First, they buy a t*rd like Palm and gain WebOS, then they turn around and dump the touchpad w/ WebOS 49 days after its release.Now they think they can divest themselves of their bread-and-butter PC business and compete with big blue? AYFKM?

I totally agree. What in the world is HP thinking??? I and many other people I know called HP the Apple of the PC. My next computer was going to be an HP because I've only had good experiences with them (and their designs were pretty sick and inexpensive). Now I'm going to have to settle for some other cheap brand, or maybe I'll just get a Mac. I'm buying Apple stock now. They will have a monopoly on the personal computer market once HP goes.

Yeah, HP made some questionable moves but you should have been buying shares at $23. My guess is that you will never see that price again.

It didn't take long. They are below $23 since early May.

You're right, contrary dude. Hpq will likely hit bk before then
