Just days after the Palm acquisition became official, word on the street has HP laying off some Palm employees already.  According to AllThingsD, "sources (once) close to the company" are suggesting that layoffs are taking place, and different numbers are flying around.  The good news, for Palm employees, is that the numbers will probably be in the double digits as opposed to the hundreds.  A spokeswoman told AllThingsD that “part of the integration strategy is consolidation of functions and operations, as appropriate.”  Sounds pretty businessy to me, why not just say "we need to trim off the fat?"  I know, I know, that would never happen.  But in any case, the good news is that Palm now has some stability and it's good to know that "Palm employees overall are enthusiastic about having the financial stability and global scale necessary to complete their vision.”  I do feel bad, though, for those employees who will be avoiding "The Bobs" in the coming weeks.  Good luck Palm employees!
