A quanto pare Apple ha superato Dell come capitalizzazione in borsa.
Forse Michael Dell, il CEO di intel, farebbe meglio a ritirare quanto detto in una sua intervista nel 1997….. per spiegarsi meglio….. gli era stata posta la domanda cosa avrebbe fatto se fosse stato alla guida di Apple. La sua risposta?
“Cosa farei? La chiuderei e ridarei i soldi agli azionisti”.

On October 6, 1997, in response to the question of what he’d do if he was in charge of Apple Computer, Dell founder and then CEO Michael Dell stood before a crowd of several thousand IT executives and answered flippantly, “What would I do? I’d shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders.”
A little more than a month later, on November 10, 1997, new Apple iCEO Steve Jobs responded, speaking in front of an image of Michael Dell’s bulls-eye covered face, “We’re coming after you, you’re in our sights.”
Today, after a little more than eight years of hard work, Apple Computer, Inc. passed Dell, Inc. in market value. That’s right, at market close Apple Computer ($72,132,428,843) is now worth more than Dell ($71,970,702,760).
Got any snappy retorts for that one, Mr. Dell?
Luckily, Apple has had the right man in charge since July 1997; a man with the vision and the ability to do what lesser men think impossible.
