In surprising news today HP's CEO and Chairman Carly Fiorina steps down effective immediately.
Mrs. Fiorina is quoted in HP's Press-release:
"While I regret the board and I have differences about how to execute HP's strategy, I respect their decision."
This is of course saying nothing about the reasons. Maybe it was the HP iPod project ? Apparently HP stopped ordering iPods from Apple (see AppleInsider). Just kidding, not even the iPod makes a difference in the revenue numbers of HP. Guess we will read the real reasons in a Autobiography of Mrs. Fiorina.
HP plans to report its first quarter financial results on Feb. 16, 2005, after market close.
