About 1,500 jobs will go after the UK's largest computer maker, which produces Tiny and Time PCs, has gone into administration and closed its 78 shops. "The Group has fallen victim to the continued price deflation in the personal computer market," said the administrators Grant Thornton UK LLP. All directors except the non-executive chairman of Granville Technology Group have left. The GMB unions has sought urgent talks after the firm began laying off staff. "The GMB has been aware of the problem for the past 10 days because our members have been asked to take holidays or not get paid," said GMB official Graham Coxon. There are over two million Tiny and Time computers in schools and homes around the UK, and the PCs are widely available for sale in stores such as Tesco, Asda and Woolworths. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/4719833.stm Shame for their customers but I doubt anyone else will mind the demise of Tiny/Time's poor PCs.
