iPhone Issue v. Dell’s Issue

By now we’ve heard that Apple’s got a little problem with reception in their new iPhones. They say a software fix is on the way that’ll correct much of the problems with reception indicators.

Dell, on the other hand

After the math department at the University of Texas noticed some of its Dell computers failing, Dell examined the machines. The company came up with an unusual reason for the computers’ demise: the school had overtaxed the machines by making them perform difficult math calculations.

Now, Dell has a lawsuit on its hands after millions of PCs they sold between 2003 and 2005 had faulty capacitors, that, over time failed miserably. The funny thing is that all computer do is math. Without that, they don’t do anything.

I think Dell has a new slogan: “Dell PCs. They don’t do math, just like every other American”.
