New York Times: Meg Whitman’s Toughest Campaign: Retooling H.P.
I don’t think I’ve ever read a more insulting piece about a company’s CEO in my entire tech life. Insulting to users.
Some choice quotes before I go off like a rocket:
She believes that mobile devices, cloud computing and Big Data will re-energize H.P.
From Ms. Whitman’s high vantage, the trends of mobile, cloud and Big Data resolve into a single phenomenon: the creation and exploitation of Information Everywhere. H.P. makes consumer devices, in addition to servers for the cloud, sensor networks, and analysis software. Instead of standing at the confluence of the phenomenon, though, H.P. is on the sidelines, with most of the parts but none of the integration to make it a leader.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me
What the hell? What the bloody hell?
If HP is sitting on the “sidelines,” it’s Whitman’s own damn fault!
