You Can Now Watch 20 Hours of Video on Your Dell XPS 13

April 2, 2018

When comparing the 2017 Dell XPS 13 (9360) and the updated for 2018 Dell XPS 13 (9370) launched at CES, Windows Central said: “Best performance almost always means going with the new model, and the same appears true here.” But wait. Just because we launched a new XPS 13 doesn’t mean we stopped improving the performance of the previous one. In fact, we’ve been working with our partners at Intel to further optimize the battery life on the 2017 XPS…

Five Tips to Help You Avoid Tech Support Phone Scams

For the past several years, we’ve highlighted to customers the technical support scams plaguing companies around the world, including in the IT industry. These scams are not new. Fraudsters continue to design ways — from fake websites to phishing emails— to steal personal information for criminal purposes. One such scam affecting Dell and other well-known companies — the telephone technical support scam — is becoming increasingly sophisticated and difficult to distinguish from legitimate tech support calls. In this scam, individuals…

DRAFT: Seleção Draft – O Valuation Latino

O valuation latino O The Next Web aponta os motivos para o valuation das startups latinas ainda estar muito abaixo das do Vale do Silício. Entre eles: as poucos aquisições que ocorrem no continente (pelo fato das grandes empresas serem familiares e não estarem preocupadas em competir com as globais), a raridade que é startups estrangeiras investirem nas da América Latina (o que parece estar mudando com a compra da 99 pela chinesa Didi), os IPOs ainda serem incomuns (com…

Conversations at #ShiftForum: Protecting Human Capital in the Digital Age

March 30, 2018

We’ve all heard the dystopian predictions of doom in which robots will take over the world and leave us humans with nothing to do. I don’t subscribe to that extreme view. In fact, recent research reveals that business leaders are divided about the impact machines will have on our day-to-day work in the near future, but they all agreed on one thing: balancing technology with a human touch will be vital to success. So who is looking out for the…

What Makes Your Brand a Magnet for Great Talent?

March 29, 2018

The battle to attract top talent in the technology industry has been raging worldwide for years. As Meghan Biro, an author and CEO of TalentCulture Consulting Group, puts it, “The talent war is rampant in the tech industry, and engineers are now attracted not only by financial prospects, but also because of a brand’s name and reputation. When they join these companies, the workplace culture is so strong that every little detail embodies what the company stands for. This is…

Earth: It Gives You a Lifetime, Can You Give It an Hour?

March 22, 2018

This Saturday (March 24) at 8:30 pm, millions of people, businesses and landmarks around the globe will set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights and make some noise for action on climate change. It’s called Earth Hour, and I’m proud that Dell is once again turning off logo signs on many buildings and darkening areas (where it won’t interfere with safety or security) from 8:30-9:30pm local time. Dell Facilities, Planet ERG and the Legacy of Good…

Artivist Shares Three Ways You Can Add Social Impact to Your Life

March 21, 2018

I must admit that the term artivist, while easily recognizable as a combination of artist and activist, was new to me when I saw it used in the title of a recent DELL EXPERIENCE at SXSW panel. Apparently, it is at least 10 years old, however, since it appeared in academic writing back in 2008 when M. K. Asante wrote, “The artivist merges commitment to freedom and justice with the pen, the lens, the brush, the voice, the body, and the…

Innovative storytellers discuss the changing ways we create and consume media in the 21st century.

First-Person in Gaming is Only Game in Town

March 16, 2018

Let’s talk about a real, serious and deadly issue afflicting millions of people around the world. I’m talking of course about the two types of people: those who experience something and those who witness others experience something. The same can be said for video game players: there are those who play in first-person shooter (FPS) mode and those who play in third-person shooter (TPS) mode.

Mentors Help Women Open Doors at Dell, in the Community

March 14, 2018

When Shayla Reed started working as a contractor in Talent Acquisition at Dell, she immediately knew she wanted to do more, learn more and grow in a cutting-edge company. She had just earned her Master’s in Human Resources and was ready for her next big challenge. “I had the opportunity to have a mentor,” Reed said. “That mentorship provided me the ability to learn more about what other opportunities were available, including IT project management. I felt like that would…

Innovators Use Virtual Reality to Improve Our World

March 13, 2018

Walking around SXSW (and a lot of walking that is, let me tell you), you can’t go five minutes without seeing some sort of virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) installation. Our own #DellExperience has no fewer than three different VR or mixed reality experiences event attendees can check out. It’s not necessarily the hot new, break-out thing that everyone hopes to find at this annual mix of industry conferences, trade shows and festivals, though. VR’s been here for…

My First Two Months at Dell EMC

Four months ago I started working as a graduate at one of the most important technology companies of the market and I am so glad of being part of the team of Dell EMC Spain. Due to some work experience and some studies, I realized how important the technology is and how it is changing our ways of life, and I started to have interest about the movement of data that is generated nowadays and how it is managed, so…

SXSW: Meet us at a Celebration of Entrepreneurs

March 8, 2018

Every year, I look forward to South By Southwest (SXSW), Austin’s annual music/film/interactive/comedy festival. Not just because it’s in my backyard of Austin, Tx. Not just because Dell puts on a fabulous week-long activation called the “Dell Experience.” I look forward to it because SXSW attracts the best of the best in terms of entrepreneurial spirit. The likes of Twitter and Foursquare chose SXSW to launch themselves onto the world. And for good reason. The energy at SXSW is unparalleled…

#PressForProgress, Inclusion Is How We Get There

Today women and men around the world will celebrate women’s social, economic, cultural and political achievements in recognition of International Women’s Day.  This year has been a year of firsts–we’ve seen a record number of women running for office in the United States, London’s Metropolitan Police Service named its first female police commissioner in the organization’s 188-year history and Serbia elected its first female prime minister. It’s also been a year where diversity has dominated the headlines and movements like #metoo…

NAFTA Should Be Strengthened, Not Terminated

As NAFTA negotiations continue this week, it is important to remember the many benefits that free and open trade bring to the United States. In 2014, U.S. trade with Canada and Mexico supported over 12 million American jobs. The U.S. exported $604 billion in goods and services to Mexico and Canada in 2015 – a $375 billion increase since 1999. Unfortunately, these jobs and economic growth will all be put at risk if we withdraw from or significantly alter NAFTA.
