And here was Michael Dell's backhanded comment about HP deciding to stop selling PCs, less than 6 months ago, due to falling demand and low profit margins:

Goodbye HP, Sorry you don’t want to be in PCs anymore..But we do more than ever. How would you say goodbye to HP?

How would you say goodbye to Dell?
