There's No Business Like Small Business

With hurricane winds and rain lashing the nation's capital today, 
business people from around the United States gathered in Washington, D.C., 
to celebrate the 50th year of the U.S. Small Business Administration 
(SBA). The SBA honored HP with its Small Business Champion Award, and HP 
was the key corporate sponsor of the SBA's National Entrepreneurial 
Conference & Expo on Sept. 18-19. Compaq computer, which HP merged with in 
May 2002, was launched courtesy of a loan from the SBA.

Both President George Bush and Hewlett-Packard Chairman and CEO Carly 
Fiorina were scheduled to speak, but the hurricane prevented them from 
attending. The president sent Vice President Dick Cheney while Fiorina 
addressed the audience through a video call. Both Fiorina and Cheney 
spoke at a special SBA breakfast honoring women entrepreneurs, and HP took 
advantage of the event to roll out sweeping new programs, services and 
products for small- and medium-sized businesses, collectively branded 
as HP's Smart Office Initiative. -- Mike Elgan.

Jury rules in HP's favor in inkjet case

A North Carolina jury concluded that HP did not try to fool consumers 
into believing ink cartridges packed with its printers were full. The 
jurors deliberated for 2 1/2 hours on Sept. 12 before rejecting the 
lawsuit brought by a Chapel Hill man who claimed the company cheated 
customers by selling half-filled inkjet cartridges.

Inside HP This Week

Service Center Smackdown?: Robert Cringely of Infoworld reports: "HP is 
saying 'Hasta la vista, baby' to its network of independent service 
centers, says one of my sources, who got his termination letter last 
month. HP is reportedly dropping the number of authorized repair shops for 
the Presario and Pavilion lines from about 1000 to about 40, all big 
electronics chains." No word back from the HP PR machine on whether or not 
there's any truth to this rumor.
