    I don't know if this would be overall good or bad. Both companies have extraordinary technical histories, and one could argue that both have fallen on lean times in terms of innovation, so maybe this kick-starts a new period of invention? Or it just results in a joint decline...?!??

    HP has rebuffed the overture, at least for now. It will be interesting to see if anything new develops or if the deal is now dead...

    Got a long way to go. It's a hostile bid that substantially undervalues HP, which has been performing very well and has a strong re-capitalization and cost reduction plan. Xerox needs HP but HP doesn't need Xerox - unless X made an offer H shareholders couldn't refuse, but they're a long way from there.
