HP to split into two companies

The trend in recent years is for companies to become larger and acquire as many other divisions as possible but as of late that trend seems to be going the other way. Much like Ebay and Paypal announced their split a couple weeks ago, HP has announced that they will be dividing into two companies, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and HP Inc. One company will be dealing with the server and enterprise products while the other side will be worrying about the personal computing side. From the press release it seems like HP will be continuing business as usual and investors and customers shouldn't see too much of a change but only time will tell if this is the move that is needed to keep HP relevant. You can read the entire press release over here.

HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced plans to separate into two new publicly traded Fortune 50 companies: one comprising HP’s market-leading enterprise technology infrastructure, software and services businesses, which will do business as Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, and one that will comprise HP’s market-leading personal systems and printing businesses, which will do business as HP Inc. and retain the current logo. Immediately following the transaction, which is expected to be completed by the end of fiscal 2015, HP shareholders will own shares of both Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and HP Inc. The transaction is intended to be tax-free to HP’s shareholders for federal income tax purposes. 

Today’s announcement comes as HP approaches the fourth year of its five-year turnaround plan. Over this time, the company has executed successfully against its turnaround objectives, keeping customers and partners at the forefront. HP has reignited its innovation pipeline, strengthened its go-to-market capabilities, rebuilt its balance sheet, and inspired its workforce and management teams. The company is now positioned to accelerate performance, drive sustained growth and demonstrate clear industry leadership in key areas.

ROCCAT @ CES 2014

We met up with ROCCAT to take a look at some of their new offerings for this upcoming year here at CES 2014. 


ROCCAT has a new line of headsets, the Kave, which has a couple different versions (an analog version and a digital 5.1 surround version). We didn't get much of a chance to demo these too in-depth but given ROCCAT's track record we are looking forward to getting them onto the BCCHardware test bench for some more testing.

ROCCAT was also showing off their lineup of keyboards which is highlighted by the Ryos mechanical keyboards. The Ryos keyboards aren't new but they have introduced a new smaller version of the Ryos dubbed the Ryos TKL which is the same keyboard minus the number pad to make it fit into tighter desk configurations where a full keyboard might not work.

iPhone 6 Bendable Display NOT a Feature

Apple has been telling a few fibs lately, but when they say that their new iPhones are NOT supposed to bend, I'd believe them. The phone material isn't rigid enough to survive a week in your jeans pocket. That's ok. Apparently iPhone 6 users don't wear jeans - or they are wearing them wrong. Good luck with your broken/bent phones.

Not sure if you want to hide your shiny new iPhone's newfangled design in a bulky case? Maybe you should -- apparently, it's quite pliable. iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users on Twitter seem to be finding small, but noticeable bends just south of the handsets' volume controls. Front-pocket storage is all it takes to give the handset a gentle slope...
