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.

Obviously we live in the land where people don't own laptops or tablets and would never want to print anything from those types or portable devices ...

Obviously, I'm on a site where people reply profusely without reading what the person they're replying to has been said a million times already...

And that's not sarcasm.
