"HP is going through a disaster, with what confidence will people buy the HP Pavilion Elite H8 1050 that came out on top in yesterdays Back To School round up? Anyhow, All this because of the Ipad?'
He doesn't have a large enough investment of his ~own money~ in HP to keep him moving conservatively.
Why should he care if ~other people~ lose money? He can just be a "Cowboy" and try new and exciting ideas! Wheee!!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
@realneil I agree completely with that statement. Also what does he care if he gets let go I am sure he will end up with a huge severance package.
@Optimus Do you think this really is all because of the iPad... I certainly don't think so. The tablet craze that we are in is more likely to end in my opinion than the use and manufacturing of PCs
omegadraco:Also what does he care if he gets let go I am sure he will end up with a huge severance package.
Yeah, why the hell they always agree to pay these Mooks such outrageous sums of money is beyond me. Why they get such a ~crap-load~ of money if they're fired is weird too.
I just don't see the 'value' that these companies place on their CEO's as being justified. They really would work for less money if there weren't so many idiot companies paying such outrageous sums to their top hands. Apple's new CEO getting 383 million dollars in stock,.......just to start,....~a bonus!~,....is incomprehensible to me.
BTW: If they do can his ass, he's good for 9.4 Million total for his 10 months of "work" at HP. Not bad chump change. But who's the chumps?
Finally. I mean that guy is making consistantly bad decisions; he failed to see the potential in WebOS, he failed to see that the PC business is still a profitable and essential part of HP and he even failed to realize that HP is mostly recognized as a PC brand rather than an enterprise brand. (very few people know HP makes enterprise products.)
However, I did note the word "consider" and if Apotheker can talk his way onto staying than HP is certainly doomed.
Side note: I don't care much for HP PC's due to stuff I've heard about quality and customer service but if people think it's good, who's to prevent me from jumping on.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Wow someone finally woke up at HP amazing. I also agree with everything you guys are saying, why bring someone in who is unproven specifically in/with your company, not to mention Mr. Apotheker already failed at one of your competitors, and pay them millions of dollars with no proof. Then as a specific clause to you bringing him in you have to pay him millions extra if you decide he sucks and you wanna fire him "REALLY", come on that is quackery if I ever heard it. The thing is HP is vital to the market because of there size. So I really hope someone did wake up and bought MR. Apotheker a return ticket to wherever he is from.
rapid1:The thing is HP is vital to the market because of there size
Yes. number one in the world. The reasoning behind throwing away the ~number one in the world PC manufacturing business~ is beyond any normal thought process. Well, it goes beyond my thought processes, and all I ever did was build Spaceships, see them off into Space, and have them return to Earth with the passengers intact.
So what do I know.
Another thing,......I can't believe that it took plummeting stock prices to finally wake the board of HP up to the fact that they were being grossly mismanaged. Talk about being asleep at the wheel,.......
