A little part of me dies every single time I see that stupid "HP invent" logo. It is a long time since HP has invented anything of any consequence. They should rebrand themselves as "HP Acquires". This is just another of the consequences of a completely disjointed approach to the marketplace, with product lines that torpedo each other with alacrity, and a lack of direction from the top managers who since Fiorina have been padding results by squeezing the supply chain and little else. As for Itanium... just port HP-UX to X64 and move on. I am reminded of IBM hanging on to OS/2 when everyone knew it was dead.
