This final note on the way out, just to close the loop on a couple of stories we’ve been following.

As predicted, Hewlett-Packard did indeed announce huge layoffs today — 27,000 people, about 8 percent of its total workforce. CEO Meg Whitman says it’ll save the company something more than $3 billion.

Also, Facebook. Get a load of this: There are reports out today — three or four of them — saying Facebook’s talking to the New York Stock Exchange about moving its listing over there after Nasdaq blew the IPO.
