Featured Blogger 3D TV Must Be Stopped
By Thomas Claburn

By Elias Khnaser
HP's trumping of Dell's bid for 3PAR is a masterful preemptive strike. HP is certainly not that interested in 3PAR and will most likely not counter offer should Dell choose to pursue the deal. What HP is interested in is making the buy as expensive as possible for Dell in order to throw a wrench into the PC giant's further acquisitions ambitions.
