Can 'The HP Thing' kill Carly Fiorina's presidential bid

23 Apr 2015 by Paul Dempsey

Carly Fiorina, CEO of Hewlett-Packard from 1999-2005, is expected to go public on May 4 with her bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. She could emerge as a fascinating and serious candidate with a rare background in management, politics and technology.

9 Mar 2015 by Jack Devine

Nikola was round the other night. Just hanging out, at my place. She's been doing that quite a lot, lately. I'm drawing no conclusions; I'm just enjoying the moments. She had a big bag with her.
