She said in an interview that acquisitions were a long bet and companies need to stick by them.
She singled out webOS for an example of a mistake in not sticking by it.
The quote was in the latest round of interviews she did where she also talked about knowing HP needs to make a phone as soon as they figure out the best strategy (there are no current plans apparently). I can't remember where I read the quote, sorry, maybe someone else will find it.
In looking for the quote again, I read a whole bunch of articles on HP. Apparently their Tech innovation head is also doing interviews--talking about their new cloud and software strategy.
Also found a recent article on Forbes that summed up nicely the work of webOS ports, glad someone is still hoping for webOS to come back.
