Hurd Joins The Herd

I was considering writing a blog post about the downfall of Hewlett Packard’s CEO Mark Hurd, but I decided to back off. I figured that all the credentialed and highly respected tech columnists and bloggers have covered this horror story from all angles.

So, instead of my usual rag, rag, rag…… whine, whine, whine….. toll-u-so, toll-u-so, toll-u-sow verbage, I’ve written an empty husk of a blog post. The accompanying picture sux too….

Nevertheless, I’ll be back on my high horse and raging against the machine soon.

    what really sux is the guy gets $28 million to go away. That’s what I call failing forward. where do you sign up?

    step one: run a company.
    step two: sign a rock star contract that puts frozen bananas in your dressing room every tuesday.
    step three: get caught in a compomising position
    step four: PAYDAY!!!
    (step five: spend time in the federal retreat system then write a tell all book and blame martha stuart.)

    Hurd’s predecessor, Carly Fiorina got more than $50M to take a hike. Unlike Hurd, she screwed the company up. To top it off, Carly may become one of the senators from California in the near future. D’oh!

    Ya gotta hit them where it hurtz most – their pocketbook. Take away all their money and then see what happens.
