Skype confirms / denies job cuts

Yoda statement

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Voice over Internet Protocol provider Skype has neither confirmed nor denied it is cutting jobs at its London office.

We thought maybe someone at Skype could give us some more information.

The eBay-owned company sent us this gnomic statement: "Change has always been a constant at Skype and will continue to be. We will keep re-shaping our business to take advantage of the immediate and short-term opportunities in front of us."
