HP announced today that Meg Whitman would be taking over as CEO, replacing outgoing CEO Leo Apotheker after less than a year on the job. According to the New York Times, Whitman is not expected to reverse course on several of her predecessor's most contentious decisions, including the unceremonious dumping of WebOS hardware last month and its willingness to sell or spin off its PC business.

Whitman, who served as CEO of eBay from 1998 to 2008, also ran for governor of California in the state's last election.

    ...That they spin off the PC division of HP with new somewhat competent leadership (Which relative to the current leadership could consist of a magic 8 ball, an etch a sketch, and a tickle me Elmo), and after they run the rest of HP into the ground the spin off will acquire HP and turn it back around into the decent company it once was.
