Google axes another 1,200 Motorola staff, total job losses top 5,000

CNETAnalysis: Google has confirmed plans to lay off another 1,200 Motorola staff as it desperately seeks a return to profitability for its multi-billion dollar mobile acquisition. The cutbacks, which will affect staff in the United States, China and India, are in addition to the 4,000 job losses the Silicon Valley giant announced last summer. Google paid $12.5bn (UK£8.3, AUD$12.1) for the hardware manufacturer in a deal rubber-stamped last May, partly to boost its Android operating system, but also to acquire Moto’s vast locker of 17,000 patents. In an internal email leaked to the Wall Street Journal, Motorola told staff: “Our costs are too high, we’re operating in markets where we’re not competitive and we’re losing money.” Positive hopes Google is currently working through the cycle of products Motorola already had in motion at the time of purchase and announced an operating loss of $152m for Q4 of 2012, back in January. The company said it has “lots of positive hopes” for many of the new smartphones and tablets in the pipeline and assured that it “was not in the business of losing money” with Motorola. That will be no consolation for the workers who won’t be part of this transition. The number of job losses now surpasses 5,000, which is around a quarter of all employees on the books before the buyout. “These cuts are a continuation of the reductions we announced last summer,” confirmed Google spokeswoman Niki Fenwick. “It’s obviously very hard for the employees concerned, and we are committed to helping them through this difficult transition.” Related Stories MWC 2013: Asus Fonepad is basically a ‘phablet’ but a lot cheaper than the Padfone Asus Padfone 2 UK release date finally announced In Depth: Best weather app: 10 we recommend MWC 2013: HTC One beats Xperia Tablet Z to Best in Show at MWC 2013 Tutorial: How t! o make Android child friendly Posted by: Maryum

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa
Te dassa fir kinnu (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
Dheere dheere se dil ko churana (churana..)
Tumse pyaar hume hai kitna jaane jaana
Tumse mil kar tumko hai batana

Sham wahi, kaam wahi
Tere bina o sanam
Neend nahi, chain nahi
Tere bina o sanam (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do?
Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun
