Buzz Out Loud 1542: The spin on the HP spin-off ...
The cast of Buzz Out Loud has a message for HP that we hope they'll hear: guys. Seriously. Please stop talking. Don't tell the press you may or may not spin off your PC unit if you can figure out what that would mean for the company, and don't let the EVP of the PC business say HP might get back into tablets.
You just couldn't stand it Steve could you. For the past four days everyone's been talking about HP's tablet. The iPad's not been feeling any love from the press. All you've seen is "TouchPad this" and "webOS that". You just couldn't bare the lack of media attention could you.
"what can I do to get Apple back in the headlines", you've been thinking all day and all sleepless night.
"I know, I'll chuffing resign!", you decided.
God you're so selfish. Couldn't you give HP just one week of celebrity!?
Don't think Leo is going to be out-done by your little stunt Mr Jobs. I'm pretty sure he's crafting a resignation letter of his own at this very moment!
It's kind of like trying to apply conventional logic to understand quantum mechanics. Or like that first time in high school when you're told about the square root of -1 being 'i' and you should "... just accept for now that it is, even though it makes no sense".
Big companies cannot be described by logic. You just need to hold on tight and have a strong stomach. Enjoy the ride!
