Editorial With HP's high-flying CEO Carly Fiorina departing, the company's woes are well known. But how did a firm with such a storied history and vast assets get headed down the wrong path, and what do they need to do to set their course straight?

Re: Mike & Agilent

Since the Test & Measurement division was spun off into Agilent they've really degraded in my opinion. There was a time when we'd only consider HP test equipment because of the incredible support they'd provide over the lifetime of the product. Now that they're Agilent the support has gone downhill big-time! In many cases, we have to go to third-party companies to support our older HP equipment. I'm sure companies like Tektronix and National Instruments have benefited from this.
