Gaming News: "AlienDell"
Posted: Monday April 17th, 2006 by

Last month the first rumblings of "informed" speculation sounded about Dell's intended acquisition of Alienware. A week later Dell officially announced the purchase. To the gaming world it was obvious that Dell, unable to attain it through their own efforts, was more than willing to try to buy high-end computer credibility. Alienware's CEO will now report to Dell CFO Jim Schneider but the company will continue to operate seperately from Dell.

Hopefully this means Dell will not tinker with Alienwares branding. But, I have my doubts.

Yes, I know this is old news; but, to be honest, I forgot. Reading a critical analysis of the merger over at Slate brought the story back to mind.

In other news the Titanic sank on it's maiden transatlantic voyage after colliding with an iceberg. And, Orson Wells' broadcast of "War of the Worlds" triggers panic across the US as listeners mistake the radio special for actual events.
