Dell Team Members Reflect on Pride Beyond Borders

June 18, 2018

As a member of the LGBTQ community and a proud 19-year tenure at Dell, I am excited to take a few moments to reflect on what this year’s Dell Pride month theme, “Pride Beyond Borders,” means. Personally, I have had the honor of being on the leadership team of Dell Pride Employee Resource Group (ERGs) for the last six years and being a Global Lead for the ERG for last four years. Over that time, I have seen the growth…

Go Inside the Mind Behind Alienware Design

June 13, 2018

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Joe Olmstead here on Direct2Dell, but Tom’s Guide was recently able to grab the Alienware product development director for a special Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on their forum. The questions he received were wide-ranging from how to order an Alienware 17 R5 online without Tobii eye-tracking, to why someone would chose to purchase an Alienware 17 R4 that weighs more than some smaller, more portable systems that are available. Reading it…

By Michael Young This week Business Roundtable, a group of CEO’s from America’s top companies, released its second quarter CEO Economic Outlook Survey, which provides a glimpse into the direction of the U.S. economy based on CEO reports of their company’s future plans. The good news coming out of the report is that the leaders of these major organizations have solid plans for the coming months.

Who Needs an All-In-One Computer, Anyway?

Sleek, simple to set up, energy and space-efficient — even with all the benefits all-in-one computers (AIOs) offer, they haven’t quite reached the ubiquity of their traditional desktop or laptop brethren. That’s partly because an AIO makes the most sense in a few specific use cases, not necessarily as the choice to outfit an entire workforce or family. Four common AIO use cases Desk-centric workers who want the best of both worlds – When you spend your time at a…

Dell Pledges to Eliminate Plastic Straws This World Oceans Day

June 8, 2018

It’s hot here in Central Texas. Like 100°F hot (about 38°C). And while we sweat our way between air-conditioned locations, we’ll probably grab an ice cold beverage. You have to stay hydrated after all. And it’s a pretty good bet that drink will arrive with a plastic straw. Straws with your iced coffee. Straws next to the drink machine. Straws with a glass of water at a restaurant. Straws straws straws. Every day in the United States we use an…

June 6, 2018

The image that often comes to mind when people think of a gamer is a male loner playing in his parents’ basement, but as the world’s premier event for computer and video games, E3, kicks off it’s time to dispel that stereotype with new data.

Chickens, Cats and the Need for Technology

June 4, 2018

The question of whether the chicken or the egg came first has vexed humanity for thousands of years. Even Aristotle and Goethe had a rough time working out this causality dilemma. And the philosophical aspect of the question pervaded even after Darwin proved the entire issue to be false – that there is no ‘first’ chicken or ‘first’ egg. It could be that we are faced with the question again when it comes to technology for this reason. Which came first:…

Pride Beyond Borders

It seems like only yesterday, I was sitting in a Consumer Sales training class as a 24 year old temporary hire. In less than a month, I will celebrate 19 years at Dell Inc., and I have never been prouder than I am today to work for this incredible organization. One of the many reasons for that is since my very first day I felt I could be myself. One of the best compliments I received from a colleague went…
