@Nemos, cloud computing a simple concept of renting the resources. For example your company needs a server for a short period of time; you don’t have to invest for buying server. Instead of that you can approach the cloud service providers like Amazon, VM Ware etc, they will provide a connectivity between your company and their server, so that you can be used it according to your requirements. For this service they will charge you on pay as you go basis (usage). Like that you can use many types of resources for data backup, storage, web services etc.

Hewlett-Packard’s disappointing forecasts reflect rivalry from tablets such as Apple  iPad and lower margins in the computer-services division. Needs to be seen if HP will emulate its PC market success in the tablet world when it launches the Touchpad over the summer.

Thanks for the kind words, DennisQ. Regarding Palm, it will be interesting to see if HP does indeed release PCs running WebOS. It will be even more interesting to see what the level of uptake is. Given the so-called "consumerization of IT," where every platform under the sun is giving Windows a run for its money, it's not inconceivable that these could make a dent, though I have to admit I remain a bit doubtful.

HP's Success

I think this is a good summary, Alexander. As you say, I think that HP's problems are simple to identify, yet difficult to fix.

Still, despite the issues, I think HP is in pretty good shape. Yes, the whole Mark Hurd situation was... less than ideal... but given the circumstances I think they have dealt with all that rather well.

While in hindsight things like paying $25 billion for Compaq seems rather silly, I do think it's clear that HP has adapted better to the industry's new era better than most of their former competitors, many of whom no longer exist or have long since been swallowed up in acquisitions.

And speaking of acquisitions and the soon-to-be-here-post-PC future you mention, the acquisition of Palm does seem to be a good strategic fit, yes? And Palm obviously cost of a small fraction of what they dished out for Compaq years ago. Perhaps a better value as well?
