I Hurd Dat

One of thing that remains confusing in this whole Mark Hurd saga (the now semi-disgraced ex-chief of HP) is did he or didn't he?

He was accused of sexual harassment, which apparently didn't stick, but was fired for steering money towards a 50-year-old honey who used to appear in sexy movies. But both he and the gal claim nothing happened. Is Hurd lying or is he the quintessential high nerd who will do anything for the gal who's just out of reach? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com. With so many high-priced lawyers, we may never discover the truth.

This is apparently how HP likes to fire its top executives. Expose them in an embarassing situation and then force them to resign. It probably prevents a messy and prolonged power struggle when the board decides a transition is necessary.

Hate to say it, but in looking at your website's home page and your mailbag, you have had very little Microsoft information to offer for a while and the information you do have is about security patches and products that weren't so hot. Maybe you need to remind Microsoft that they should go out and develop something new/innovative and not try to make a mint on each copy.

Is this People magazine or Redmond Magazine?
