PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Having failed to carve out a place for itself in the post-PC era, Hewlett-Packard is now taking drastic measures - by adopting Google's Android operating system to run a series of upcoming mobile devices. It's a bit of a Hail Mary pass for HP, which has fallen years behind its rivals in the mobile space. It's also a big win for Google, which adds another powerful partner to the Android ecosystem." Ugh.

Well, I wouldn't mind it if HP built computers like they build scientist stuff.

HP calculators bring quite a lot of value for the money if you don't mind going the outsider route, and I know of few pieces of computer hardware that are as predictable, well-documented, and easy to program as the average GPIB instrument.
