Leo Apotheker is gone, Meg Whitman takes his place as HP CEO


I'm not going to say that I don't understand the tech industry right now, because that's far from the truth. But I'm also not going to say that what's happening right now makes complete sense. Today, Léo Apotheker was outed as HP's CEO, and Meg Whitman, former CEO of eBay, is in. 

Now, what does this have to do with you, the average Pocketables reader? Remember before webOS was killed off, all of us were waiting for the Opal/Touchpad Go? Well, Leo Apotheker was the main reason webOS hardware isn't continuing (as of right now,) so the thought of that hardware returning is definitely something we should keep in the back of our minds. 

Because of this news, we may not have to be mourning for much longer. But it's a big maybe; hopefully, Whitman will make us proud.
