Apple pulls back from India
First Apple CEO Steve Jobs delayed a planned trip to India, which would have been his first official visit since visiting the country as a tourist in the 1970s. Now the company, according to the Times of India, has dismissed 30 Indian employees at a recently opened tech-support center in Bangalore. An Apple spokesman told the Times that the company had "re-evaluated" its operations in India and now plans to expand tech-support operations in other countries instead. The Unofficial Apple Weblog notes that Dell pulled back on some Indian tech-support operations a few years ago, and congratulated Apple on abandoning its plans to answers calls in India. Apple still has a small sales and marketing operation in the country.
