I know I’ve been hard on Ballmer and MS in the past, but if there is a textbook example of a tech corporation that has lost its way it is HP. It is just sad.

Im sorry, MPC. This is usually my first stop on the internet just because I like the quality of the articles on this site, but this has to be the most nothing article I have read in awhile.

Intel produces X86 processors, SSDs and a few other basic computer parts. Microsoft's surface doesn't have any custom built circuitry of the sort. I still fail to understand how they are "competing".

HP is in the OS business (WebOS...yes they failed but they tried).
Microsoft is in the hardware business.
Intel makes the NUC though it has gotten out of the motherboard business if I'm not mistaken.

HP without Intel and Microsoft though, HP would still be just printers in the PC world. They would also still be wondering how killing off all the WebOS products left them failing in the OS business.

Hey AFDozerman, sorry if the article wasn't clear, but HP Chief Executive Meg Whitman is saying that Microsft and Intel are both HP's competitors.

I just added a few "its" to hopefully clear up the confusion. Thanks for the comment!

Ah I see. I thought she meant that Microsoft and Intel were competing with one another.

Anyway it is interesting to see how HP is adapting to the changing circumstances. It looks like they want to become a devices company too.
