for yahoo the end seems near , sacks 15% workforce and close down 6 global offices

Yahoo continues to be battered by the stock markets and  employees alike as the company decided to do what it does the best.. more firings and more offices to be closed
With its decision to sack  15% global workforce as well as close its  regional offices in Dubai, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Madrid and Milan, Yahoo has also decided to end  products such as Games and Smart TV.

However if the  company actually belives that these cuts can prevent ” the collapse of yahoo” it must be day dreaming.. Unless yahoo starts focusing on the core products it has ( search/ content and video) these cuts and bruises will only  be cosmetic in nature

The cuts will reduce Yahoo!’s ranks to 9,000 employees and fewer than 1,000 contractors, and save an estimated $400m in operating costs. Additionally, Yahoo! plans to sell off around $1bn worth of its holdings, including real estate and patents.

 Meanwhile the latest financial results published yesterday shows Yahoo is loosing its ground further in online search and display advertising, facing increasingly tough competition from rivals Facebook (FB) and Alphabet’s Google (GOOG).

For yahoo this sacking will save the company of of 4 billion USD.The cuts will include closing offices in Dubai, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Madrid and Milan, and the end of products such as Games and Smart TV. The cuts will reduce Yahoo!’s ranks to 9,000 employees and fewer than 1,000 contractors, and save an estimated $400m in operating costs. Additionally, Yahoo! plans to sell off around $1bn worth of its holdings, including real estate and patents.

Meanwhile  Inside Yahoo ,employee motivation is at its lowest, Some employees at Yahoo are so fed up of Marissa Mayer that they have given her a snarky little nickname called “Evita,” in reference to Eva Peron, the former wife of Argentinian dictator Juan Peron, known for her rise to power and desire for fame. However things were not always this way for Marissa .

Marissa Mayer took over as the Google blue eyed lady .. and many were relieved to have someone as Marissa as the CEO. as unlike her predecessors who were more from the entertainment industry working with movie studios or mainstream media industry. Mayer represented  a quintessential ” new media  with just the right background and skills
Mayer bought with her  at Yahoo an enormous understanding of consumer web , technology and deep insights on product development, strategy and operational Innovativeness.  However despite a good start at Yahoo  , she lost her steam and along with that the support of some of her key investors and people .

Last year the number of departures at Yahoo, exceeded one third of its workforce. Citing a Glassdoor survey, the report said that only 34% of Yahoo employees are keen to stay .. while a whopping 52% employees are keen to get out .. while rest 12% as not yet decided

fastest growing US Metropolitan areas by number of new companies

Which are the top 10 Fastest growing Metropolitan areas in United states ?. The chart below shows how the individual states ranks in terms of new companies  who are setting up shops there .Our Reading is Atlanta might overtake NY and LA ( ranked currentlt no 1 and no 2) as a lot of companies are set to Georgia. Georgia is one of the most business-friendly states in the country, largely due to their cost savings—state job-tax credits, exemptions, development funds and lower corporate-tax rates, for starters—and Atlanta’s strategic location, namely access to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the busiest airport in the world.

" US fastest growing metropolitan areas witnessing  job boom "

The metro areas of  New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles  remains the top 3 fastest growing Met cities, by virtue of some of  the biggest number of companies being located in those areas. They  generate a boost to the local economy, leading to  increased economic activity. These 3 METS have been able to  keep up their  top 3 positions  since 2007. Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas and San Francisco  make up the  4th, 5th and 6th positions respectively .They have shuffled positions over the last seven years, but each has consistently placed among the top 10.

However Atlanta  is gearing up to  give the top 3 Metros a lot to worry about with  the news of Mercedes-Benz USA relocating their headquarters to Atlanta from New Jersey in 2017  (come 2017, their $100 million headquarters will call The Big Peach home)

The automaker will be joining the ranks of 20 Fortune 500 companies currently headquartered in Georgia (and 33 Fortune 1000 companies). Philadelphia and Miami  Metros have been seeing increasing business deveopment since the last few years

Apple’s shrinking Ipad business vs stunning Iphone success

The study of 2 contrasting products from Apple stable : iphone vs iPad

Apple's growth comparison: iPhone vs iPad "

" iPad vs iPhone  sales"
The Ipad continues to bleed as the IPhone continue to ride on unprecedented growth. From a peak of 25 million Ipads  in December 2014.

Ipad shipments  has slumped to 9.9 million last quarter, down 20% year-over-year. However it still managed to do about $4.3 billion this quarter , but whats disappointing, is that this was the first time  that Apple shipped fewer than 10 million iPad’s in a quarter since the June 2011 quarter.

 In contrast the story of iPhone is something remarkable.The very fact that iPhone manages to sell upgraded versions year after year, without a  radical change in its product is remarkable. This quarter iPhone made up 63% of  overall Apple revenue ,selling more than 48 million  iPhone’s a 22% YoY growth

The biggest growth for Apple came from China, as sales grew  99% year-over-year,mainly due to the early launch of the iPhone there this year.
