Dell inspired - Chip on the shoulder

Apr 28, 2018

3 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Transform the persona of information technology. Give the IT services industry shoulder pads! Some scientist, techies, engineers, and mathematicians drink Red Bull too! Many IT organizations could use some competitive (trash) talk to get the juices flowing a bit. Really go after Cisco and others (Facebook) in the battle to improve cybersecurity and user privacy, through continuous exploration of new technology (i.e. quantum computing). I’m no expert but at the end of the day industry leaders are in battle, correct? Be the actively working change people want to see. This may mean rolling up your sleeves and showing a bit of muscle, or lack thereof, even if the technology is not within complete grasps or cost efficient at this time. Start by bumping the “Security” menu option under the Products & Services drop down to the top of the list on the Dell homepage. Current events show government agencies leading the charge to address concerns of cybersecurity and user protection. This should not be the case. Dell can be one of the world’s most ethical companies, with a chip on its shoulder, or not.

Dell xps 15 refresh

Sep 22, 2017

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

It would be nice to see some of the following things in the next dell xps refresh. Because of these reasons I haven't bought one yet/waiting for refresh. I am a student and I'm only at home in the weekends so I am looking for a nice laptop. I know the dell xps can handle all these things but still it would be great to see these things change. - full speed thunderbolt connection- maybe a maxq gtx 1060 as the power is only 60 watt instead of 50 with the 1050 (don't know if this is actually possible but it would be very nice)- coffee lake cpu- 1 tb ssd option (only 500 gb available where I am from)- maybe option for other colors (not so important)- charging via usb/c thunderbolt and more of these ports would be nice aswell- reaction time for screen a little lower, I think it is about 20 ms which is very high not sure if it actually makes a big impactThese are the things I would like to see. Tell me what you think about it and what you would like to see on the next refresh.

Dell-AR Innovation

May 31, 2016

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Augmented reality is current in "beta" phase as far as technology and application goes.  A lot of groundwork has been done by Microsoft and Google with the Holo-lens and Glass respectively.  I propose that dell takes advantage of the existing interest of AR technologies, and expands them into large scale environments. Some of the environments that would be good to see are Zoos, Aquariums and Planetariums where instead of just seeing a docile elephant in a pen, or a limited number of small fish in bowls, and immersive experience where one can stand inches away from a life size Gorilla or Lion.  Or enter into a massive water tank and "swim" with life size whales, sharks, and creatures iof the deep that cannot be housed in current aquariums due to varius circumstances (enviornmental/habitat restrictions etc.)  The educational applications are limitless, and if the technologies are implimented into a self contained environment, can lead to an ever changing experience for end users.  Every week/month a new "exhibit" could be launched to bring back patrons, leading to a year round income source with drastically reduced overhead expenses vs traditional zoos/aquariums.  Other applications include, but are not limited to: AR-Gaming, AR-Educational programs, AR-Enterprise support applications, AR-client support applications.

Include MAC address on package labels

Mar 31, 2016

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

It would be nice to include the MAC address on the same label with the Service Tag information.  It would be great to have a barcode for the MAC address without any colons.  We need to add the MAC address of each device to Active Directory for wireless network authentication.  We also include the device MAC address in our inventory database.Other options would be to add a barcode label on the device with the MAC address or allow us to download the Service Tag and MAC address information from the Dell Premier website.

Pre-installed Linux must play commercial DVDs

May 3, 2007

505 Votes

Status: Partially Implemented

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 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.
