Hewlett-Packard Company or HP is an American multinational information technology corporation headquartered in Palo Alto, California, United States. It provides hardware, software and services to consumers, small- and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises, including customers in the government, health and education sectors.The company was founded in a one-car garage in Palo Alto by William "Bill" Redington Hewlett, David "Dave" Packard, and Mike Limon, starting with a line of electronic test equipment. HP is the world's leading PC manufacturer and has been since 2007, fending off a challenge by Chinese manufacturer Lenovo, according to Gartner. It specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, data storage, and networking hardware, designing software and delivering services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise and industry standard servers, related storage devices, networking products, software and a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. HP markets its products to households, small- to medium-sized businesses and enterprises directly as well as via online distribution, consumer-electronics and office-supply retailers, software partners and major technology vendors. HP also has services and consulting business around its products and partner products. In 2013 it was the world's second-largest PC vendor by unit sales.Hewlett-Packard company events have included the spin-off of its electronic and bio-analytical measurement instruments part of its business as Agilent Technologies in 1999, its merger with Compaq in 2002, the sponsor of Mission: Space in 2003, and the acquisition of EDS in 2008, which led to combined revenues of $118.4 billion in 2008 and a Fortune 500 ranking of 9 in 2009. In November 2009, HP announced the acquisition of 3Com, with the deal closing on April 12, 2010. On April 28, 2010, HP announced the buyout of Palm, Inc. for $1.2 billion. On September 2, 2010, HP won its bidding war for 3PAR with a $33 a share offer , which Dell declined to match.On October 6, 2014, Hewlett-Packard announced plans to split the PC and printers business from its enterprise products and services business. The split is expected to close by October 2015 and will result in two publicly traded companies: Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and HP, Inc. Wikipedia.

Certain examples described herein provide a data processing system and method adapted for event processing. These examples provide for distribution of data processing operations between server computing devices (120). In one case, a plurality of processing stages (132) are implemented using computing instances on the server computing devices. In this case, the computing instances (150) are assigned to the server computing devices in order to perform at least one data processing operation in parallel. Certain examples described herein then provide for the distribution of data between computing instances such that parallelism is maintained for data processing operations. In certain cases, a composite key is used. In this case, a composite key value is computed for a set of data fields associated with a data item to be processed. This key value is computed based on a data processing operation to be performed. The key value is used to route the data item to an associated computing instance implementing the data processing operation.

In one example, a portable speaker is provided. The portable speaker includes a communication interface to receive an audio file from a portable computing device, a machine-readable storage medium to store the audio file, a speaker to output sound corresponding to the audio file, and a management module. The management module is to (i) add the audio file to a queue to be output by the speaker; (ii) analyze the audio file to determine a baseline audio level for the audio file, and utilize the determined baseline audio level to normalize an audio level of another audio file subsequently added to the queue; and (iii) in response to the number of audio files in the queue decreasing below a threshold, analyze metadata from audio files previously or currently in the queue to determine attribute information, and request audio content from an Internet service provider based on the attribute information.


A cartridge (1) to connect to a printer, the cartridge comprising a powder reservoir (2), a carrier (5) holding authenticity information (7, 9), a powder flow stimulator (3) in or near the reservoir (2), coupled to the carrier (5) so that a first stimulator movement displaces at least part of the carrier (5).

Example implementations relate to powering a keyboard using power received via a secondary coil. For example, an apparatus includes a support member to support a part of a portable computing device in a tilted orientation. The support member includes a secondary coil to receive power from a primary coil in the portable computing device. The apparatus also includes a base member connected to the support member. The base member includes a first wireless module to receive a first portion of the power from the secondary coil and to communicate with a second wireless module in the portable computing device. The base member also includes a keyboard to receive a second portion of the power from the secondary coil and to generate signals to transmit to the portable computing device via the first wireless module.

A method of manufacturing a coating for an e-paper assembly includes forming a coating layer from conductive particles dispersed within an insulative matrix. A field is applied to cause the conductive particles to align in generally parallel, spaced apart elongate patterns that are generally perpendicular to a plane through which the coating layer extends. At ambient temperatures and without applied pressure, the coating layer is cured via radiation energy while maintaining the applied field.
