o By Function


o By Affliation or lack of membership


o What country did they go to...


o Who handles the "contract"


o What secret soceity or cabal or gov't unit controlled their BOSS


o Offshoring by American Firms that have sneakily changed incorporation from U.S. to Other


o What companies are American incorporated

Dell - Evil? - Call Center - Bangalore - Why?


We used to be big fans of Dell Computer and "Uncle Mike" the CEO...


We used to tell people to buy and invest in their stock...


If you bought 7,000 dollars worth of dell stock in the 80s/90s, you'd be a multi-millionaire now...


But things change... And companies get creedy and forget their core customer base and reputation.




As the following press release shows:




Dell Opens New Contact Center in India


GURGAON, India (September 8, 2006) — The contact center in Gurgaon is expected to add 700 to 1,000 positions to Dell's India employment of 10,000.


Dell announced that the company is expanding its operations in India by setting up its fourth customer contact center here.


Dell has customer contact centers in the Indian cities of Bangalore, Hyderabad and Mohali that are part of a 30-site global customer contact network.


The contact center in Gurgaon is expected to add 700 to 1,000 positions to Dell's India employment of 10,000. The company expects to be in a 250,000 square foot built-to-suit location by the end of the year.


Since establishing its first customer contact center in India at Bangalore in 2001, the company's teams in India have pioneered processes and practices for technical support, call planning and staffing, and provide frontline support to Dell customers around the world, regardless of product, time or location, according to the company. India is the only country in Dell's customer contact network that supports customers in all geographic regions.


'Our teams in India have integrated well with Dell's global operations,' Kevin Rollins, CEO of Dell. 'As we continue to attract new customers the world over, we have successfully expanded our global service network and our talented team in India has played a key role.'


Rollins also said the company plans to double the size of its India-based product development team during the next two years based on its success in supporting the company's enterprise systems, a strategic product area for Dell.

We don't know "exactly" what kind of buidlings these people are working in... But we know they are started out in "office trailers" in muddy fields...

It's so disgusting its turns our stomachs...

By leveraging the Global Business Solution Centre as a development resource, rapid and timely enhancements to the solution can be made to drive even higher value for the user," it said.

Tryscience is another community related programme launched, which reinvents science learning, recreates the interactive experience of onsite visits, and provides science projects as well as multimedia adventure field trips for museum visitors - primarily children, their parents and teachers.




Although somewhat "disguised" and "veiled", The IBM India "Software Labs" and "Consulting Groups" are the NEW MAIN BASE of IBM. They say "one of number in the world" but its not really true.


I wonder how its going to AFFECT their U.S. PATENTS to being developing "stuff" in INDIA. I guess that's one for lawyers and the U.S. Government.


Here they are!:


India Software Lab at Bangalore and Pune:


Software Innovation Center, Gurgaon


Global Business Solution Center in Bangalore


Software Group the largest provider of middleware and the second-largest software business in the world


- Transformation and integration solutions that are built on the IBM WebSphere middleware platform.


- Information leveraging solutions that are built on a portfolio of Data management (DB2) tools.


- Lotus product line to help organisations leverage collective know-how.


- Tivoli range of products to enable organisations to manage complex technological infrastructure.


- Rational range of Application Development Tools to help software development houses develop


So sad! To see another U.S. Technology Company RELOCATE to INDIA. But then again IBM is "rumored" to be a "nazi" organization. :)

Innovating from India to drive global business growth and empower the next billion customers in emerging markets


Imagine being able to work on products across all business groups of Microsoft. You can do it here at the Microsoft India Development Center in Hyderabad! MSIDC, which is Microsoft's largest product development center outside the headquarters in Redmond, is recognized as an industry leader with teams working on the frontiers of innovation and incubating technologies and products which impact millions of Microsoft customers worldwide.


MSIDC has developed and released many core products and technologies to the global market since its inception in 1998. Our teams have end-to-end responsibility for every product, feature or technology they develop. They own the strategy, gather customer requirements from across the world, create multi-version release plans, architect, design, test and release the product to the market. On all other Microsoft products we work collaboratively with our counterparts in Redmond.


