    Yup, the boss just sent out an email to all employees.

    Apparently we're having a meeting tomorrow. I'm sure someone will ask about WebOS.

    There is a press conference about it at 5pm (or might have been at 5pm - I get confused by the time difference).

    Conference call 2pm Pacific today: edit: Of course I was posting too quickly and broke the link

    Check out the jump in stock price today: Hewlett-Packard Company: NYSE:HPQ quotes & news - Google Finance Looks to me like two things happened: 1) Investors found out about it after hours yesterday and 2) Investors liked it.

    I guess they read my post here on precentral from 10/5/11. It amazes me that some people can't see the forest for the trees they don't like.

    The PC business is the necessary foundation to tie it's other products together and represent a full service source to customers. HP's software isn't big enough to compete with the big dogs like Cisco, IBM, or SAP. Yes, a two percent profit margin is not going to draw investors but, consider the economy and what is built on top of the two percent product base. Customer loyalty, brand recognition, and the ability to offer integrated products and services. Do what ever you can to increase the profit margin on PCs while still delivering a quality product. Grow the software and services profit centers until they are dominant entities in the market. Then, consider splitting off something.

    You don't shoot yourself in both feet by saying we are spinning off PCs (foundation of business) and then say we are going to grow software and services to provide a greater return for investors.

    Todd: "continued to focus on windows tablets"

    Todd: "working quickly to make the right decisions about the webOS products"

    Meg: big on windows 8 tablets.

    Meg: "we'll make a decision about webos in the next couple of months".

    So it's a focus on windows 8 tablets and vagueness about webos.

    yup, just what I thought, they are still gonna try to sell webos.

    not good news.


    **personal assumption; nobody said that, I can't even get the webcast.

    they said yes to psg but not webos
    that's not good it is taking them so long
    an ambivalent corp is reason for kerris to leave
    if not enough love, sell it to a parent who will appreciate and foster it
