PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "'We are working on this,' Ms. Whitman told Fox Business Network in an interview. 'We have to ultimately offer a smartphone because in many countries of the world that would be your first computing device... We are a computing company.'" On the same day the Pre 2 a reader is loaning me arrives in the mail. This is just cruel. Update: "HP Bender Android smartphone appears in benchmark details". Eh.

HP should have a technologist as CEO. The worst possible CEO for technology company is a former marketing executive (Whitman, Ballmer, Fiorino, Sculley etc). They don't understand technology.

Most German technology and manufacturing companies have a PhD qualified engineer or scientist as their CEO/Chairman. The CEOs of Mercedes, BMW and Volkswagen are all PhD qualified mechanical engineers.

Tim Cook is now busy destroying Apple by focusing on short term profit at the expense of long term marketshare.
