I laughed out loud when I read my newspaper website this morning.. The article started by what can be translated to "the beleaguered PC maker, Dell"... Oh the irony

Dell is going private and are buying back all the shares.. I remembered a quote by a certain Michael Dell in 1997, regarding some company with a fruit as a logo...

"What would I do? I’d shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders" - Michael Dell, 1997
That's exactly what he just did with his company! Karma, karma...
