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.
