BBC: Microsoft warns low earnings.
« on: February 27, 2020, 08:10:45 PM »
The coronavirus would not be computer news if it would just go away.

BBC reports Microsoft and other major tech firms are going to lose earnings.

Microsoft is the latest major company to warn of a disruption as China grapples with the coronavirus outbreak.
The tech giant said because its Chinese suppliers were shutdown, manufacturing operations have been affected.
This delay could hit sales of its personal computing business including Surface tablets, Microsoft warned.
Microsoft said factories are re-opening across China, but this is happening slower than expected.
The Microsoft announcement highlights a growing problem for tech firms that rely on a complex network of suppliers in China for real-time deliveries of crucial parts.

    That's a shame. I saw in a recent newsclip, that Samsung manufacturers in S.Korea were reporting cases of the Covid-19  epidemic. This would cut down a lot of the production done by the conglomerate. This is only one of the many cases of major manufacturing companies curtailing production in the wake of the pandemic. smh
