flip-flop is so passe’
With the seeming increased acceptance of political flip-flopping, the once admonished activity has crept its way, with the same acceptance into the tech corporate world.
Three of the latest examples are Hewlett Packard on webos, and pc’s, and Oracle on cloudcompute.
Oct. 2009 Larry Ellison bashes cloud as just a new term for the same old tech.
Oct. 2011 Oracle announces cloud strategy.
Nov. 2011 Oracle has a head of strategy for Oracle Cloud Services Tyler Jewell.
Apr. 2010 HP acquires Palm and webOS.
Jun. 2011 HP announces webos touchpad tablet release in the US.
Aug. 2011 HP announces spin-off of pc business and no longer supports webOS phones, or tablets.
Oct. 2011 HP announces keeping pc biz.
Can we replace the political term flip-flop with whitman’d, or ellison’d, hp’d, or oracled?
Post a comment of your thoughts on the recent rash of corporate flip-flopping, or any other recent examples.
