Meg Whitman says, "HP's traditional highly profitable markets face significant disruption. Wintel devices are being challenged by ARM-based devices," she said. "The disruptive forces are very tough and very real, and they are accelerating. We are seeing profound changes in the competitive landscape. Our competitors are expanding across the IT stack. Current partners like Intel and Microsoft are turning from partners to outright competitors."

I say good!  Change is good!  Disruptive forces can be the best forces to hit the market.  HP is one of the stalwart status quo players in the game.  Much in the same way Kia and Hyundai follow the Japanese in car design, HP has a reputation for following trends.  Their corporate structure is a monstrosity and moves like a blind sloth with the discerning tastes of an amoeba.

Dell crushed them in the 90's.  I am looking forward to the next disruptive change in the landscape taking down the behemoth for good.

Hp is to the computer industry what Jabba the Hut was to Star Wars.
