HP on Monday announced plans to separate its major business lines into two separate companies. One, HP Inc., will offer PCs and printers; the other, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, will focus on IT infrastructure, software and services. HP CEO Meg Whitman will be the president and CEO of HP Enterprise, which will be chaired by Patricia Russo. Don Weisler, EVP of HP's printing & personal systems division, will be the president and CEO of HP Inc., and Whitman will be the non-executive chairman of its board.

This leaves me perplexed more then the Dell privatization. Other then a excuse to jettison employee's to save money. I don't see any advantage product wise by splitting the two. I agree with the analysts who say HP is grasping at straws and have been for some time. Yes, they do need to shrink as in product line in PC's and printers and also focus on Enterprise. But why this could not be done as one unit is a big question.

How will the pandemic influence your holiday shopping habits this year?
I will shop online exclusively, for my own safety and to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.
I will do some shopping online, and some in-person because I want to support merchants in my area.
I will shop online definitely, and I will consider local retailers -- but only if they provide curbside service.
I will only shop in-person because the risks associated with e-commerce outweigh my chance of catching COVID-19.
I will not do any holiday shopping this year due to circumstances related to the pandemic.
