Be careful what you say

All bloggers and presenters should read this and LEARN...

Even the best of us can slip up sometimes, but on a slow news day/Friday I think this is worth a laugh and probably a moment of thought.

On October 6, 1997, in response to the question of what he'd do if he was in charge of Apple Computer, Dell founder and then CEO Michael Dell stood before a crowd of several thousand IT executives and answered flippantly, "What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders."

On January 13, 2006, after a little more than eight years of hard work, Apple Inc. passed Dell, Inc. in market value, $72,132,428,843 vs. $71,970,702,760 at market close respectively.

Got any snappy retorts for that one, Mr. Dell?
