Hewlett-Packard needs your help. In the wake of CEO Carly Fiorinas warning that the company will miss first-quarter earnings due to "worsening economic conditions and a deceleration in corporate and consumer IT spending," (dont you love corporate-speak?) HP flacks are working the phones.

The company has been calling reporters soliciting their opinions on what HP should do now that "the honeymoon for Carly is over." Want to join in? Go to www.hp.com/hpinfo/ceo/email and send Carly a message. She does not promise to respond personally but says she "often pass[es] along suggestions and observations to my colleagues." HP did not say whether it was offering prizes for the best suggestion.
