencia de desarrolladores más importante del año y, al mismo tiempo, una de las más relevantes de 2015 debido a los anuncios que se esperan.

 

La compañía comandada por Satya Nadella probablemente revelará la cara final de Windows 10, en todas sus plataformas, y brindará más detalles del resto de sus proyectos con Hololens a la cabeza. El foco estará puesto además en los desarrolladores, ya que el principal caballo de batalla de la nueva plataforma de software de la firma se basa en su “core” único transdispositivo, lo que permitirá migrar de manera sencilla una app de la PC al móvil y viceversa.

 

RedUSERS volverá a estarpresente en el Moscone Center de San Francisco para traer todas las novedades de la empresa con sede en Redmond. Mientras tanto, y para palpitar la previa, enumeramos los items más importantes del evento.

 

Windows 10

 

Como ya dijimos, la conferencia va a girar en torno a la nueva plataforma de Microsoft. Se esperan más novedades del sistema operativo y, por qué no, su versión final, que podría salir al mercado en julio. Por ahora, la empresa no ha filtrado nada al respecto, pero un leak publicado este martes muestra algunas nuevas funciones que podrían ser anunciadas en la keynote del miércoles.

 

Cortana

 

El asistente por voz de Microsoft también tiene chances de revelar su forma final durante la conferencia. Por ahora, solo se conoce la beta y algunos datos sobre su implementación; todo indica que estará presente en todas las plataformas donde la compañía opere.

 

Móviles

 

Microsoft espera darle forma final a su división móvil con la presentación de Windows 10 para smartphones y tablets. Por ahora, solo se sabe que el SO compartirá el núcleo con su versión “hermana” para computadoras, por lo que la Build será un escenario ideal para mostrar los progresos logrados. Asimismo, se rumorea con anuncios relacionados al Lumia 940, el primer Smartphone Microsoft de gama alta en casi dos años, y el primero en no llevar impresa la marca Nokia.

 

Desarrolladores

 

Serán los protagonistas y los que darán forma al evento. Microsoft necesita aplicaciones, y para ello es necesario una comunidad de developers activa. Si bien ha mejorado en este aspecto, por ahora se encuentra muy lejos de la variedad de Apps que pueden ostentar iOS y Android. Se estima que la compañía presentará nuevas herramientas para migrar de manera fácil las Apps hechas para estos SO en Windows 10, además de Apps propias que funcionarán en dispositivos que no corran con su plataforma.

 

Hololens y Office

 

Por último, habrá que prestar atención a los avances hechos en Hololens, su misterioso y revolucionario dispositivo de realidad aumentada; y las novedades que puedan surgir en torno a Office, que sigue pisando fuerte en móviles. ¿Habrá novedades para los desarrolladores?

Many people have both laptop computers and tablets and use them for different tasks. Microsoft on Tuesday redoubled its vision that the two devices should be one and the same, introducing a new version of its Surface tablet with a larger screen.

 

The company’s new product, the Surface Pro 3, has a 12-inch screen, larger than many small laptop screens. The more spacious screen reflects a sharpening of Microsoft’s belief that it can still distinguish itself in the tablet market, where it is currently an also-ran, with a device that meets professional and personal needs.

 

Microsoft argues that current tablets, most notably the iPad, are great for watching movies and other forms of entertainment or reading, but are far weaker when it comes to getting work done. The company’s proposition is that the Surface can do both well. A bigger display, Microsoft argues, will let people look at more than one application on their screens at the same time — like email and a word processor — as they can on their laptops.

   

We want products and technology that enable people to dream and get stuff done,” Satya Nadella, the chief executive of Microsoft, said at an event in New York.

 

This has been Microsoft’s approach since it introduced the original Surface in 2012, however. Earlier Surface versions had a 10.6-inch screen, larger than those on most other tablets.

