Summary:

If recent history and changes in the technology industry are any indication, HP management & board doesn’t have the stomach to do what is necessary. And that is why I find this talk of the next 75 years ironic and funny and delusional.

“We are reinventing the company and setting it up to win for the next 75 years.”

HP CEO Meg Whitman speaking at a Gartner conference.

I am all for bold statements, but if recent history and changes in technology industry are any indication, HP management & board doesn’t have the stomach to do what is necessary. The cloud’s impact on server and desktop sales is pretty profound. People want to buy devices that are not PCs and HP as a company has flip-flopped on mobile so often that it is hard to take it seriously.
