HP Begins Palm Layoffs

We recently reported on Hewlett-Packard's plan to buy Palm for $1.2 billion. With the buyout process ended it seems there are plans to clean house with some of the redundant positions within the new organization. When something like this happens, it's only logical to cut back where you can by doing away with some roles that are already in place, like administration. There has been no official communication on where these cut backs are going to come from, or how many they plan to let go. 

Is this a smart move for HP and Palm? Head over to the forums to discuss.
