This sad story of a great idea rejected by Gates and Ballmer might be idea for HP, a folding two-panel book that features content creation not just content consumption.  I love the idea of a thin folded two screen book with touch and pen methods, like the rejected Courier Tab from the makers of X-box.

Thanks for the post Barbara. If hey HP is decided to come up with a innovative PC product they will be in a good position in the market. If we look at the HP in PC era they had a good remark of making quality PCs.

Indeed. Credibility on a corporate level takes a long time to earn, and a great deal of effort to maintain. However, if HP stays true to its own corporate theme "invent,' we can expect to see some interesting developments in the months and years ahead.

May be in two to three years time, vibration and solar will charge and power mobile devices. It is not very far. Does Apple has few patents for this?

In addition how about leveraging other non conventional energy sources- vibrational energy for instance. But I feel it all boils down to the energy storage tchnology which hasn't really come as long a way as the electronics has, still appears archaic and leads to bigger form factors and weight.

@Bolaji--agreed. Our readers make a good point about the flip-flopping coming at a price. Similar to NetFlix, HP has made a number of announcements only to backslide on them. And true, HP is right back where it began. But if it can resist the impulse to release another "me-too" product, it might have a chance down the line. It may be too little too late.

@Barbara, You are too much of an optimist. First, HP first must reinvent itself and then it can go ahead and save its varied market segments. Announcing a strategy to stay in the PC business does not represent a sea change for HP -- it was and still is in the PC business, remember. The "review"exercise of the last few months has been a waste of time and resources. The company returned to the starting point and now must confront the problems it was dodging under Apotheker. Begin again.

By its flip-flops in the business strategy , HP has lost its credibility as a blue chip company such as IBM or Apple , the companies which has always shown prudence in and longsightedness in their business strategies. IBM recognised the power of software much earlier than HP did , and hived off its PC and Laptop business. It is now the topmost leader in Software , worldwide.

@Tvotapka, if one can develop such a technology then one will solve all the problems related to the power shortage.
