Geek Smack! Topic of the Week: The State of HP, Yahoo! Time for a Facelift!

Apotheker is out. Meg Whitman is in. Former eBay CEO is president and CEO in a move that might change people’s minds about HP. So is the consumer division up for sale? Are we going to see the TouchPad come back? What did Apotheker do right?

In the Meantime, Carol Bartz is out. Jerry Yang says the site is not for sale, but then says it is. No new CEO is being saught right now.  Did the board do a good job? Should someone buy Yahoo? Will their business side take a major hit? Maybe the company should rebrand?
