Wooden Computers (and Iron Handguns)

, ,

Cool! Now I can finally get myself a PC cased in Goncalo Alves matching the Hogue grips on my Model 29 S&W .44 Mag.

Hmmm. The only problem is: these Suissa boxes are not cheap.

Dell Laptop Explodes?

, , , ,

The Inquirer, a UK tech site, has a very alarming photo of a Dell notebook PC allegedly exploding at a conference in Japan.

AN INQUIRER READER attending a conference in Japan was sat just feet away from a laptop computer that suddenly exploded into flames, in what could have been a deadly accident.

Gaston, our astonished reader reports: “The damn thing was on fire and produced several explosions for more than five minutes”.

This story is suspiciously lacking in factual detail, but the Inquirer really does looks like a legitimate tech news and humor source. If they faked this photo, or misidentified the notebook’s brand, I would expect that Dell could, and would, sue the pants off them.

I looked at Dell’s Press Releases, and found nothing so far. It may be worth checking back later.
