DEC Sold to Compaq!

Well, you could see it coming. Poor financial performance (and hence, weak
stock price) over the last few years. Weak products. Then, DEC sells-out the
Crown Jewels (its Alpha procesor) to Intel.

    After listening to an interview with Eckhard Pfeiffer of Compaq, they
paid $9.6 billion for DEC's customer list, not its products. He mentions
nothing about DEC's products.

    It's a shame...but it seems to me that DEC should have seen it coming.
Death comes to the last of the old-line computer companies.
