Top U.K. PC brand goes belly-up

Top U.K. PC brand goes belly-up

There are plenty of things about England we don't quite get--Marmite, inherited titles, and so on. Apparently, they have their preferred brand of PCs over there, too. Granville Technology Group is Britain's largest computer manufacturer, thanks to its popular Tiny and Time PC brands and associated retail stores. But even with more than 2 million systems in homes, offices, and schools around the United Kingdom, the company is about to go into bankruptcy (or administration, as they call it on that side of the pond). The BBC reports that the company's retail stores have been shut and that all but 100 of 1,600 employees will lose their jobs.
