Yesterday, Dell announced the largest technology M&A in history with a
proposed $67B buyout of EMC and VMware (via EMC’s 80% ownership of VMW).
The combined company will have over $80B in revenue, employ tens of thousands
of people around the world and sell everything from PCs, servers & storage to

values – Dell sells to small to medium size companies and EMC addresses the
larger enterprise needs. The big attract... (more)
