BTW, the launch of Playbook was RUMORED to be what took Apple down 18 points on the open.
It has since recovered [at 288 now] ... but there was another story floating around this morning that Tim Cook was going to take Hurd’s place at HP. He since has personally denied it.
I’d be more scared of Tim Cook leaving Apple than the Playbook, FWIW.
Pinging you to the Tim Cook rumor ... it’s been out for hours so I suspect you know.
