Hewlett-Packard today rolled out 158 new products in yet another effort to make life easier for PC users. Or at least for HP users. According to CNet’s article, "the company aims to better connect its portfolio of products with methods ranging from adopting common user interfaces to adding wireless networking and common memory card slots to all of its consumer devices".

Our school system buy lots of HP products (mostly cheap Compaq desktops) and they have a long way to go to be able to call their stuff "quality", much less simple. Hey, HP. How about this idea instead: make it easier for me to use any device of MY choosing with your computers and, as an added bonus, make it so the computer doesn’t crash all the time when trying to use those devices. Or is that trying to be too much like Apple?
