Digitimes joins Barclays in providing negative PC commentary: the site reports Taiwanese notebook contract manufacturers have begun slashing orders to component vendors, and that this could be a sign June shipments will be lower than expected. It's added PC OEMs have become conservative with their orders due to the impact of Europe's macro troubles, though contract manufacturers still expect strong 2H demand on the back of Windows 8 (MSFT) and Intel's (INTC) Ivy Bridge.
