IBM sells PC unit to Chinese company

I'm sure everybody saw this, but if you didn't, it's the end of an era. An article from the Washington Post (also reported in many other places) details the sale of IBM's PC unit to Lenovo Group Ltd., China's largest PC manufacturer.

The company that started the PC (not personal computer, that was Apple, I'm talking about the PC) is now out of the business officially. Except, of course, if you count the 20% or so of the resultant company that IBM will retain as an investor.
