Default HP Hates Their Autonomy...

Looks like they are claiming that they got hoodwinked by the peeps at Autonomy...

HP takes $8.8 billion charge on Autonomy accounting improprieties | ITworld

Seems like another Enron fiasco to me.

Sounds like the Kevin O'Leary Deal when he sold his junk company SoftKey to Mattell. Kevin invested 10G initially and sharked out most of the competition with his ruthlessness and no holds bar approach, then sold it off to Mattel for over 3Billion. Mattell lost a fortune !
