Dell Will Die

Sometimes, it seems that the Fake Steve Jobs is actually the Real Steve Jobs. Today’s entry on Dell’s future prospects is very insightful (at least to the halfway mark where Steve begins to show signs of megalomania) – the only lasting innovation is from product design. When companies pursue process improvement at the expense of product development, any advantages are quickly erased by the competition. Couple that with bad business practices such as screwing your customers and suppliers and outsourcing your engineering talent overseas, and you end up getting booted from the Dow.

Even though we will be buying from Dell now and for the foreseeable future, their demise will not be mourned nor missed.

If you don’t dare bet on yourself and your own people, you shouldn’t be in business – Fake Steve Jobs
