Dell vs Apple.

images-1What did Michael Dell tell Apple in 1997?
“I’d shut it down and give the money back to shareholders.”

This post is about renewal. One for the Apple fan club.
A throwback to 1997.
"A decade ago, Dell's market value was $130 billion while Apple's was $23 billion. Today, Dell's is down 74% to $24 billion while Apple's has exploded 898% to $234 billion"
