Stock outlooks are just liberal bias and the company is really going to dominate the market in November.

Has HP bailed out of Itanium yet? Best investment Intel made in the 1990s was starting that impossible project. Scared off or distracted the competition, leaving room to grow x86.

And just think what marvelous things she could have done for California!

This is a cautionary tale for anyone who thinks business experience is an automatic qualification for political office. I'm looking at you, potential Romney voters.

Oracle won't support it anymore.

I guess the politards need to infest the other tabs because Obama got a shellackin' in the debate last night.

Nope. Itanium is still used in HP mid-level systems that support the HP 9000 environment. The latest revision to the Itanium chipset was in 2010. It's still alive and kicking.

Oh, I'm sorry. Did Whitman not run for office promising to use her business experience to fix California's woes? I must have her confused with some other failure who ushered a once solid company to the grave.

Since Whitman took the helm in September 2011, the stock has fallen about 35 percent.

She has said it will take five years for the turnaround to be effective.


Translation: Don't fire me until the stock is worth 0.

If you're still holding HP stock after they put Meg in charge, I don't know what to tell you.

First Fiorina and now Meggers. HP is doomed

You forgot Mark "The Bean Counter" Hurd and that other worthless guy in between. Smegma Whitman is currently moving all the jobs to H3C in China. They have already stopped all network development in Roseville to begin the transition of their SW/HW to China. She pretty much works from the same book as her friend Mittons, off-shore all jobs except for the executive layer, claim that you have created jobs, then wander off with your other 1%-ers complaining about how the economy is bad and all the people in the US can't find work because they are too lazy.

Smegma may have been able to auction crap off, but running a manufacturing concern is a different animal. She will fail.

HP died long ago. It's time to bury it.

I used to love dropping HP equipment. You know why I dropped it? It was outta respect.

Its always weird to see a company that used to do so well when I was younger just hit the skids. And the funny thing is other companies dont learn form the mistakes made before them.

Not sure what your confusion is. IBM turned around over 15 years ago. They have vast amounts of innovation going, far more than any other US company, and tons of solid revenue streams.

I'm using an HP PC right now, so I'm...uh...*looks upthread*...crap, someone already used that meme. So I'll go with my backup comment: "Haha women suck at being executives."
