How HP bought Autonomy, how T-Mobile is preparing for the iPhone, and 3 more "Hows" of note.

It is Friday. We have all worked our first full week following last week, in which only 2.5 of the work days really mattered.

You deserve a chance to see some of the pieces from an elevated height.

You deserve five articles with the word "How" at the beginning of the headline, is what you deserve.
