Dell MP3

In reply to Rob Enderle
"I watched what appeared to be a similar lead on the killed Dell (Nasdaq: DELL) MP3 player. Information got leaked, and Apple's supporters turned perceptions of the product so negative that Dell never released it."

Never released? The product was called the Dell DJ Ditty. I worked for Dell Retail when it was released. I sold exactly six units between Feb 2006 when it was released and Aug 2006 when it was discontinued. It was really the award winning Creative Nomad/Zen dressed up as a Dell branded product. So please don't say it was never released. It failed on its own merits - the biggest one being that it was not so easy to use.

How important is a candidate's knowledge of technology in winning your vote?
Extremely -- technology is at the center of most of the world's big problems and solutions.
Very -- a candidate who doesn't understand technology can't relate to young people.
Somewhat -- a general understanding is sufficient.
Not very -- choosing good advisers is more important than direct knowledge.
Not at all -- technology is often a distraction from more important issues.
