    Looks like lots of technology and software research and development staff have been cut; not top and mid-echelons of business strategy folks, where the roots of the company's problems lie . Where is future innovation and cutting edge technology for Big Blue going to come from if the innovators and product development teams are being cut, who will then end up at competitor firms?
