At some point, you just have to assume that HP as a whole is just willfully stupid. Spending 11.5 billion without doing an incredibly detailed audit?

Pulkit,

That thumbnail image of Raymond Lane? Tell your web developer intern that displaying a 1407 x 937 jpeg at 228 x 152 in a web page doesn't actually reduce the jpeg's file size. It's still a whopping 376 KB download.

I feel as though I've fallen through a "temporal anomaly" and ended up in the mid 90s when I hear 376 KB being described as a large amount of data to download from a web page.

We do that because the Windows 8 app pulls the thumbnails into largeish tiles for display. Tiny thumbnails get resized into pixelated garbage. Hope that clears it up and sorry for the bandwidth usage.

So, Windows 8 manages to make the internet worse for for people who don't even use it? Did even Vista manage to do that?

How is it that losses of that size clouded in self-directed accusations of impropriety aren't investigated and prosecuted by regulatory agencies? Shareholders are getting shafted so hard and so regularly it's disgusting.
