Stop us if you've heard this one before: HP Inc rejects Xerox's $36.5bn buyout plan as takeover saga drags on
In the E in HPE stands for Eroding revenues... Intel chip shortage, hardware supplies, coronavirus punish IT titan
HP Ink: No way, Xerox. We're not accepting your takeover. Well, we'd never say never. Maybe even maybe? Hello, you still there? Please?
Agreed and seconded. There's no IT angle to this article. And... it's biased. Surely as a responsible news site you need to be impartial - or you need to publish it under 'Comment' rather than 'Policy' and make it clear it represents the view of the writer?
PS. I happen to fully agree with your bias from a personal point of view. I'd also have been equally annoyed if the slant had been Pro-Brexit. I expect you to be neutral as a News website and let the commentators commence the flame wars which I'm sure we'll all do.
Re: Slowing Down
Infosight is absolutely the reason HPE bought Nimble, and the fact it is a pretty decent platform in it's own right is more in the way of a bonus. HPE can't roll Infosight out to their other platforms quick enough, and are pretty open about Infosight being the main reason for the acquisition.
Pure have the Evergreen concept which was absolutely compelling back in the day when no-one else was offering it, but now pretty much everyone else is offering the same it has become less of a factor. Not sure who could actually acquire Pure now and have a sensible reason for doing so (and who could afford it). Fujitsu-Siemens maybe....? HPE - no, DellEMC - no, IBM - no, Cisco - no... the list grows thin.
Europe's home PC buyers reach for their collective smartphone, sigh: We don't need a new desktop. This is a computer, right?
Me and the Mrs recently had cause to go along to a private hospital. In the reception there was an unattended booth (open door), in which there was a desk, a chair, miscellaneous boxes... all manner of general clutter. And on the desk was a HP Vectra attached to a huge CRT, on which impenetrable data was scrolling. I estimate the Vectra to be at least 20 years old. Leaving aside the issue of security, I was genuinely fascinated to try and understand what the hell it was doing, but we got called for our appointment so didn't have a chance to penetrate their security properly; we went there several times and the booth was always open to anyone to just wander in.
Ransomware drops the Lillehammer on Norsk Hydro: Aluminium giant forced into manual mode after systems scrambled
I always said 'Mom', and indeed to still do to my...er, Mom; and yes, I was brought up in the West Midlands. I was always a little bit confused as to why all these weirdoes down in the South East said Mum, rather than the obviously far superior nomenclature Mom. And now I find out that it's actually a 'thing', and related to being originally from Brum. Why so?
Why not go the whole hog....
....and remake some of those oh-so dated films that could really benefit from extensive CGI and green-screening. And more appropriate actors/actresses too.
