Sony to lay off 10,000 worldwide

Kyodo, Staff report

Sony Corp., the once high-flying electronics giant, plans to lay off 10,000 employees worldwide, or 6 percent of its workforce, by the end of the year in a bid to regain global competitiveness, it was learned Monday.

The news comes at a time when the Tokyo-based maker is grappling with harsh global competition from Samsung Electronics Co. and Apple Inc. and is expecting to log more red ink in the year that ended March 31.

The Nikkei business daily reported Monday that, in addition to slashing 5,000 jobs as part of a reorganization of its businesses for small and medium-size display panels and noncore chemicals, which has already been announced, Sony will cut another 5,000 globally.

The report also said seven senior managers, including Chairman Howard Stringer, are expected to give up their bonuses for the latest year.

Sony declined to comment on the reports. Chief Executive Officer Kazuo Hirai, 51, who replaced Stringer on April 1, is scheduled to explain Sony’s corporate strategy on Thursday.

Sony is one of several domestic electronics giants that have been grappling with the yen’s historic surge and an increasingly competitive TV business. It expects a ¥220 billion group net loss for the year ended March 31, it said in February.

Sony slashed 16,000 from its global workforce in December 2008, following the shock in the global financial market caused by the Lehman Brothers failure.

Panasonic Corp., another struggling giant, expects to post its biggest-ever group net loss — ¥780 billion — for 2011, and had planned to lay off as many as 40,000 by the end of March.

 

Not shitting you boys and girls, 2012 will have heads roll for people even before December. Oh and if you guys haven’t heard this yet. GABE NEWELL IS A FUCKING BRONY!

Was news to me too a few days ago.

 

 

Gabe Newell Joins the Herd

Posted by

Considering the EQD Steam group is rollin with 8000+ members, I’m pretty sure a good amount of you have at least some ties to this guy.  It has been a rumor filled mystery for a while now when it comes to the status of Gabe Newell and ponies.    People have sent emails supposedly from him, professing his love for Rainbow Dash.  TF2 regularly drops pony references, though I don’t think he has direct control over that.  This is the first time he has actually admit to it though! It’s about time!

You can find the full interview here, and the admission at 15:35.  Someone also uploaded it to Youtube, you can find that after the break!

It needs some thumbs up too, cause people really aren’t liking it!

 

 

 

 

And let’s just say Gabe’s entry into the herd will only bear good news. Remember guy’s love and tolerate. (trollestia.png)

Now, hunkering down to actual news.

 

 

Man wearing boxers assaults construction workers with orange. Apparently there are parts of Florida where this isn’t normal

 

FORT PIERCE, Fla. –

Some turn to oranges for the cold-fighting Vitamin C this time of year. Others fire the fruit off a seventh-floor balcony while wearing only boxer shorts, according to police in Fort Pierce.

A construction worker told police that the orange landed just feet away from him while he was working in the 300 block of South Ocean Drive on Friday.

And William Wink, a Vietnam veteran, former school teacher and one-time political candidate, ended up getting squeezed with an aggravated assault charge.

Wink told WPBF 25 News’ Erin Guy on Monday that he meant no harm.

“I have never harmed anyone in my whole life,” he said. “I have never been arrested.”

Wink said the orange was rotten, so he wanted to get rid of it but not in his own garbage can.

“It was squishy,” he said. “I didn’t want to waste it so I walked over to the balcony. The idea again (was) not to waste it and give it to the birds and the squirrels. I just lobbed it over the edge.”

But the police report indicated “the orange was found not rotten but ripe.”

WPBF was unable to reach the construction worker.

 

I gotta admit, I fucking laughed when I read the title of that news article. Next, up everyone looks at porn…No shit, Sherlock!

 

Is the whole world looking at porn? Biggest site gets over FOUR BILLION hits a month

By Ted Thornhill

30% of all web traffic is porn, according to a report

‘The internet is for porn,’ is the title of a song on hit musical Avenue Q.

And it turns out the lyricists had touched on a home truth, because researchers have discovered that a staggering 30 per cent of all internet traffic is pornography.

The biggest porn site on the web – Xvideos – receives 4.4billion page views and 350million unique visits per month, according to a report on the ExtremeTech website.

The only sites that surpass this in size are the likes of Google and Facebook.

The report uncovered the viewing figures for Xvideos from Google’s DoubleClick Ad Planner, which uses cookies to gather information about users.

It then used these figures – and actual data from the third biggest porn site, YouPorn – to extrapolate how much data is being transferred out of the site’s servers.

And it’s a huge amount.

It based the first calculation on the average length of time spent on Xvideos, which is 15minutes, and assumed a low resolution video was being streamed.

From this it estimated that around 29 petabytes of pornography is being transferred a month, or 50 gigabytes per second.

However, it upped this estimate to 35 to 40PB per month after learning that YouPorn hosts over 100TB of porn, gets 100million page views and transfers 950 terabytes per day.

That’s the equivalent of 10 dual-layer DVDs per second.

At peak times, it speculates that Xvideos is streaming 1,000 gigabytes per second (or one terabyte), which, the report points out, is one fifteenth of the total amount of connectivity between London and New York.

The ExtremeTech investigation surmised that YouPorn accounts for two per cent of internet traffic, with 30 per cent of all web traffic being pornography related.

Earlier this year thousands of YouPorn users had their personal passwords and emails leaked online by hackers.

In total, 6433 users of the YouPorn chat site were exposed after a third-party service provider failed to secure data, its owner claimed.

Email address and password combinations were put on the website Pastebin, although some appeared to be bogus or inactive.

A spokesman said at the time that the site was run by an outside company on separate servers and that there was no breach at YouPorn itself.

 

This is a fucking no-duh. I didn’t think that the UK was dumb enough to publish something like this. This is news? Must be a slow news day. And now for some prostitutes…
