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.

People should really stop bringing that up. Apple WAS dead. The ONLY reason it came back to life was Jobs. That's it.

Nobody could've seen that coming. Stop trying to make it seem as if Dell was some sort of rambling idiot - he was exactly right at the time. It's easy and cheap to look back 16 years and claim smug superiority.
