    Hi,

    I got a newsletter from www.techieindex.com mentioned news
    Hewlett-Packard is hoping to find a little more magic from the Magic
    Kingdom.

    The company, which inherited a strategic partnership with the Walt
    Disney company when HP purchased Compaq in 2002, plans on Thursday to
    announce a 10-year extension to the business and technology pact. The
    official announcement will come in Orlando, Fla., as HP CEO Carly
    Fiorina and Disney executives dedicate "Mission: Space," a new Walt
    Disney World ride that was jointly developed by the two companies.

    Jeff Clarke, the former Compaq financial chief who helped create the
    Disney deal for Compaq in 1999, said that Disney and HP also have a
    long history together. HP sold its first oscillator to Disney in 1937
    for use in the making of Fantasia.

    Their prizea offered poll asking Will IM replace e-mail? What do you
    think about it?

    regards,
    Scot