MSIDC is a key part of Microsoft's future strategic direction. Located in a sprawling 42-acre state-of-the-art campus designed to mirror Redmond quality standards, our 1200-plus employees get to work in a lively and fun-filled environment which combines the best of technology with great recreational amenities and helps them achieve the desired work-life balance.


The center has filed 180 PATENTS IN THREE YEARS.


It has a 42 ACRE CAMPUS! Bigger than Redmond?




Microsoft Worldwide: 79,000 Employees


Microsoft Redmond Area: 36,000 Employees


Microsoft Campus: 344 Acres


Microsoft Patents: 5,000 Patents To Date.




The company, which a decade ago filed only a few hundred patent applications per year, now annually files roughly 3,000 applications.


Microsoft India: 1,400 Employees


Microsoft India Campus 42 Acres


Microsoft India Patents: 180 Patent Applications in Last Three Years.






(Meaning the people who design and write their product code.)


That's right!




I would say yes... But it's unconfirmed.


And what's the deal with THE INDIA PATENTS? Filed in the U.S.? and Not India? or India and then the U.S.?


I think these "technology" companies have A PROBLEM.

Silicon Valley Losing Middle-Wage Jobs


Silicon Valley Losing Middle-Wage Jobs






Published: February 19, 2008


SAN FRANCISCO — Silicon Valley is in danger of creating its own digital divide.


The California region is losing its middle-class work force at a significant rate, according to an annual report that tracks the economic, social and environmental health of the region that is the nation's technology heartland.


The 2008 Index of Silicon Valley — which this year was sponsored by Joint Venture: Silicon Valley Network, a public-private partnership, and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, a nonprofit — found that from 2002 to 2006, middle-wage jobs fell to 46 percent of the work force, from 52 percent.


At the same time, while the percentage of higher-end jobs rose slightly — to 27 percent from 26 — lower-wage jobs expanded to 27 percent, from 22 percent of the work force. In all, more than 50,000 middle-income jobs have disappeared over the four years measured by the study.


The vanishing jobs — defined as those paying $30,000 to $80,000 — represent workers who had been in the lower part of the white-collar pyramid, including secretaries, clerks and customer support representatives. The picture was blurred, however, by growth in some blue-collar, middle-income professions like electricians and plumbers, and several white-collar areas like computer support technicians.


The consequence of the shift may undercut some of the basic mechanisms of the Valley economy, according to the authors of the report, by making upward mobility more difficult.


'If you lose the middle, it's harder to support the top,' said Doug Henton, an economist at Collaborative Economics, a research and consulting firm in Mountain View, Calif., that helps prepare the annual report.


The short-range outlook for the region appears to be more positive, with the overall pace of job gains outpacing the nation's.


For example, for the first time since 2001, when the dot-com sector was imploding, median household income rose. Silicon Valley added 28,000 jobs, for an increase of 1.7 percent in 2007. Over all, the region is far more wealthy than the rest of the country, with per capita income 57 percent higher than the national average.


Despite fears of losses in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, the region continues to see a healthy in-flow of talent from outside the United States. More than 17,000 foreign citizens moved to the region last year, reversing a decline since the number peaked in 2001 at above 30,000.


Forty-eight percent of the households of the region speak a language other than English in the home.


Reflecting the changing boundaries of what is defined as Silicon Valley, this year the authors of the report added all of San Mateo County's work force. It was the first change to the definition of the region by the study, which was first published in 1995. By moving the northern border of the Valley past the San Francisco airport, the area now reflects more of the biotechnology orientation of companies like Genentech. The region does not include San Francisco.


Venture capital investment continued to climb at a healthy clip during 2007, rising by 11 percent. Sixty-two percent of the so-called clean tech venture investment for California was invested in Silicon Valley during the year.


The Valley continues to stand apart because it is a center of technical innovation, said Russell Hancock, president of Joint Venture. But he also said it was unlikely that the region would be unaffected by a recession or the subprime mortgage crisis.


