PreCentral: Former HP CEO Leo Apotheker joins board of French IT company Steria

Recommended Posts

Former HP CEO Leo Apotheker joins board of French IT company Steria

Sometimes we're privileged to watch somebody go down in flames. If you're watching from the outside, it can be pretty amusing. If you've got chips in the game, it's galling and terrifying. But typically, you never expect to see that person again. It's a combination of stigma amongst those who watched it happen, and what we imagine would be utter embarrassment of the fallen.

Not so for former HP CEO Leo Apotheker. After his eleven month reign of terror at the head of the world's largest technology company, Apotheker got the boot in favor of board member and former eBay CEO Meg Whitman. It wasn't until later that we saw just how much of a disaster HP was internally under Apotheker, though we saw plenty of the external signs. Apotheker went down in the kind of flames that made the reentry of Mir look like a kid with a sparkler running around in the back yard on the Fourth of July. He's the guy we though we would never ever see or hear from again, especially following his move back to France.

Nope. We were wrong. So very wrong. Leo's back. French IT company Steria appointed Apotheker and Laetitia Puyfaucher to their board last month, making the announcement today. In addition to her new position with Steria, Puyfaucher is the co-founder and chairwoman of global communications agency WordAppeal. Apotheker, we know him too well. Steria General Manager François Enaud, well, we're not going to judge him too harshly, because we really know nothing about him (or really Steria, for that matter), but he might not know Apotheker that well...

"Given the widespread changes underway in our industry, Leo's expertise in strategic planning and Laetitia's in image development will be precious assets for our group."

Maybe they don't get CNBC in France?

    • Static Tone Mapping for 2017 OLED's (fix dim game HDR)

      Please consider adding a new menu for 2017 OLED's  in HDR Game mode preset called "Static Tone Mapping" to picture options with a selection of 4000 nits (default) or 1000 nits. The reason so many complain about dim HDR on 2017 OLED's is down to an overly tone mapped image, game consoles HDR titles are mastered in 1000 nits range, LG's default tone mapping is set to 4000 nits and because the consoles do not send any HDR metadata, LG tone maps 1000 nits content to 4000 nits. We know this is the cause as advanced tools like HD Fury Vertex can trick the TV into thinking it's 1000 nits content and give correct looking HDR (very complex thing to setup far beyond normal users). This is entirely fixable by giving us a menu under game mode to force the TV to tone map to 1000 nits instead. If you read around online I'm almost certain this is what the special "Active HDR dynamic contrast = low" under Cinema mode does but this setting is not the same under any other preset.  Maybe the "Active HDR" trick is not possible under game mode but forcing the TV to 1000 nits tone mapping is because the HD Fury Vertex can do it so the TV has the capability. The 2018 models do not have this issue as they have "Dynamic Tone Mapping" under picture options so please throw us 2017 owners a bone on this, thanks. (Yes game consoles could possible fix this by sending metadata but that's unlikely).

    • Watching live MLB baseball games on facebook is not possible

      Must have facebook  App to watch and is NOT available on WebOS. This is a huge loss for LG, as facebook adds more live sporting events in the future. Will NOT consider buying another LG TV.

    • Question: Watching TV on subset of your screen

      I have a 60" screen, and for certain older shows recorded in SD it would be great if we could reduce the size of the picture down to say 50". Does anyone know how this could be possible either through TV config or existing apps? The closest I can find is the built-in functionality for 'multi view' but this gives a very small 30" display with no apparent way to increase the size. Is it possible to re-use the code used in 'multi view' and adjust the configs slightly?

    • 2 HMDI channels using Dual Play feature, 2 people watch a different channel.

      I really would like to see the feature to watch 2 HDMI channels at the same time. One with headset, and one on speakers (or two headsets)   This would solve a lot of frustation in families, like one person wants to play a game and the other wants to watch TV etc.   Obvioulsy you would need two HDMI sources. TV decoder, media-player, game console, blu-ray player ....   If you want a marketing name, you can call it Dual Watch With 4K TV's you wouldn't even lose resolution on your two 1080p signals.   Thanks !!
