    probably that, and equally probable also adding talent as they expand with the heavy investment HP is making in them.

    they would have needed to hire even with all those who left having stayed on.

    my money is on both happening.

    either way, its good news when you consider the alternative, no intention to grow bigger than the current size.
    There are four lights.

    This is a forum for WebOS enthusiasts. It is not a place for negative rants about Palm, HP or WebOS.
    Criticism is important but so is a positive environment. Remember, we're here because we love WebOS.
