In the News Hard to believe, but articles are popping up at business websites claiming that venerable Hewlett-Packard may fail. In their most recent fiasco, HP wrote off a loss of $8.8 of their $11.1 US billion acquisition of Autonomy and have alleged fraud in the deal. Revenue is down 7% from a year ago and the stock has hit a 10-year low. The company is laying off 27K employees but that may not be enough. Some speculate HP might be broken up into parts with buy-outs involved. This article from last May offers a good in-depth analysis of how all these problems came to pass.

WiFi printers enable you to have one printer for the whole house while having several computers and laptops in different rooms. (used by different people)

As an HP printer owner that uses it only in WiFi mode let me tell you this: the weak point of these printers are the drivers.

Once in a while we loose connectivity to the printer with two different Windows 7 laptops, while printing from a MacBook never fails...
