‘Dell Dude’ wants to save Dell by bringing back the ‘Dell Dude’
Ben Curtis is probably best known as the half baked star of the “Dude, you’re getting a Dell” from the early 2000s. In Curtis’ mind, though, he’s the answer to all of Dell’s problems.

Dell should hire the Taco Bell Chihuahua … oh wait, she’s dead. :(

Our report contains straightforward, proven ways to pare back $1 trillion from the deficit while increasing productivity and enabling sustainable competitiveness.
Dell CEO Michael Dell • Regarding the suggestions the Technology CEO Council has for the President regarding reining in the national debt. Dell, whose own company knows something about leveraging partnerships and cutting corners in the money-saving process, is one of many CEOs backing the plan, which reportedly would cut debt by around $1 trillion in a decade using such methods as consolidating and standardizing processes, using virtualization and cutting energy usage.
