With expensive wine, this figure is rather easy to reach. European politicians know everything about that.
HP is in deep trouble if only it realised it. The price of (specifically HP's) printer ink has become the butt of jokes on mainstream TV shows even in Europe, they don't seem to be brand leaders in any field, class actions are brewing on alleged unremedied known faults on laptops.
Now we learn why. Ill behaved, greedy, management -- and stupid enough to get caught treating their employees as badly as they do their customers.
So this is what it takes to be a CEO: be an avaricious, brutish who does nothing in life but take, take, take. Probably gets a golden parachute on top of it. Must be nice to be immune to the effects of lazy old Karma.

Sounds about right yea, that is about right to describe most CEOs.
And now watch him become the CEO of the next major corporation. Those just move around from one money fountain to the next. No matter how bad their previous stint was, there's always another open seat on the board waiting. That is what truly disgusts me.
I feel bad that so many good people had to work underneath this guy, this huy even makes jobs look like a good alternative. Its too bad HP's image is ruined already with poor quality and outrages ink prices (cost a lot to research new ways to make an ink cartridge for every printer you know)Ill never buy anything HP. My work uses all HP printers in all of our locations but i have no choice in that.
