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.

Unlike their consumer line, I've had (mostly) good vibes coming from guys that use Z-series workstations, whether Linux or Windows based. A bloke I know who specializes in crowd-simulation work swears by them.

Same could also be said for HP's Elitebook range of enterprise laptops, or at least that used to be the case a bit more than a year ago.
