POETIC JUSTICE.

Steve Jobs wins: Dell to sell itself off, give money back to the shareholders



Quote:
Michael Dell is in talks to sell his computer company Dell Incorporated to a private equity firm, a move which would allow him and his company’s shareholders to cash out before the declining PC vendor loses any more value. Shares of Dell stock have fallen to around $12, notably the same price at which Apple had fallen to in the mid nineties. Michael Dell was asked at the time what Apple should do, and he infamously responded that his rival should sell everything off and give the money back to the shareholders, implying that Apple had no further value to the world.

Apparently not, just 6-1/2 years. Is it too soon to sound the death knell for Dell?

Maybe we should also start continually referring to Dell as "beleaguered". :p

I think if Steve Jobs was around he'd be more concerned with what's happening to apple's stock than Dell's!!

I would bet you he would care less. Steve has said stock price would take of itself. Just create the products that people love to use.

It would be funny if Apple bought Dell, just for *****s and giggles.

True, but he might have been a bit concerned with the latest APPL stock price drops and the shedding of about $200 billion in market value since peaking at more than $700 a share not too many months ago - if he was still running the show.

Because that stock climbed to that price in less than year it has settled down to probably its true value. That's why there was no concern. If it kept dropping then he would of been concerned but in reality what could they do more? At some point people just don't need new devices every year. I have stopped buying a new phone every year.
