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.
