HP cancels media hub

Marc Perton

Amid all the announcements of new products at CES,, here's one you're not going to find: HP's media hub, announced last year by none other than former HP CEO Carly Fiorina. The computer, a Linux box that would play HD video, serve as a DVR and play just about any other kind of digital media, has been quietly killed, according to The Wall Street Journal. According to the paper, the company decided it could add more innovation to products such as printers, digital cameras and PCs. But we think it's just a case of a company allergy to all things Carly. Since the former CEO's departure, the company has, among other things, ended its iPod partnership with Apple, which was initiated by Fiorina.
