puddingebola writes: Dell Inc. is in buyout talks with private equity firms. From the story, "Dell is discussing going private with at least two firms, said one of the people, who declined to be identified because the talks are private. The discussions are preliminary and could fall apart because the firms may not be able to line up the needed financing or resolve how to exit the investment in the future, the people said."
"Call immediately. Time is running out. We both need to do something
monstrous before we die."
