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?

Are Autonomy really worth $10 billion?

The core of what they do is sound, but so much about their software was lazy as hell when I used in the early 2000s. Had no idea they would fetch so much, but that's enterprise for you...
