Spin off the printer division
by DW on Mon 7th Mar 2005 16:29 UTC

If HP the computer and technology company wants to survive, the best thing they could do is spin off the printer division. The printer divison, by virtute of being the most profitable, is getting all the manager attention. The printer division also really doesn´t have anything to do with the computer and technology side. If they spun that off that then they would be forced to focus on the computer part of the company and perhaps do something with the last remaining resources they have there. Because they do have valuable resources, they just have to use them.