Still, the researchers behind the study said the Valley was distinguished by the flexibility of its economy and its ability to adapt to changing conditions.


'What we're talking about is a Valley that continues to reinvent itself, and it's not in any one sector,' Mr. Henton said.


One notable category in which the region lags behind its international competitors is home broadband networks. Only 51 percent of the region has access to broadband Internet — defined as more than 200 kilobits per second. In contrast, 65 percent of the households in Japan and 94 percent in South Korea are wired to at least that speed.




Silicon Valley is DISAPPEARING!!!


Next Silicon Alley....


(Thank the Almighty God for the "Silicon Pennisula..." :)




But thats were these tech jobs are going...


Does America Exist? As we know it?


I am beginning to wonder...

Dell Trying to Sell Factories - DELL IS GONE!


Report: Dell Trying to Sell Factories






by Reuters


(Reuters) - Dell Inc is trying to sell computer factories around the world in efforts to cut cost and improve profitability, the Wall Street Journal said.


In recent months, Dell has approached contract computer manufacturers with offers to sell the plants, the paper said, citing people familiar with the matter.


One person briefed on the plan told the Journal that he expects Dell to sell most, possibly all, of its factories "within the next 18 months".


The most likely buyers of Dell's factories will be big contract manufacturers, most of which are based in Asia, the paper said.


Dell's factories were originally tailored for a PC market that was driven by corporate customers ordering large volumes of desktop PCs.


But over the past three years, growth has shifted to laptops sold to consumers at retail stores. Round Rock, Texas-based Dell has lagged behind competitors in coming up with a streamlined system to build portable PCs.


Dell could face several obstacles in selling its plants. Contract manufacturers may be hesitant to buy factories in places with high labor costs, like the United States, a person with knowledge of the talks told the Journal.


And some facilities could be encumbered by agreements with local governments. Dell's North Carolina plant, for example, received several million dollars of state and local tax incentives that are contingent on the factory meeting certain employment and local-investment goals by 2015.


Though Dell's plants are still regarded as efficient at churning out desktop PCs, within the industry, company-owned factories aren't considered the least expensive way to produce laptops.


Contract manufacturers can generally produce computers for less money because their entire operations are narrowly focused on finding efficiencies in manufacturing, as opposed to large firms like Dell, which must balance marketing and other considerations.


No one was available at Dell for immediate comment.


(Reporting by Sweta Singh in Bangalore; Editing by Sharon Lindores)




Dell is now a "SHELL AMERICAN CORPORATION" with its factories on the chopping block and its call center and support IN BANGALORE INDIA!


It should be taken off the NASDAQ STOCK EXCHANGE.


Contact the SEC about it's "shell incorporation" structure.


I would be "surprised" if they were still an American Corporation. Maybe the Cayman Islands? Or Dubai?

Re: Dell Trying to Sell Factories - DELL IS GONE!


When it comes to business there is no such thing as boarders except where laws and restrictions are concerned. There is no such thing as loyalty to one individual or group it is about the greater whole. There is no such thing as loyalty to a specific economy or country. There is no such thing as loyalty to a specific government unless that government can pass laws to undermine the bottom line which is profit. At the end of the day it is about money to the people who own the company and about getting control or power within the company. Everybody and everything else is un-important. Gone are the days of the average person getting a good paying job for a life time and in their old age retirement. Some still do it but those are the more educated upper class professional career minded individuals. Not for the average Joe out of high school who wants to get married, settle down, and start a family and is unconcerned with a professional career. It takes both a wife and a husband working for most people to survive now days and jobs come and go. People who can get a good job and keep it are better off but sooner or later any job on a daily bases is subject to go when it can be replaced because companies don,t want to spend money they want to make money. Cutting Joe's job or moving that job to another country where it can be done cheaper is always good business. As for the trading indexes they have their own rules and regulations about what companies can or can not be listed and they have their procedures for listing or not listing those companies.
