LAYOFFS_BOBS_THUMB
“Simplify, restructure and grow.” That’s the new internal mantra inside RealNetworks (RNWK) and the one under which the company continues to cut jobs. On Thursday, Real said it would sack another four percent of its workforce, about 60 employees, as it prepares for the spinoff of its Rhapsody subscription music service and perhaps later, its games business as well.

Yesterday’s cuts follow a similarly sized action last November and a larger round of layoffs in December 2008.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
