    "Microsoft is looking to make cuts in advertising, events planning and customer-relations activities to shave $1 billion off its total operating expenses."

    Isn't Channel9 included in customer-relations? Sad

    Unless the Channel 9 Foam Guy is actually the size of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, I don't think Channel 9 will have much impact on that $1 billion!  I think this place is probably safe.

    From what I can tell, the perks the employees at Microsoft get are gigantic, some might say excessive.  They could do with a few of them cutback!

    I suggest you read the comments on the slashdot post on this news item.  Its hilarious.  There are people there writing Microsoft's obituary because of this news item.  I worry, seriously worry, about some of those people.
