    Asus merging EEE PC and netbook divisions: Who's next?


    First, the “news”: Digitimes is reporting that Asustek is considering a merger of their PC and notebook – really netbook – divisions. This means the two divisions will work as one cohesive unit which means lots of people will probably get fired. Fair enough. Now what does this mean in the macro sense?
