Sony To Exit PC Business

Sony will sell off its lackluster PC division (apparently to Japan Industrial Partners) and focus on spinning off its TV business into a standalone entity by June. Sony said it will cut 5,000 jobs worldwide by the end of this fiscal year. Link

Ex-Sony president Kunitake Ando revealed that Steve Jobs wanted Sony to sell a Mac OS-running Vaio laptop in 2001. But it instead went ahead with Windows as Sony’s team opposed. Oh boi, how times have changed. Link
