Hardware, Embedded Systems "Dell, the personal-computer maker that lost almost a third of its value last year, is in buyout talks with private-equity firms, two people with knowledge of the matter said. The shares surged." So yeah, like I said - no wonder Microsoft has entered the hardware business. The PC OEM era is over.

Atari was well known when I grew up, but long after their demise did I learn the meaning.

Well, we had no Wikipedia or Internet access back then.

If anyone of you is bored it can be fun to find out how companies got their names. Epson, Sharp and Sony are very nice ones.
