Leo Apotheker replaced by Meg Whitman at HP but what’s with that Manta Ray?

So HP announce the departure of Leo Apotheker and the appointment of Meg Whitman. Interesting to see how that goes. Ray Lane has moved from non-Executive Chairman to executive Chairman. I saw this, then I thought of the guest blog post Neil Davidson wrote earlier this week about business plans where he poses the question,

“What is your mantra?”

Make it as simple to understand  as Blinkpipe’s: “Video calling as  natural as a handshake, as  reliable as the telephone and as  easy to install as a toaster”.

What is your mantra?

This is HP’s mantra, from the bottom of the press release announcing the departure of their CEO,

“About HP

What does that mean Ray?
