I can't see where is the best place to post this, so Mods, please move as desired. Sony has just announced interim losses of £100m. 11 of its 65 manufacturing sites are to close, worldwide. There are to be 10,000 job losses, including 4,000 in Japan. This part-explains why they don't make tv sets anymore. CRT plant in Bridgend is already closed, no more plasmas to be branded as Sony (they never made their own) and all LCD tvs to be made in Korea at the S-LCD corp plant jointly owned by Samsung and located at the side of Samsung's factory. How can such a leader have lost its way?
