More to Protest

Columnist Alex Beam of the Boston Globe says he just bought a Lenovo computer. He's boycotting Hewlett-Packard—because, ‘Last fall we learned that Hewlett-Packard sicced private investigators on journalists, going through their trash and monitoring their phone calls. I reason that if Hewlett-Packard wants to prevent my peers from engaging in the lawful activity of newsgathering, then I have every right to punish them in the marketplace.’
I guess I’ll be adding to the list of companies I boycott.
My previous successes are remarkable. You’ll notice I’ve driven WalMart to it’s knees!

HP had a major top down shake-up over that. They even fired their CEO.
