CA cutting 1000 jobs

The move follows a $US350 million deal to buy Nimsoft.

CA is planning to cut about 1000 jobs, or roughly 7.7 percent of its workforce, according to a document filed Tuesday with the US Securities & Exchange Commission.

The plan will also involve the consolidation of facilities. CA will incur a pre-tax restructuring charge of about US$50 million in severance and other expenses, according to the filing.

The vendor also said its fiscal 2010 earnings would fall at the low end of a previously released range of $1.46 to $1.57 per share.

CA competes with BMC, IBM and Hewlett-Packard in the IT management software arena.

The cost-cutting moves announced Tuesday follow a number of acquisitions by CA in recent months, including a US$350 million deal to buy IT performance monitoring vendor Nimsoft, which was announced in March.

Shares of CA's stock were down $1.29 to $22.56 in early trading Tuesday.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
