Dell vs. Jobs: Steel cage match

badarrow Barbara Darrow Profile: badarrow

So it’s come to this: Michael Dell, asked at AllThingsD if he could vanquish Steve Jobs in a fight summed it up: “I could take him.”

Engadget ran with the bit under the headline: “Oh no he didn’t!”

Given that Jobs is credited — fairly or not — with being a creative force in tech while Dell is seen –fairly or not–as a logistics pro, there’s bound to be some bad blood. A few years back, Dell was asked what he would do if he were in charge with Apple and he said he’s shut it down.

No response yet from Steve Jobs, Fake or Real.

    No response from Steve needed. Each company is seeking different market segments and is optimizied for their various segments. Besides, isn't the evidence that Steve is clearly owning Dell reflected in the stock price, market capitalization and clear dominance int creativity and mind share leadership. Dell is great at selling commoditized products.
