Dell’s hell as earnings fall short

ZDNet: Dell announced on Monday that third-quarter revenue will fall well short of expectations due to sluggish consumer sales and a faulty component in its OptiPlex desktop PC. […] The leader in computer manufacturing blames its shortfall partially on sluggish consumer sales in the U.S. and U.K. […] Dell fell into similar territory in [the previous] quarter’s financial earnings report, when it reported it had lost market share in nearly every regional market.

Might this be the twist in the tale of Dell Hell as religiously chronicled by Jeff Jarvis?
