We’re not talking about “supply chain innovations” either; they are sitting on a treasure trove of product innovations with massive potential.

Sigh. Voodoo are great, I'm not sure this is a good thing. They make wonderful computers, albeit at prices as high as £7,000 ($15,000est).

Be interesting to have VooDoo back in the game.

Yay. Yet more amalgamation.

Dell buys Alienware.
HP buys Voodoo.

What a battle! =O

I'm pretty sure 99% of you guys don't really care. I'd be a bit upset if Dell bought out ATI or NV! (Hate to see $400 video cards with crappy caps).
