Hard to believe a company with the resources of HP could let themselves get hosed for $5 billion like that. I wonder what that works out to per board member?

This is simply not the time in their history when they can afford to do such a thing. It will simply speed them down that slippery slope to destruction. Bill Hewlett and David Packard must be spinning in their graves all these years since the Carly Fiorina fiasco.

BTW, nice face-lift, Carly!
