What do laser printers by Apple, Brother, Hewlett-Packard and QMS all have in common? Their insides -- the "engines" -- are all made by Canon.One of the great features of the Canon engine, which I've extolled before, is that when you replace the toner cartridge you're also replacing, within the cartridge, the drum and many of the printer's moving parts. It's like the oil filter of your car containing the valves and cylinders of your engine.The reason this is great is that maintenance is kept to a minimum.

WATCHING the 8- by 10-inch print emerge from the new color printer brought back memories of seeing my first photo magically spring to life in a darkroom's developer tray.Now, for the first time in my experience, a picture was coming out of a computer printer looking for all the world like a traditional photograph.The printer in question is the Hewlett-Packard Co.'s Photosmart model, a $500 unit designed to do one thing well: print photographs on paper.It does work decently with text, but units half the price do every bit as good a job.Most can also print envelopes, handle papers longer than letter size and hold more than 20 sheets; the Photosmart does not. And it works only with Windows 95.But it does print photos very well indeed.

In a direct challenge to Japanese companies that dominate the fastest-growing segment of the computer market, Hewlett-Packard Co. said last week that it would start selling a personal computer about the size of a calculator.The market for computers that can be carried in a briefcase or pocket, yet offer power and speed rivaling desktop systems, has already been ceded by some analysts and industry executives to Asian manufacturers.Ever smaller computers, ranging downward in size from laptop, to notebook to palm-sized, are becoming increasingly important because their sales are growing much faster than those of desktop computers.

Patricia Dunn is out. Joe Torre stays in. Dennis Hastert, for now, is hanging on. The high-profile jobs of chairing Hewlett-Packard's board of directors, managing the New York Yankees and running the U.S. House of Representatives could hardly differ more in their scope and meaning, but events of recent months have brought leaders of those institutions, and others, face-to-face with a law of human behavior older and more formidable than American corporate...

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- With pressure mounting over its troubled internal investigation of boardroom leaks, Hewlett-Packard is shifting into serious damage control. Chief Executive Officer Mark Hurd, until recently out of the spotlight on the investigation, offered yesterday to testify before a congressional committee conducting an inquiry on the investigation. The offer came after a committee member suggested looking at whether Hurd should testify. In another part of HP's damage control, Hurd will hold a news conference today at the company's Palo Alto, Calif.

Hewlett-Packard Co.'s Ann Livermore won a promotion in May to oversee a much bigger chunk of the computer maker's business. Now Livermore is on the hot seat. The executive vice president's domain was expanded to include the company's troubled enterprise storage and server business, which lost $208 million in the most recent quarter. The unit's losses dragged down results, triggering a sell-off that clipped 17 percent off HP's share price. The stock gained half of that back last week, but fell again yesterday to $17.88, which is $1.64 below where it stood the day before the company posted its latest earnings Aug. 12. HP's poor quarterly results prompted renewed scrutiny by analysts who say the company's two-year-old merger with Compaq Computer Corp.

After today's blackboard lesson teaching words that rhyme, the young children at The Door community center in East Baltimore will spend a few moments each playing educational games on computers. "They do stuff that is fun but they don't realize they are actually learning because they are having so much fun," said Jim Woods, a minister who is chief operating officer of the faith-based program. "It's good for us because we have successfully tied learning to technology." That's exactly what the folks at Hewlett-Packard Co., the California-based computer maker that provided The Door with 15 computers, want to hear.

When Hewlett-Packard Co. bought Compaq Computer Corp. last year in a $19 billion blockbuster technology deal, the company expected to become the undisputed leader in the crucial market for personal computers. Instead, HP is struggling to retain the top spot and is losing money to boot. Last week, the Palo Alto, Calif., computer giant reported dismal results for its fiscal third quarter, prompting investors to shave more than $7 billion off the company's market value as its stock plunged more than 10 percent in one day. The worst of the bad news: HP's struggling PC unit had slipped back into the red after two quarters of meager profits.

PALO ALTO, Calif. - Hewlett-Packard Co., the world's No. 2 computer maker, said yesterday that it may acquire Pricewater- houseCoopers LLP's management and information-technology consulting business for as much as $18 billion in cash and stock. This would be HP's first major acquisition since Chief Executive Officer Carly Fiorina joined the company last year. Fiorina is seeking to drive growth by offering more services to potential buyers of the company's computer systems. PricewaterhouseCoopers wants to split its consulting business from auditing partly to address regulators' concerns about conflicts of interest.

"If you don't need support as often, if you don't need repairs, then you're going to be more satisfied," said Ben Gottesman, executive editor of the magazine, which will publish its findings in the July 22 issue.
