Bob Snyder, Editor-in-chief of Channel Media Group Our Keynote speaker. Thinking Outside the PC Box
Outside Thinking the PC Box
1.An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. 2.A friend who had once saved your life. 3.The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about.
Is the PC Dead? And how GRAVE is the situation?
PC SALES ARE DOWN
But not dead as a Dodo. Remember the Netbook?
And it is certainly true that the market is changing…
SIGNS of CHANGE
The PCs Biggest Defender is … "Over the last 50 years I have studied and dealt with hundreds of companies…I have seen some awful things done to shareholders. But I have never seen a board conduct a campaign to demean the business prospects of their own company in the way Dell has during the past few weeks. "My simple conclusion is that I believe the PC business is not going away, but the industry is changing."
1.Who's going to be in charge of Dell? What's the decision-making structure? 2.How is Silver Lake thinking of value here -- cash in the bank, value of PC business, value of server business, value of other businesses? 3.What role will Microsoft play? 4.Will new Dell get more aggressive in pricing, in R&D, in tablets/phones, etc.? Or will it pull back and just get run for cash and get less aggressive? Big Questions for DELL

BACK to the BUS STOP The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams."
