More hypocrisy. Universal Music to cut 1,350 jobs, citing piracy et al. But really, as per industrial revolutions et al, surely we want companies to need less jobs? Isn't that the point of technology - that it makes tasks more efficient, more automated? Populations are booming, technology should mean that either we are more catered for whilst we do less work (as the price of necessary living resources comes down due to improved processes), or more diverse jobs are created, rather than a tendency towards larger, less efficient companies.

Hmm.
