In the News "Meg Whitman, eBay's former chief executive, will likely be named to lead Hewlett-Packard after markets close on Thursday, according to a person familiar with board decisions. The decision to replace Leo Apotheker, the company's chief executive, after only 11 months on the job is all but made, lacking only a final vote, said the person, who is not authorized to speak for the board. While Mr. Apotheker is going, his strategy, including consideration of spinning off H.P.'s personal computer business from other parts of the company, will remain in place."

Whitman, just like every politician/CEO will doom the company, in that she will make it all about herself, and not about the better interests of HP and its shareholders. She's a publicity hound, and that's likely to be a serious problem for HP. I hope they reconsider.
