  1. I think HP are having a crisis of confidence at the moment. They seem a step behind and don’t seem to know where they are heading – they are irrelevant in this space.

  2. That’s a great point Sonya. They really didn’t know how to embrace this fully and I think we all saw what the result was. When there are dominant players in a market you probably shouldn’t do something that is half-hearted. Consumers will see right through that and they did in this case.
