    Talking Explosive Dell ad

    OK, maybe it's just me but if anybody has heard about the Dell laptop battery recall due to them exploding, you may find this ad funny. This is a direct screenshot of an ad that was on MSNBC.com tonight for Dell. I think maybe the marketing department didn't hear they were recalling 4.1million laptop batteries...

    Was this an actual ad or was it an ad that somebody photoshoped as a joke. I've actually got one of the dell batteries that had to be recalled. It doesn't affect me too much though, seeing as I always use the power cord. I'll get another battery in a few days I'm hoping.

    It's the actual ad that I took a screenshot of on MSNBC. The ad is still there as of this morning.

    Give it some time and that issue might resolve itself and provide you with a lovely pyrotechnic display. I see this as win-win.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    As a employee of a dell competitor, I find this very very funny. Jeremy, do you have the full screen shot of the MSNBC page with the ad? I've been refreshing the MSNBC front page but haven't got it to come up today.
