starting to lose customers over its glorious new plans to dump its hardware arm and get more into software.
Already the outfit's plans are being treated with suspicion by investors but the Wall Street Journal seems to think that the outfit is starting to lose some of its best customers.
It quoted Ray Barnard, chief information officer of Fluor Corp., an engineering and construction company that spends around $25 million a year on new hardware and software. Fluor was recently considering buying high-end computers capable of displaying 3D graphics from HP and did a pilot project involving tablets with the tech company.
He told the WSJ that he put that on hold and he will not buy from the company because it appears that they're lost right now. This is the sort of news HP does not want to hear.
