HPs problem
by modman on Mon 7th Mar 2005 13:59 UTC

HP's Problem is that they want to be to many Things and their market does not allow for that. the PC market is cut throat. the Big Iron market is cut throat and the digital imaging market is cut throat.

HP wants to be in all 3 of those cut throat markets and succeed. that is just stupid. maybe they could do 2 of the markets, but not 3.

they need to change focus and spin off one of their divisions.
