HP and Autonomy Battle Only Warming UP

April 10, 2014

Hewlett-Packard’s (www.hp.com ) long reign as the quiet powerhouse on the digital landscape may be over. According to a recent Inquirer article, “Autonomy’s Mike Lynch Slams HP for Misleading Shareholders” http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2335139/autonomys-mike-lynch-slams-hp-for-misleading-shareholders brings them into the spotlight and we are not very impressed with what we see.

According to the article, Lynch told HP shareholders before a meeting recently:

“As you are aware, Hewlett Packard remains locked in dispute with a group of its own shareholders and with the former management team of Autonomy over its purchase of Autonomy…”

He continued:

“The evidence shows that HP is not just smearing us, but also misleading you, its shareholders.”

While this is surprising, it is by no means a total shocker. The tide has been swaying against HP lately, especially since their purchase of Autonomy. Last month, in fact, The Telegraph pretty much previewed this clash, saying: “Lynch, who was sacked by HP in May 2012, now faces a bitter battle to rescue his reputation. (HP CEO Meg) Whitman…is meanwhile under legal attack from her shareholders for allegedly failing in her duty to protect their money.” This is a recipe for an ongoing, disastrous clash. Frankly, we’re on Lynch’s side, seeing as how HP devalued Autonomy by over $8 billion since taking the controls. We suspect we will see more of this to come.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours take a
    large amount of work? I’m brand new to operating a blog however I do write
    in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for
    brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
