Thread regarding HP (Hewlett-Packard) layoffs

What's next? Floppy discs and cassette tapes? That's what I would call innovation...

Competitors (specially start ups) will kick our butt on gaming & "blended" reality. I can easily see HP making acquisitions there very soon - bidding against heavyweights. In terms of 3D printing, I think we'll kick @ss in a big way (at least in the category we'll play). We have too many product lines on mature markets (high volume - low margins). Maintaining and "refreshing" those take an incredible amount of time and energy... I think it's inevitable that in less than 3 years, HP will split again into two companies... One for PCs, and one for printers. The printing division should be the one keeping the HP name.

3D printing isn't going to take off the way HP thinks it will, and as much as "techies" would love it to.

This is why we should enter the floppy disks market:

...and this is why I should fully dive into cassette tapes:

We will make so much money!! Why stop there! Let's bring the whole 60's, 70s' and 80's back! YEAH, BABY! YEAH! Hmmm... Maybe we should make an oscillator, and try to sell it to Disney... Lol!
