Humor When Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1997, Micheal Dell was asked what he would do to fix Apple. Dell replied: "What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders." Following Friday's news that Apple had surpassed Dell's value of $71.97 billion, Jobs wrote an email to his staff: "Team, it turned out that Michael Dell wasn't perfect at predicting the future. Based on today's stock market close, Apple is worth more than Dell. Stocks go up and down, and things may be different tomorrow, but I thought it was worth a moment of reflection today." Who said capitalism is humourless?

Suck it Dell!

But don't take back my 2405FPW, I love it so!

Can't wait for Dell to release a dual-core laptop to see how/if they can compete with Apple's MacBook Pros. Also can't wait for Apple's PowerMac replacements...
