Report: Meg Whitman will likely be named HP’s new CEO later today (updated)

Whitman will replace current HP boss Léo Apotheker, who has attracted much criticism after shaking up the company in the last few months. Apotheker recently laid off 500 employees in HP’s WebOS division, killed the WebOS-equipped TouchPad after just six weeks on the market, bought software firm Autonomy for $10 billion and announced he would explore spinning off HP’s PC division.
