Michael Dell Channels His Inner Carl Icahn
Okay, to be fair, here is one of Michael Dell's most infamous quotes on what he'd do with Apple if he owned it. The quote is from October 1997 and was given at the Gartner Symposium and ITxpo97.
"What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders."
In hindsight it sounds like something you might have heard Carl Icahn say today. According to an Oct. 18, 2011, interview with TechCrunch, Michael Dell says the quote was "misconstrued."
