Yeah - Carly is a real expert when it comes to buying PC companies - like ramming that Compaq buyout through HP to serve herself a nice big bonus at the expense of shareholders. One of the biggest HP failures of all time and Carly's been giving numerous interviews lately, first on Autonomy fiasco and now Dell.
This is the way that HP CEOs are groomed - they have to initiate a big acquisition to jack up their compensation. Is it any wonder why Leo bought Autonomy?
who was the ex-ceo? probably short HPQ. But just looked, its up on stronger than normal volume so maybe someone knows something! If true, then its the first thing HP has done right in a Loooong time. Geezer knows
