Copy that? We'll never join you on the Xerox side if you don't answer simple questions – HP

Maybe Xerox are trying to provoke HP into making a counter-bid against them. Given that they're the smaller of the two it would make more sense and presumably result in less debt. But I'd have thought that if combining the two was really a good idea a straight merger make most sense. No additional debt, just a question of which CEO gets fired the big pay-off as there'll then only be one.
