I blew water out of my nose yesterday when I saw Todd Bradley's comments about how Dell is following HP by adopting the channel business and by redesiging its products. I mean, that really is funny. On one hand they have people running around saying how we aren't serious about the channel and then there are guys like Bradley telling people that our channel business is copying theirs. If they want to talk out of both sides of their face, that's fine with me.
The design comment was good too. As if they own the design world.
If any company is following any other it would be HP following IBM.
I can't even remember an iSCSI SAN deal where HP was a threat.
And blades… ahhh… I like our own trajectory there too. Here's a video you might find amusing.
