I have worked on an assembly line before and even if you are building super awesome computers, the monotonous repetition can leave you without feeling for the product your building. I suggest letting the customer have the ability to Tip or leave a small gratuity to the line worker or workers responsible. This would bring positive emotions towards the customer and would show we are grateful for the product supplied. It could also promote better quality control, and a sense of accomplishment. Also I would like to see a photo, info or signature of the person or persons responsible for building the order. A personal touch is what's needed in this frigid zeitgeist we currently live in. Caring and respect for one another regardless of race, nationality or job title will advance our species into the new age. ~Sean 1 Posted Monday, January 7th, 2013 Alienware arena.
I sometimes come up with good Ideas but I can not make a good suggestion out of it, I need more details on how to do itI think it is good to put some practical and useful training lessons and tips on IdeaStorm web page about Ideation and creativity related to Dell products
I think Dell needs to include tablets as an option for students (and military). In our rapid advancement in technology, you see more and more students at universities using tablets for their school work. It is simple, tablets are lighter and easier to carry than most laptops and just as functional for the needs of college students. They are great for storing and accessing the wide variety of articles and books which students often are required to refer to. Just as many military members could use a tablet for referencing the various regulations of their branch of service. Overall, I believe if Dell would offer a tablet to the student/military community, that they would (or should) see an increase in sales.
how about selling laptops/desktops in easy instalments to the office workers/students of developing/poor nations.For Example, I can pay only Pak.Rupees 2000/- per month for 2 laptops through my bank account after reasonable/acceptable guarantee from my office. Thus increasing sale with increasing popularity!
My idea is to have Austin youth (12-18 yrs. of age) showcase their own accomplishments in a Workshop Track called Current-See, and show the adults in attendance how it's done with Dell! Sessions could include a myriad of topics, including how youth are using social to crowdfund a project, develop and deliver a digital campaign, or gamifiy a homework assigment. A youth panel with interactive Q&A with adults regarding the importance of earning and exchanging digital currency across various platfroms and channels would comprise the final session of workshops. I beleive that youth, specially today, can offer a powerful voice to IdeaStorm!
You probably know this, but a "show stopper" requirement for most consumers and many educators and business road warriers is having laptops and desktops that can play commmercial DVDs. I have a hunch that preinstalled Linux on Dell machines will be a terrific success if Dell Linux desktops and laptops have this capability. I've been told that http://www.videolan.org/ has one possible approach. Having Linux playing commercial DVDs may also catapult Dell into the complex Digital Rights Management contoversy so it would be wise to get Dell's legal staff involved ASAP and also have this discussed this at the highest strategic management levels at Dell (if this is not already being done). Status Update Check out the Ideas in Action post from Daniel Judd. And you can also check out this follow-up post from John Hull who leads our engineering efforts behind Linux on consumer systems.
