Hewlett-Packard: Why Carly's Big Bet Is Failing - FORTUNE

Just a shout out to everyone who had to listen to me denounce the HP-Compaq merger as value destructive 3 yrs. ago. More proof that 2nd tier companies can't merge into top tier companies. (Or in the case of HP & Compaq, good companies with secondary positions in certain markets.)

Uncommon Man's Creed

"I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon -- if I can. I seek opportunity -- not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I wish to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole, I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence, nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master, nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid, to think and act for myself, to enjoy the benefit of my creations, and to face the world boldly and say, "this I have done." All this is what it means to be an American." -- Anonymous
