HP: Don't ask, we'll tell
HP is still having its press conference Friday, but a company representative told CNET News.com that neither CEO Mark Hurd nor outside lawyers will be taking questions.
"They will be providing statements, but pending Mark's appearance next Thursday at (a congressional hearing), neither Mark nor the law firm representative will be able to take questions from the media," an HP representative said in a voice mail. "We apologize for any difficulty."
The House Energy and Commerce Committee said late Thursday that it would accept Hurd's offer to testify at a Sept. 28 hearing.
