I used to work for Lexmark, the printer company, so the industry has always been interesting to me. I have also been a critic of Carly Fiorina, and of the HP-Compaq merger. She has proven me wrong before, and now it looks like HP is doing a good job defending it's printer business, which I have criticized in the past (vestiges from my Lexmark days I guess). I can tell you that HP is the target Lexmark focuses on, and Lexmark is a pretty good company. Dell is now in the field as well, and we all know they have incredible business savvy. This will be a good battle to watch over the years, especially when the price of printers comes so far down and the quality goes so far up that they start to become commodities. For now though, I would not bet against Fiorina and HP.
