Exodus

So many people are leaving, it’s becoming a dizzying exodus. Hard to tell if it’s strictly voluntary? And now Lila want to force people, people who’ve been highly effective working from home, back into the office 3 days per week? It almost feels as... —  read more 

Apple MFi hearing devices

Apple recently announced “new bi- directional hearing aids” operable via MFi I can’t wait for Bose leadership to convince themselves that it’s no big deal and not a threat. I guess many in that group will be axed by the young, fresh-faced... —  read more

Good advice

I was laid off earlier this year. My advice is to be easy on yourself. It’s like a death. I gave myself a few days to grieve and feel bad without beating myself up, then focused on moving forward. Didn’t think of big picture but just tried to... —  read more 

Can MIT sell Bose?

From a logistical point of view, can MIT sell Bose, even if doesn't have any seats on the board? Typically, a struggling company either files for Chapter 7 or 11, or find a buyer for more investment right? What can Bose do, if it continues to lose... —  read more

Now come the reorgs

Rumors of reorgs, guess it’s to be expected after so many teams were left decimated. Meetings are already being scheduled for next week. I am bracing for the next shoe to fall. What a way to live!

Excellent advice

Get your resume and skill set in order. I'm a software engineer with 30+ years behind me, and I always was working on cutting edge/current technologies - but still 30 years from college meant a lot of my algorithms - 'computer science' knowledge was... —  read more
