Another $58 million Dumped Down The Toilet

January 12, 2011

(CNSNews.com) – A clean energy company is closing its factory in Massachusetts, just two years after it opened the solar plant with about $58-million in taxpayer subsidies, the Boston Globe reported. Evergreen Solar calls itself a victim of weak demand and competition from cheaper suppliers in China.
The newspaper describes Evergreen Solar’s closing a major hit to Democratic Governor Deval Patrick’s efforts to make Massachusetts a hub of the emerging clean-energy industry.

Dell Computer Continues It’s Spin Down The Toilet Bowl

December 31, 2008

The news today is that Michael Dell is doing an executive shake up and replacing several people that he brought on to save the company in 2007. HA HA HA HA!!!!!

Michael Dell’s great plan that he has been feverishly working towards over the past few years is to basically get Dell out of the manufacturing business. He has replaced a significant (by some estimates, a majority) of American engineers with cheap foreign H1B engineers (because, you know, there’s no American engineers that will do the job for what he wants to pay). What this has done is KILLED Dell’s ability to effectively control design and quality.

The main aspect of his plan has been to buy ‘white boxes’ (pre-made computers from cheap chinese manufacturers) and slap a Dell name onit (meaning: leave the engineer, quality control and what not to the chinese). So far, it’s worked spectacularly! The pre-made computers he has been getting have been cheap but, the downside is that they also break.

Dell’s hands off approach has decimated their quality and the tech world knows it. Now, Joe & Jane Bloe are realizing it to.

Michael Dell, in his greed to shaft American workers (engineers & assemblers) has backfired royally as Dell’s quality and reputation go down the toilet. I say GOOD RIDDANCE!

TO: Michael Dell & the board of directors-

You fucking idiot(s). You haven’t realized that the chinese could care less about quality because you’ll keep buying from them because they are cheap. They are on the other side of the world and don’t care about anyone except for themselves.

I hope Dell goes down the toilet and you have invested all your monies with Madoff!
