Carly and HP



#2

I said I wasn't going to post here anymore due to a disagreement with a couple of board members, but nontheless, I though some folks here might be interested in this article about HP and Carly.

It hardly seems a ringing endorsement: a spurious comparison to IBM and a reference to job cuts she didn't carry out but might have done. Profits might have been 20%. She might have baked the shareholders an apple pie each for all we know.

The whole article smacks of someone straining to come up with a few hundred words to a deadline.

The stinker is in the last paragraph where he critises her for drawing too much attention to herself. Not true. It is lame journalists like this one who draw attention to her because they are too lazy to write something original, so fall back on the fact that she is a woman in a man's world.
