Mr Hurd is well thought of in the computer industry
Hewlett-Packard has appointed Mark Hurd as its new chief executive, the computer giant has confirmed.
Mr Hurd, currently head of smaller US computer services group NCR, will replace Carly Fiorina, who was ousted from HP in February.

HP's shares closed up 8.1% in Tuesday trading in New York, following initial speculation of Mr Hurd's appointment.

Mr Hurd, 48, is credited with turning around the fortunes of NCR since he took over the top job in March 2003.

Well, I gather that HP hasn't been doing especially well lately...
Maybe now an improvement will be seen!
Big sales - little profits
Most of their money comes from printers

Really? Thats cool I guess...
And in business, It's hard to strike a good balance between low prices = many sales, and high prices = few sales to give the optimum profit... ;)
