    It would be nice if individuals like you used your brain for more than trying to promote hate and stupidity.
    HP and their board of over-paid CEO's and managers did not forsee the future in technology. Their lack of vision to keep pace with the technology dealing with phones and Ipods and such have made their company hurt in the economic world. So, it was their lack of skill that cost the company money and jobs.
    Oh, yes I forgot it was those damn workers, you know the ones that are paid shit for their work , the ones in 3rd world countries or China.
    Sorry, spew you shit.

    HP is an American company, so most of these lost jobs are probably in America. Also, if most of these jobs weren't in America, HP would have been sure to report that along with the job cuts.

    A lot of this damage was done by the female CEO they had, who wanted HP to push growth in a flattening PC market.

    PC sales are way down, and HP doesn't have smart phones or good tablet alternatives. That's what you get when you hire clueless Republican celebrities to run your company.

    We have no strategic interest in Best Buy, so I doubt it.

    BTW, HP is still turning a profit. They just have a so-so product line. They're not as innovative as they once were. Funny that HP was the first touch screen PC, back in the '80s, but with bad management lost their creative edge.

    No one cared when GM couldn't get it done because auto sales were down.

    HP was best back when they made quality electronics test equipment.
