Karma Catches up with Michael Dell

Way way back in 1997, Michael Dell boasted that if he were in charge of Apple, he would “shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders.” My how times change. As of the close of the market on Friday, Apple’s market value is at $159.49 Billion where Mr. Dell’s company is at a paltry $39.46 Billion.

So, Mr. “Dude, you’re getting a” Dell, with more and more companies embracing the Macintosh, the worldwide success of the iPhone, music sales greater than Wal-Mart… (If only I had purchased 1000 shares of Apple when Mr. Dell made his suggestion.)

And in other news, Microsoft has given up its bid for Yahoo.
