Hardware, Embedded Systems Having Michael Dell back at the helm of his namesake company hasn't paid any quick dividends when it comes to market share. According to Gartner Research, Dell continued its slide both in the US and worldwide during the first quarter of 2007, while HP opened up an even-wider lead. Interesting in these results is that you can clearly see that Apple's strongest market is still the United States.

Of course it doesn't. However, Apple also outsources a lot of their hardware manufacturing to China and they have twice the net income of Dell.

What I meant to say is Dell cannot blame it on the American worker, a union, health benefits and so on and so forth. Since they are totally offshored in China they should be making Billions I guess the lie of blaming the American worker and how wonderful it is to send jobs out of the country looks to be incorrect.

All of that greed came back full circle it appears, all of the offshoring/outsourcing don't really matter when the 'end user' stops buying the product.

Hmmm. I guess that big building that we have in Oklahoma City with the name "Dell" on the front must belong to another company. Or perhaps China annexed those particular parcels of land and I just never heard about it.

Silly me. I always thought it was an American call center for Dell Inc.
