The big news this summer was the HP Board's summary dismissal of CEO
Mark Hurd over what seemed a minor issue involving an inappropriate
relationship with a female contractor, a former soft-core porn
actress. Hurd received a golden handshake and was dismissed. His many
supporters pointed out that Hurd was a numbers guy (not a people
person) and that HP had done well in his tenure. Hurd then went on to
accept a job at Oracle. That move led to a lawsuit by HP. On it

Here (http://bit.ly/9DcyiD) is a blog posting regarding HP's earnings
claims during and just after the Hurd era, showing that HP did not do
