Dell hell, continued: Laptop 51
: I have no way to verify whether this is true, but a commenter in my Dell laments says he found a spy in his laptop.
It didn’t take two seconds to smoke the hoax: see the comments. I posted this on the train; found the nearest starbucks; came online and there was the fact-checking mob. Thanks, guys. Of course, something smelled funny but I’m glad you found the cheese. You’re better men than I, Gungas.
: UPON REFLECTION: What I should have done: (a) I shouldn’t have posted this on the train, where I was bandwidth-challeneged and didn’t have the time, in any sense of the word, to look it up. (b) I should have posted it as a question: I can’t believe this is true; has anyone seen anything about this? (c) Whenever I see anything that’s too amazing to be true, I should go to Snopes first. I’m going to head over there right now to see whether Google’s stock price is a hoax.
