Job cuts sweep tech industry: Google, Motorola, Seagate, Sanyo, NEC & Microsoft affected

It's not a good day for a career in the tech industry, as multiple job cuts and proposed cuts are reported, including some from big names like Google.  According to the search giant's own blog, positions in both recruiting and engineering are at risk, with the former seeing 100 jobs cut outright, while the latter involves the closure (and potential for relocation) of offices in Austin, Texas; Trondheim, Norway; and Lulea, Sweden.  Google are hoping that the 70 engineers involved will be able to relocate rather than leave the company. 

Meanwhile, Motorola have scythed 4,000 jobs, three-quarters of which are from the company's handset division, for a total of 6-percent of their global operations.  It's part of an attempt to staunch the company's gushing cash reserves; the Q4 estimates suggest a 7 to 8 cent per share loss.  Overall, Motorola has now shed 7,000 staff.
