The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft to double size of India facilities

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft to double size of India facilities: "Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer is breaking ground next week on a project that would double the size of its new facilities in Hyderabad, India, a move that could heighten concerns about U.S. corporations' increasing use of technology workers overseas.
The company insists that most of its work will continue to be done in Redmond, but it appears to be accelerating expansion plans in India.
At the same time, it recently laid off technical workers in Redmond and slowed its rate of job creation in the U.S.
Microsoft has also suspended work on a second local campus, in Issaquah, and last month it gave up more than half the land it had reserved for that project."
