HP Up, Dell Down

Hewlett-Packard may be horrible at corporate spying, but apparently it's pretty darn good at making PCs, or at least selling PCs. HP is now No. 1 in PC sales, bumping off Dell. I'm not sure how many folks decided not to buy from HP after the spying scandal, but I'm pretty confident that the battery-bursting-into-flames brouhaha cost Dell more business. The unsung hero was Apple, which boosted shipments some 30 percent and now has 6 percent of the market share!
