You think that maybe HP might get back to the business of making
products rather than making mergers?

Products based on what? Itanic?

Other than the Sacred Printer Business - which I expect will be spun out of
harms way - HP's future is the standard "death from a thousand cuts"...

Ah, so they've been eating "canned" dog food too?

Unfortunate as that is. HP was once one of the greats. I thought
spinning off Aligent was a mistake, but I was *way* wrong. It's doing
just fine well away from ground-zero.

"... Fiorina cancelled her lunch at the White House ..."

The board actually derailed a Presidential photo op?
That's quite a slap-down.

Still waiting to see who replaces her ...

What a surprise. The big computer-industry mergers always turn out to
be a disaster, it seems. Recall the Burroughs/Sperry merger.
