NOT A POLITICAL RANT FORUM. Anybody ever glance at the mess that the GE board has become? Nothing there but politics and insanity, so let us TRY to keep what little remains in some of these forums to the subject. I am glad HP beat out old CSC on a huge Navy contract. I am not glad otherwise as I cannot stand outsourcing anything and info will probably go to India no matter what happens. But, let us keep to HP and good commentary. End of line.
The Naval contract has been awarded to HP since the days of hubris Carl. It helps to pay the bills and good thing Meg did not loose it to Dell. Every bit helps when all business units have seen their top line dropped over the past few years.
Two to three more down sizing to come according to Meg's on going FIVE YEAR RECOVERY PLAN.
