"I am sorry to inform you that HP
is not only a brand that is well known for quality, but that indeed it has even got better under Carly."
When was the last time you dealt with an HP
product? Their laser printers are still gold but their home PCs are crap, their calculators are now crap, anything they design for consumer use is crap, including their consumer grade printers. Other than a small office or larger printer I can't think of an HP
product made in the last 4 or so years I would actually reccomend to someone.
When she came to power either the Hewletts or the Packards (I can't remember which) wanted out. She didn't do anything exceptional for the stock either. It will be interesting to see what the stock does, if it climbs today or if it tanks. From the people I know at HP
to a couple shareholders I had yet to hear anything positive about her.
She merged HP
with Compaq, a merger some people compared to watching your two best friends fall down the steps.
"So 6 years as CEO of a blue-chip IT
company is a short time now "
It sure isn't a long time especially when you consider how old HP
is, she is a flash in the pan.
Things were better when it was two guys in a dorm room.
