2,000 more jobs to be cut at HP

SAN FRANCISCO — Hewlett-Packard Co. is planning to cut about 2,000 more jobs than it had previously announced as chief executive Meg Whitman tries to turn the company around.

In a regulatory filing Monday, the computer and printer maker said it will eliminate 29,000 jobs by October 2014, up from the 27,000 cuts it announced in May when HP employed about 350,000 people.
