So the big news in the PC universe is the exploding Dell story: http://money.cnn.com/2006/08/14/technology/dell.reut/index.htm?cnn=yes
In a more perfect world, free of lawyers and whatnot it would be funny if other PC makers not affected by the defective batteries would have “Fire Sales” on their web sites. Or have slogans saying things like “Fired up about your last PC?….then buy one of ours!” And the potential is endless. Feel free to post your best attempts. I welcome it.
