A shadow of a man using his mobile phone is cast near Microsoft logo at the 2014 Computex exhibition in TaipeiHELSINKI/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp announced more big cuts to its smartphone business on Wednesday, just two years after it bought handset maker Nokia in an ill-fated attempt to take on market leaders Apple Inc and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. In a move that clearly puts the stamp of two-year chief executive Satya Nadella on the U.S. company, Microsoft said it would shed up to 1,850 jobs, most of them in Finland, and write down $950 million from the business. It did not say how many employees currently work on smartphones in the group as a whole.

Chairman and chief executive of Alibaba Group Ma reacts during a session at the WEF in Dalian(Reuters) - U.S. regulators are investigating Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's accounting practices to determine whether they violated federal laws, the Chinese e-commerce company said, news that sent its shares down nearly 7 percent on Wednesday. Alibaba, a massive business selling to a growing middle class in the world's most populous country, said it was being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC focused on the accounting for logistics firm Cainiao Network, which Alibaba owns with several courier companies in China, as well as operating data from its Singles' Day, an annual sale that accounts for more than the combined sales of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping events in the United States, according to Alibaba's annual report filed on Tuesday.
