I didn't read the article (mistake #1, no doubt), but is 18 months suddenly "long-term" now? Haven't all those high-priced MBA folks learned that killing your company for short-term quarterly profits (to rake in those outstanding bonuses) isn't a good strategy?

Feh. I remember when HP made good things.
