Hewlett-Packard Other Publications
Many other publications have been published by HP. Some were "Internal Only", used to give HP's technical, marketing or sales personnel confidential information about company related activities and guide lines. We own a lot of such documents. We will use the information they contain for cross-checking historical facts, but the contents will remain private.
