HP: Caught In ChannelWeb, ChannelInsider Cat Fight
Meow. A cat fight has broken out between ChannelWeb and ChannelInsider, and Hewlett-Packard got caught in the middle. On the one hand, ChannelWeb praises HP’s new Web connected printer. Clap, clap. On the other hand, rival ChannelInsider pans the printer. Boo, hiss. But perhaps that isn’t the full story.

- On the same day, ChannelInsider responded with six reasons why the HP printer would fail.

Time for The VAR Guy to move onto his seventh coffee of the day. Anybody ready to top that?
