Yeah, some companies haven't learned how to make their profits long term. Look at GM. They cut corners left and right on most vehicles they make to maximize profits, but ended up turning out bland turds with the blingy Chevrolet badge for us to spend money on every week fixing (my family has owned many GM cars). Now they need a government bailout to stay afloat!

DELL is a corner cutter, but not as ludicrous as eMachines. If they actually built slightly better quality hardware, or more universal (read: I can upgrade it!) hardware, they could easily get back on top. Until then, I would much rather get a Blackberry or a Samsung smartphone.

Your pain is not alone Mr. Overmann. Actually the "e" statement was a joke. But what you say is not. Dell was great until the clippings began. But my point is that HTC has basically taken a smart path in trying to give a computer experience in a handset. I feel more companies such as Acer and Dell which have recently announced their interests in Smartphones, we will see more of this. HP had the IPAC and I have reason to believe we will be hearing from them again very shortly.

GM has always been our fammily as well. Although I have entertained another try at Mopar. I owned a 76 dodge cornet just after my 79 graduation and loved it. It was a retired police interceptor with a 400ci engine. Extremely fast car. Not a chick magnet though! Fortunately, I don't have to worry about that now with a Wife and Kids.
