Dell Blowing Up in Japan


When I saw the headline, I was happy. I am a shareholder and thought it meant blow up as in take off. You know, similar to bad like Shaft and all that.

As it turns out, it really blew up- as in exploded.

It seems that at some conference in Japan a Dell laptop suddenly exploded into flames. Granted, my Dell laptop sometimes feels like its on fire when sitting on my lap, but thus far I haven’t been able to cook over it.

I suspect a faulty battery was to blame.

This is not the first time Dells began to spontaneously combust.

But don’t look for another fire sale.
