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."

Maybe they'll start bringing the DEC legacy back! VMS, Itaniums, terminals, all sorts of goodies that consumers don't want but nerds love. I do admire the fact that they're trying to differentiate on audio chipsets in the age of ac97 HDA crap, but Beats headphones are overpriced crap, and I have to wonder if the same is true of their soundcards.
