SlashGear Week in Review: Week 4 2009

We kicked off the week with our review of the Sony VAIO P, the company's "don't call it a netbook" companion ultraportable.  It's interesting to contrast it with Acer's just-confirmed 10-inch Aspire One, which will likely offer greater performance at less than half the price.  Elsewhere, Sanyo took the wraps off of their 2009 Xacti camcorder range, including a very tempting 1080p 60fps model, and HTC announced the Touch Cruise smartphone with an integrated GPS-tagged memory app.  In other smartphone news, everyone got surprisingly agitated about President Obama's super-secret messaging phone.

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.
