Acer, Gateway and Packard Bell: The Perfect Storm…of Crap

When Acer announced that they were acquiring Gateway, I remember quipping to my officemates that “If they really wanted to scrape the bottom of the barrel, they should really buy out Packard Bell.”

Looks like I spoke too soon.

“The Perfect Storm” boat on the wave, featuring the Acer, Gateway and Packard Bell logos.

There is a silver lining to this: gathering them all into a single cesspool makes ’em easier to avoid.
