Rumor is there are more layoffs to come too. You must alert shareholders if you lay off 10% of your workforce. I hear 5% were let go this quarter with another 5% coming next quarter, so no notification would be necessary.

Yes, I noticed there was no mention of the layoff's online or on any news channel. Now I understand why......
