Default Re: HP to exit PC business and quit WebOS

HP is not a good "consumer product" company.

Look at how they rape everyone for ink on inkjets.
Their consumer PC's are mostly garbage (But so is almost any "Brand PC").
Their Tablet and Phone has flopped.

It makes sense to pull out of the consumer market and stick with the enterprise, just like IBM did. That's their strong suit. Of course, they will still be making printers for consumers... that profit margin is way too lucrative to give up.

As for the person posting all the Steve Jobs / Apple hate... Apple simply makes outstanding consumer products... whether anyone wants to admit it or not. Take OSX for example... it's Basically BSD Unix under the hood. Go Download BSD Unix and install it with any *nix Desktop you choose, and compare it to the "consumer ease of use" of OSX. There's a HUGE difference! THAT is what makes Apple popular. They aren't making stuff for techno-nerds like us... they're making stuff for the "average techno-retarded consumer"... which outnumbers technically proficient folks BY FAR. And that is why they are successful. You remember when your parents had trouble programming the VCR when you were a kid and you had to do it for them? That's who Apple targets.

I love HP products. We've converted my library to all HP. This is terrible news...

As for cloud computing, I hate it.

I DONT WANT MY COMPUTING EXPERIENCE TO BE TIED TO MY CABLE MODEM.................

So long as it's not decades upon decades away, HP may have done the right thing.
office maybe, but i do hope that consumers won't be that stupid.