 

Microsoft has won praise from many quarters for the design of the Surface, including a cover that also doubles as a laptoplike keyboard and track pad. Critics of Surface say a hybrid device forces too many design compromises. Timothy D. Cook, the chief executive of Apple, once said in reference to the Surface that “you can converge a toaster and refrigerator, but these things are probably not going to be pleasing to the user.

 

Sales of the Surface have been disappointing, and the company is losing money on the devices. During the first quarter of the year, Microsoft’s share of worldwide shipments in the market for tablets and two-in-one computers — tablets with detachable keyboards like the Surface — was 1.3 percent, putting it in seventh place in the market, according to IDC, the technology research firm. Apple was No. 1 with 32.7 percent.

 

The new Surface will start at $799, $100 less than the previous comparable version. The Surface Pro 3, which can be preordered starting on Wednesday, will be available in the United States and Canada on June 20.

 

Before the event on Tuesday, many people expected Microsoft to introduce a smaller Surface, to compete with the iPad Mini, the most popular product in Apple’s tablet family. Microsoft is working on such a device, according to a person briefed on the discussions who spoke only on the condition of anonymity. But the company decided against announcing the product on Tuesday, the person said, after Mr. Nadella asked the managers of the Surface team if they believed strongly that the device was ready to be shipped.

 

The Surface team felt the smaller device was not ready, in large part because of software issues, this person said. Microsoft has not completed a version of its Office applications for touch-screen devices running the company’s Windows operating system. Microsoft was concerned that the current Office applications would be difficult to operate on a Surface with a small screen, the person said. A version made for Apple devices has already been released.

 

“This continues to be a massive uphill battle for Microsoft and Nadella,” said Daniel Ives, an analyst at FBR Capital Markets. “It feels like a small step in the right direction from a product perspective and strategy perspective.”

 

The innards of the Surface Pro 3 include a microprocessor made by Intel, the chip giant that makes the microprocessor inside most conventional PCs. That means Microsoft’s device can run applications written for PCs, unlike the iPad and other tablets.

 

The new Surface will inevitably be compared with the iPad, and not favorably in many respects. At 1.76 pounds, the Surface Pro 3 is heavier and more expensive than the 1-pound iPad Air, Apple’s largest tablet, which starts at $499. Yet Microsoft believes a more apt comparison is Apple’s MacBook Air, an ultraslim laptop that is a hit among professionals and starts at $899 and weighs 2.38 pounds.

 

“This device actually makes a much better argument for consolidating into one device,” said J.P. Gownder, an analyst at Forrester Research.

 

Panos Panay, a corporate vice president at Microsoft and a creator of the Surface product line, emphasized repeatedly that Microsoft’s new product elegantly balanced the capabilities of both devices.

 

“I am sure that this is the tablet that can replace the laptop,” Mr. Panay said

众所周知,世界各个角落都有华人的身影,然而进入海外主流社会上层、并担任要职的人却不多。相反,印度裔却春风得意,到处“开花结果”。其中原由值得反思。他们究竟有什么华人不具备的优点,使他们更容易出人头地呢?

 

美国各领域印度裔高管比比皆是。在商界,有微软CEO萨蒂亚?纳德拉(Satya Nadella)、谷歌公司印裔CEO桑达尔?皮查伊、百事可乐CEO卢英德、德意志银行CEO贾恩、万事达卡CEO邦加、消费品巨擘利洁时CEO卡普尔、Adobe公司CEO纳拉延、标准普尔公司前总裁夏尔玛、联合利华前CEO邦加等等。无怪乎有人惊叹,印度人频频“攻陷”跨国巨头。

 

在政界,博比?金达尔(Bobby Jindal)当选为路易斯安那州州长,成为全美首位印裔州长,妮基?哈蕾(Nikki Haley)则当选为南卡罗来纳州州长,成为美国首位印度裔女州长。

 

美国的印度裔,论技能并不比华人强,但在中高级管理层,却将中国人远远甩在后面。究其原因,外界发现,印度裔身上具有华裔所不具备的一些优势。

一、英语上有先天绝对优势,且绝对自信

 

