Yes, during the conference call, HP's CEO laid a blame on PALM -- for sinking the company's profitability. If webOS indeed didn't work out for HP's tablets and mobile phones, how would webOS ever find its future in the embedded market? Of course, HP made it clear that what failed wasn't webOS but webOS devices.

Saint Augustine defined pride as: "the love of one's own excellence". Two pride engineers made it a bunch of myopic, egocentric self proclaimed excellent economist will destroy it. CBS was worth the destruction of Westinghouse Electric. Entertainment of questionable content was worth the destruction of one of the best technological company. I hope they give back the HP name to the old instrument division.

That's exactly what it sounds like. The cloud and business analytics? If I didn't know better, I would wonder if today is April 1st and this is some kind of bad joke.

There has to be a reason no one has yet to compete in the Tablet space. Apple, love em or hate em, got it right. Price, Functionality, usefullness, battery life, weight, size, etc. Other are just not competing. Where was the touchpad better than the ipad? Even a blind CEO should have seen that there is a problem. HP should have never came out with a half baked product. No wonder it was DOA. Come on Amazon, AMAZE ME!

Hmm, why does this sound like: "We want to stop doing what we're doing well and do something else instead"? Bizarre.

If they wanted market share, they should have priced it take business away from Android.. Ie., Nook type pricing. But they didn't. I'm hoping to hit up my HP buddies for firesale prices...

HP's actions here seem pretty extreme to me. I guess it is a thin line between bold, decisive leadership and throwing in the towel prematurely, but I am kind of just in shock.

Wow. So the Palm acquisition was a complete waste of money, and management believes that its PC business unit will not remain #1 in PC sales if that business remains part of HP? I wonder how long they will remain in the printer business? But the really sad revelation in the article is the notion that software might be the main driver of HP's corporate future. As anyone who has ever installed an HP printer driver will attest, software is not exactly one of HP's core competencies!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
