Concidentally, I got a call at my office from an HP telemarketer asking similar questions, but with a much more positive twist.
My answers were similar to those in the following link. HP has become formless, leaderless, and part of the background of technology.
It IS sad because their technology is so great.
After all, where would we be without ink-jet or laser printing. The answer, of course, is that we would be paperless. And Apple had the forethought to create the retina display.
