I hate on google as much as anyone, but getting rid of redundant services just makes good business sense. And 100 staff? All large companies are taking this opportunity to cut off the bottom chaff; any company their size has 100 workers that suck. They are just getting rid of them and scaring the rest into working harder...just like every other evil corp =p.

My company laid of 1500 we wish it was only 100. Cutting 10% off of workforces
in this market is pretty standard now adays.

If I cut 10% of my staff I'd have to use a chainsaw.

Google is crisis is a bad news. We can love or hate Google but just cannot ignore it. It is providing indirect employment via adsense and adwords for millions. Well only 100 is not a big news. But we must also understand all the services that are discontinued like google videos.. Google has an alternative in Youtube. So it is not a big problem actually

Google puah .
I hope it will be executed , as the G owners , vendors and so on.
The google monopoly about information ( youtube , feedburner , g-news , crawling etc ) , privacy ( gmail , browser ) , isn't acceptable on the net , specially from a corporation was based on opensource philosophy .
Already there is microsoft , another?

Hello rvdh, really very nice and interesting news you share here. Google is great player in search engine industy and in this news i read announcement of this company that it will cost cutting exercise in other Projects. This is really strange, Because it is really strong company and i think it has no any finacial crisis. Because it is earning handsome profit on every year. Thanks for sharing nice news on this big company.
