Dell has apparently decided that their laptop lines could use a boost in sales — one that can only be achieved by slapping some powder-colored shells on them and marketing them to women as portable digital recipe books, on their new site called, I shit you not, “Della“.
3. Get moving: Tools like Gyminee help you track workouts and reach your fitness goals. You can even map out new running routes via sites like Map my run.
Yeah, they packaged in some fitness software to help you shed some pounds! There’s also a note at the top of the “tech tips” page stating that the page has changed recently due to user comments — I’m assuming because of the original tech tips list, as documented by the MSNBC article above:
the site’s “tech tips” includes a feature, “Seven Unexpected Ways a Netbook Can Change Your Life,” which starts out by saying, “Once you get beyond how cute they are, you’ll find that netbooks can do a lot more than check your e-mail.”
Among those uses: Finding recipes online (Wow! I didn’t know you could do that!), making “your mini … your meditation buddy as you take mini-breaks throughout your day (schedule them, with reminders, on your calendar),” and using a netbook “to track calories, carbs and protein with ease, watch online fitness videos, map your running routes and more.”
Okay, so you’re quietly scrubbing the sillier stuff, good on you Dell. That’s admitting you screwed this one up bigtime. What’ll REALLY turn this whole thing around is if you’d get rid of the “accessorizing” options like purse-shaped laptop totes, the flowery shells, and, oh, maybe, stop making shitty laptops!
