A random observation..

..but doesn't Dell sound a lot like the mandarin equivalent of the profane cantonese expression "diu"? And, after you buy their stuff, they'll request that you take their customer satisfaction survey, conducted by a firm called TNS, which is very short form for tiuniasing if you ask me :D

Don't get me wrong though, I've had nothing but positive experiences with the brand all these years. And speaking of diu, that reminds me of an uncle I saw at PC Fair on Sunday, he was wearing a cap; possibly made in China or made to look like it, khaki coloured and has, in red embroidery the chinese characters "diu na (star symbol)". Nice cap, I have a feeling Duncan would like one very much :)
