More Job Cuts at Apple?
Owen Thomas reports on Apple’s supposed recent job cuts.

“A recent report of layoffs in Apple’s sales force sparked some controversy, because corporations are supposed to file notice of mass layoffs in advance and Apple PR denied the layoffs. I absolutely believe they happened, despite bloggers who bought Apple’s PR spin. It only makes sense in a weakening economy, when businesses are slashing purposes, to cut salespeople.”
