Arsenal are red, pundits have 'insights', BT and Sky splurge £4.5bn on footie rights

Mr Nobody 1

Another lost opportunity to increase the absolutely pitiful amount of money that filters down from the premier league to grassroots football.

Good luck selling those collaboration solutions. You just failed Question 1.

HPE sales slide, profits evaporate... but think of the future, CEO urges

Mr Nobody 1

Business and Management speakers will dine out on the rise and fall of HP for years.

Whitman continues to make the usual mistake of setting redundancy targets - which will be implemented by the useless middle management - and then looks surprised when all the overhead layers are still in place, the frontline has reduced and the profits have taken another dive.

How many manager layers between a consultant on site and Meg Whitman 8 years ago and now?

The definition of stupid is repeating the same action and expecting a different outcome. This company is still doing the same things it was when I left 4 years ago.

HP says 'turnaround remains on track', cuts thousands of workers

Mr Nobody 1

The Turnaround is on track.....

Don't worry - all negative results are still someone else's fault. Revenue is heading south so just in case anyone notices in our next set of results (and starts pointing in my direction), I'll throw another 16,000 bodies in the waste disposal.

Re: Nothing new

Not only does this still happen with monotonous regularity within HP, there is also the office sweepstake to see who can complete the 'mandatory training with questions so stupid you would have to have a common sense bypass to fail''. I think the record for the 30 mins on Health and Safety was around 3.

HP hammered in servers, storage, and PCs in fiscal Q3

Mr Nobody 1

green shoots ?

HP are at least one year into Whitman's 5 year plan. You would expect to see some green shoots somewhere. Instead we still hear about Execution challenges (we f***d up delivery) competitive pricing (we are way too expensive) and misaligned go to market model (we are selling the wrong stuff to the wrong people).

I suspect that even the redundancies are misplaced (letting go of troops on the ground instead of addressing the massive top heavy management structure).

Re: @hplasm

One could equally say - look for the contra evidence. It's there, just not screaming "We are all going to die if you don't do what I tell you".

This overwhelming evidence bollox has to stop. Like the man said - present it.

Re: What's his angle?

Let me get that for you.....

(a) Greenhouses trap heat and are a very poor model for the atmosphere

(b) CO2 is an insignificant greenhouse gas

(c) Human activity emits insignificant quantities of CO2

Microsoft - please stop telling me it's Windows 7 'reimagined' - unless it's Mickey Mouse.

Mr Nobody 1

Not a chance

Succinctly put Andrew.

The speed and performance improvements could have been packaged as a Windows 7 SE with the Metro interface reserved for tablets and phones. Instead we see yet another example of Microsoft steadfastly refusing to learn from their own past experiences and spectacularly failing to understand their key customer base.

We cannot afford the training and productivity overheads of this pointless upgrade and so we will be sticking with Windows 7.

Cloud altitude changing with climate: NZ study

Mr Nobody 1

Let me help you with that....

A University of Auckland analysis of ten years’ worth of NASA satellite data suggests that cloud formation, with fewer clouds forming at the highest altitudes is changing atmospheric temperatures. See what I did there ?

Oh and please stop telling me how lovely your models are. They cannot predict past climate based on known historical data. ergo useless.
