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.

If I was or will WFR'ed be is irrelevant to the facts that HP would still need to reduce headcount. Of course my feelings would be a little bit more jaded and make no mistake I really am not happy with all of this...or the actions of HP for the last 8 years or so.