要想在海外种族多元、竞争激烈的环境中脱颖而出,语言沟通能力是非常重要的。而印度曾为英国的殖民地,英语是印度的官方语言,学生自小就接受英语教学,在听说读写方面自然不成问题。

 

而更重要的是印度人在英语上的自信。虽然发音总是“搭啦搭啦”的,但他们完全不介意。他们拥有绝对的自信,声音洪亮,表情丰富,绝不认为自己发音有毛病——对方听不懂是他自己听力有问题。而华人与他们相比,可能有时是太容易难为情。

 

二、思维方式更西化,能很快融入西方社会

 

印度是民主国家,印度人在民主制度下成长,来到西方国家可以很快融入他们的体制、文化、生活和工作环境。

 

印度裔经常面带微笑,见面多寒暄,互相问候,多肯定别人,也表扬自己,不唠叨、不抱怨,与人交谈都是你好我好大家好。比如,说孩子不喜欢学习,他们会说,孩子嘛,都这样,他们家孩子也不爱做作业,但转而又说,他喜欢游泳,且很擅长,每天都很开心。

 

另外,印度裔对不想做的事会委婉拒绝,说不做就不做,但遇到该争的绝不手软,而争抢后仍是一团和气。反观华人,平时任劳任怨,不管该不该自己做,都碍于情面做了,但并非心甘情愿。遇上竞争时,华人又非常受制于情面,“战斗力”显然不足,结果往往是处于劣势。

 

三、对新环境的认同感很强

 

印度裔在海外归化入籍后,就安心扎根,把自己视为这个国家的一分子,“此心安处,便是吾乡”,并以这个国家为傲。而印度承认双重国籍也推动了印度人归化入籍。

 

而中国大陆移民大多都选择“国际家庭”,即夫妻中一方加入新国籍,另一方为保留中国国籍而只拿永居卡。入籍对融入主流社会很重要。不入籍,就没有选举权,就不能在选举中投票支持谁、反对谁。不表明立场,当政者自然就不会在乎。各类选举过后,都会统计出选民的族裔。发声强劲的族裔,政治家们都会重视。

 

四、“抱团儿”和互助精神

 

要跻身主流社会,仅靠某方面的一技之长还不够,拥有沟通、交流、合作等多方面的软实力也很重要。印度人在北美的声势日益强劲,就与他们的“抱团儿”和互助精神分不开。

 

一个印度人移民,整个家族往往都能移民过来;一个印度人进入一个行业,后面跟着就来了更多印度人。往往是一个印度人做了公司经理,在工作安排、培训、招聘上就刻意提携本族裔的人,很快就有了一批印度裔手下。而被提携的人也如法炮制,形成各种团队。这种良性循环造就了一批又一批的印度裔高管。

 

尽管华人在高科技行业或金融等行业并不乏精英人士,但几乎都处于单枪匹马的状态,很少有提携本族裔的现象。中国人戒心重,嫉妒心重,与本族人常常互相争斗,这些扭曲的性格源于中共党文化多年来的毒害。

 

五、敢于付出和担当

 

以加拿大去年要在短期内接纳25,000名叙利亚难民为例。据世界环球商会网站报导,当时碰上伊斯兰国(IS)恐怖分子混入难民制造了巴黎恐怖袭击,加拿大社会立即沸腾。反对方与支持方各执一词。华人大多持反对态度,华人媒体也几乎都是一边倒的反对。有华人表示,没想过要将家中多余的房间租给难民住。

 

而一位印度建商却站出来说,感谢加拿大当年批准他移民,感谢社会多年来对他的支持,如今,在全国面对难民潮压力之际,他愿将自己的一栋空置楼房拿出来,供难民暂时栖身。这栋楼本打算几个月后拆掉重建的。

 

接着,当地的房地产协会主席出面,呼吁建商们都向他学习,为政府与社会分忧解难。

 

这位印度裔建商投桃报李,想必未来的路会更加畅达。#
