HP Wants to Get Out of The PC Business

WebOS devices aren't the only thing getting the axe at HP, the company has announced that its looking to spin-off its entire PC business. This is huge news, considering that HP is the largest seller of PC's in the world.

The company is reorganizing itself around enterprise software, and simultaneously announced that it will purchase the UK database software company Autonomy for $10.2 billion.

The move is a poor harbinger for the future of the PC industry, with stagnant sales being cited as the principle reason HP's shakeup. As more people rely on smartphones and iPads to handle every-day computing tasks, do other traditional computer companies have similar transformations ahead?

Welcome to the post-PC era.
