They only thing Apple and HP have in common at this point is that they both started in garages in the valley.

... both had Woz as an employee!

(2) Palm failed because of its inability to create a decent music, videos, books and apps market place.

Remember how Palm pathetically tried to hack its way into iTunes sync ?!
HP is not capable neither to do that itself... HP stopped inventing a long time ago...

Plus Palm only had a decent mobile OS because it hired Apple staff and ripped off what they could get away with. OK, I know MS did succeed in making a bundle ripping off Apple but I don't think it has ever worked since then.

True, they both had Woz. I had actually forgotten. My bad.

But I still think you knew what I meant. Or perhaps you didn't?

HP has been sleeping for years. Cheap plastic computers NO DIFFERENT from Dell's or any other cheap plastic Windows losers.

Maybe somebody woke up.
The important thing is TO OPEN RETAIL STORES EXACTLY LIKE APPLE'S because they are a company with faceless suits WITH ZERO IDEAS.

Little changes to ink jet cartridges is NOT innovation.

HP pad? snoooooooooooooooze.

I have seen some demos of WebOS and it looks very nice. But can HP match Apple's hardware design???

HP originally had an engineering culture like Apple, but I heard Carly Fiorina kind of ruined that. In which case they're SOL, because it takes a certain kind of culture to produce a certain kind of result. But I don't live in California so I could be wrong.
