    Published: September 20, 2006
    Hewlett-Packard conducted feasibility studies on planting spies in news bureaus of two major publications as part of an investigation of leaks from its board, an individual briefed on the company’s review of the operation said yesterday.
    The studies, referred to in a Feb. 2 draft report for a briefing of senior management, are said to have included the possibility of placing investigators acting as clerical employees or cleaning crews in the San Francisco offices of CNET and The Wall Street Journal.

    Okay, dammit ... I hate this shit.

    Please, guys ... when you post something like this, don't just post a link with cryptic (or no) commentary. Post the first three or four graphs so we're not tempted to break out the pancake-wearing rabbit.

    You're right, Coffee. Sorry.

    Accepted ... but if it happens again, I'm putting the bunny to work.

    The plot ended when potential spies discovered the difference between an HP salary and a newspaper salary.
