Time Gentlemen please?
Must agree, the market for Visto seems to be diminishing now that their law-suits are not generating any cash, I've lost a lot of colleagues & friends already this year and more this time round also, so I guess it might be 3rd time lucky for me :-p
Just a crying shame that it's the workers and ideas people that suffer in pay/job cuts. The top heavy EMEA management structure in Visto could seriously do with thinning out especially with the salaries these guys command to bring almost non-existent business into the company coffers. They cost the company more in expenses than they actually generate in new business and thats a group of management that can't even install the client on a device ..........
Oh sorry wait a minute I was getting confused with management who actually worked and gave a toss about the staff when in fact all they are doing is hanging in there hoping or waiting for a take-over that no doubt will come even if it is to buy the IP rights if nothing else.
These management sorts have decimated the business especially in the EMEA by discarding "original" staff in favor of their "own sorts" and to what end? No new business coming in - Sales and support staff being shed by the trusk-load just so that the business looks more "profitable" to a potential suitor?
Watch this space - the inside money has to be on a Microsoft or even a Vodafone buy-out.
As an aside, I guess Dave will be looking for the G1 then: -p
I've had it 3 weeks now on pre-test & its a nice piece of kit & does email the way I want. anyway, and not a piece of Visto, Rim, or Microsoft software in sight.
