Dell sees light at end of PC tunnel

Leslie Shaffer | @LeslieShaffer1 10 Hours Ago The PC's fall from popularity helped drive a hard-hit Dell to take itself private, but the computer maker now sees some signs its business there is turning around. "We're seeing that a lot of the smaller players are leaving, which is giving us a bi...

Re: Dell Settles Into Its Post-Public Persona

I don't come here that frequently because with Dhell being private there aren't many stories about them in the media anymore. Also, I lost my job several months ago and looking for work takes all my waking hours. (Thanks to the massive drop in the cost of a barrel of oil for that loss; my employer c...

"sometimes it starts with paper and pencil"

April 3, 2015 5:22 AM Andrew Jones Sometimes the most advanced marketing technology starts with very humble, old-fashioned tech: pencil and paper. In fact, that’s exactly what Dell did as the company got up to speed with marketing technology in a three-year process that has sped its time-to-executi...

A CES miracle: Dell made something that looks really cool
