Death By Cash Cow

HP's current plight reminds me of my 1980 years in IBM,,, Big Iron,, 3270 Displays all hooked to the MainFrame. HP never ending flow of Inkjet Printers, all sucking up all the ink they could produce. Ahh the wonderful life of the 'Cash Cow' nirvana.

IBM was lucky enough to have a great Board at that time, and they canned the CEO and brought in Atilla the Hun.

Ruthlessly he cut and cut and divided and reoriented and went back and cut and cut and reoriented again,,,, finally out of the ashes,,,,, came the new true spirit and essence of the new company. It's an ongoing story,,, Gerstner did his job and Palmisano has done his and Ginni Rometty will do hers, Evolve as the world evolves.

Apple's Press Agent

Saving The Base OR A Win??

Seems to me that this is merely a follow on upgrade to TWO long established Cray installations. Is there a hidden message in the article????
