In the News Hewlett-Packard Co. , the world's largest computer maker, is in talks to buy [database search software vendor] Autonomy Corp. for about $10 billion and plans to spin off its personal-computer business, people with direct knowledge of the matter said. Is this an indicator of the Post PC Era?

Ouch. I hoped they wouldn't give up so soon, but it was probably inevitable. :^(

The best (only) way that things advance quickly and improve for the customer is when there is lively competition between different companies. Mobile is interesting (and PCs are boring) right now for this exact reason.

Oh, well. Maybe I can pick up a bargain or two...
