    On the heels of Lenovo’s massive $3.5 million fine for preinstalling adware on laptops without users‘ consent, Hewlett-Packard is jumping in with both feet when it comes to installing spyware on its PCs without the consumer’s permission. According to numerous reports gathered by Computer World, the brand is deploying a telemetry client (a system data that is uploaded by the Connected User Experience and Telemetry component), on customer computers without asking permission. The software, which was first identified on November 15 of this year, is called “HP Touchpoint Analytics Service” and appears to replace the self-managed HP Touchpoint Manager solution....

    HP Inc said it expects to cut about 3,000 to 4,000 jobs over the next three years, as the maker of printers and personal computers continues to struggle with a subdued market, sending its shares down 1.3 percent in extended trading. HP, which houses the hardware business of former Hewlett-Packard Co, said in February it would accelerate its restructuring program and slash around 3,000 jobs by the end of fiscal 2016. HP Chief Executive Dion Weisler said the market continued to be volatile, facing pressures and uncertainties. "Our core markets are challenged and macro economic conditions are in flux right...

    A Hewlett-Packard executive and Republican fundraiser said Tuesday she will back Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for president. Meg Whitman said she plans to give a "substantial" contribution to Clinton's campaign to make sure Republican nominee Donald Trump doesn't become the next president. “I will vote for Hillary, I will talk to my Republican friends about helping her, and I will donate to her campaign and try to raise money for her,” Whitman told The New York Times on Tuesday . Whitman, who ran for governor of California in 2010, said she doesn't agree with Clinton on many issues, but noted...

    “Carly Fiorina pioneered– pioneered– the practice of outsourcing jobs,” Miller said. “Her great legacy in business has been in finding a way to shift jobs to lower wage countries and replacing American workers with foreign workers. So I think we can all say that Ted Cruz, who supports offshoring jobs, and Carly Fiorina, who supports offshoring jobs, they’re now officially the outsourcing ticket.” “A critical issue for the state of Indiana is steel production and manufacturing,” Miller said, noting that, “on the crucial trade vote in 2015, Ted Cruz voted for Barack Obama’s trade bill that would destroy… the middle...

The Texas senator plans to formally unveil his pick for vice president Wednesday afternoon in Indianapolis. That's according to a Republican with direct knowledge of the plan, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized speak before the official announcement. Cruz is trying to generate momentum for his struggling campaign. GOP front-runner Donald Trump swept primaries in five Northeastern states on Tuesday. Cruz has been mathematically eliminated from winning enough delegates to clinch the Republican...

    HP wants to drive the "next industrial revolution" and spark a change in the way products are manufactured with its new 3D printers. The company's first 3D printers will ship later this year, said Cathie Lesjak, chief financial officer for HP, speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference this week. HP first announced 3D printers in 2014, and is now preparing for the big launch. HP is looking to hire materials experts, mechanical engineers, managers and sales people for its push into 3D printing. HP has a rich history in printing and is entering a 3D printing...

    Samsung's got some new friends in its legal battle against Apple -- including farmers, African American small businesses and an electronics retailer. Legal experts, nonprofit organizations and technology companies have filed amicus or "friend of the court" briefs in support of Samsung, urging the US Supreme Court to consider the patent-infringement case. They want the nation's highest court to better define design patents and limit the damages that can be awarded. And they're using Apple v. Samsung as the case that hopefully gets the federal government to enact patent reforms, preventing so-called patent trolls from cashing in on intellectual property....

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says her campaign is in it for the long haul, and as such it’s not yet the right moment to begin a campaign ad blitz. “There will come a time for ads, but honestly, other candidates have already spent millions on ads and it’s done nothing for them. So I think the time is not yet,” she said Friday in South Carolina, according to the New York Times. Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, says her focus right now is on earned media, particularly in debates. “Every time I get out on that debate stage,...

    It may be back to the ‘kiddie table’ for Fiorina, new poll shows candidate has seen major decline in support. Carly Fiorina could be headed back to the “kiddie table.” The recently resurgent 2016 Republican candidate may have peaked, a slew of polls released Tuesday showed. Fiorina, who had benefitted from a strong performance at last month’s second GOP primary debate, has seen the biggest decline in support since the event, the polls found. In a CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday, the former tech executive came in a tie for seventh place, getting the support of only 4% of registered Republican...

    Remember Carly Fiorina? It now seems forever ago, but in late September she was being heralded as the next big thing in the Republican primary field—the outsider candidate who could marshall establishment support, and finally slay the Trump dragon. Now look at the polls. An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll Monday has her at 7 percent, running behind the much-maligned Jeb Bush. That’s down from 11 in late September. A CNN poll released Tuesday is even bleaker. She comes in fourth—tied with also-ran Chris Christie and behind Rand Paul, who’s on campaign deathwatch. That’s even worse than it seems, because in...

    Carly Fiorina's time near the top of the Republican polls may have come to an end, as another national CNN/ORC poll out Tuesday suggests. Just 4 percent of Republican or Republican-leaning voters said they would cast their votes for her in a primary election, down from 15 percent in September. Overall, Donald Trump led the field with 27 percent, followed again by Ben Carson with 22 percent, up 8 points from last month's survey. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio both earned 8 percent, followed by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul...

    Donald Trump and Ben Carson now stand alone at the top of the Republican field, as Carly Fiorina's brief foray into the top tier of candidates seeking the GOP nomination for president appears to have ended, a new CNN/ORC poll finds. Fiorina has lost 11 points in the last month, declining from 15% support and second place to 4% and a tie for seventh place. At the same time, Carson has gained eight points and joins Trump as the only two candidates with support above 20%.
