    Default HP chairman caught using MacBook Air at home

    HP chairman found not dogfooding own PCs

    HP executive chairman Ray Lane provided unintentional irony for his company on Monday after a profile showed that he doesn't use his company's own products. The Reuters look showed that, at home, the board member uses a MacBook Air, not a Folio 13, ProBook, or other HP-made system. No mention was made of the apparent self-contradiction in the talk, which instead focused on the HP board's decision to fire Leo Apotheker as CEO in favor of Meg Whitman.Lane did say he was focused on software and services, where Whitman was focused on hardware. He helped lead to the reversal of Apotheker's decision to phase out the PC group.

    The executive reached HP's board just over a year ago, on November 1, and he expects to shift more of his time away from HP towards venture capitalism at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and his role as chairman in hybrid car maker Fisker Automotive. As such, he's not as tied to the company as Whitman, other executives, and the board, some of whom have been with HP for years.

    His choice of a Mac, while possibly non-exclusive, is nonetheless symbolic as it shows one of the key directors behind the company using a key competitor's hardware. HP is still successful in PCs, but a lack of "dogfooding," or using the products of one's own company, isn't likely to help shake the company's reputation for focusing on budget PCs over premium hardware.

    I see nothing wrong with this, the Air is a fine system for portability and ease of moving.

    I didn't, unless I signed an agreement stating that I can't buy anyone else buy my own company's product, this bullshit scandal makes zero sense. Stupid fanboys, ugh.

    @Wintereise incident like this can make a nice big dent in corporate image. Besides, there is a good probability that hp stock $ might take a hit as well.

    n btw where did u get this fanboy crap... it doesn't even fit in here. duh!

    These things shouldn't really affect corporate image, I mean what does this really mean? Nothing! That guy is a person as well so he can buy whatever he wants. And the MBA released way before the Folio, how do they know it wasn't bought back then? At that time, ultraportable laptop = MBA. I bet thats being mentioned anywhere. Hudai jor kore 'software side' r 'hardware side' differ korano hocche.

    well to some extent u r right u gotta watch what others r doing hence, there is this thing called R&D who look over competitors products.

    But if the chairman admits in the 1st place that their competitor is better then guess what U loose even before u step into the playground.

And the MBA released way before the Folio, how do they know it wasn't bought back then? At that time, ultraportable laptop = MBA. I bet thats being mentioned anywhere. Hudai jor kore 'software side' r 'hardware side' differ korano hocche.

    He summed it up nicely enough for me. This'll only matter to the stuck up fanboys and haters, nobody else.

    These mean a LOT. These kinda incidents sends a clear msg to CONSUMERS that HP products are not good enough which WILL take a toll on stocks.

    YES I UNDERSTAND THE TEXTBOOK MEANING OF THIS

    But in reality it shouldn't really matter unless that guy himself said that MBA>HP products. Consumer tastes are only affected when these things are blown way out of proportion.

    @minitt : I found this in that article:

    "The current CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, famously told a journalist for the newspaper USA Today, "There's no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance."

    Talk about slap across the face lol

    No. It should matter!

    You are the CEO of BMW and you ride a Ferrari. This means you are saying to people that Ferrari > BMW.

    When you use your competitor's product as a consumer instead of eating your own dog food, you prove your product sucks.
