Vladimir Putin lays the smack down on Michael Dell

Computers, Weirdness

dell-vs-putin.jpgFile this one under “lol”. Last night at the World Economic Forum on Davos, Switzerland, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin gave a 40 minute keynote speech about a variety of topics. In the ‘questions’ section afterwards, Dell chairman Michael Dell said nice things about Russia’s scientific prowess, and then asked how his company could help Russia expand its IT infrastructure.

Putin’s response?

“We don’t need your help. We are not invalids. We don’t have limited mental capacity.”

Ouch. Video over the jump, the smackdown begins right at the start.
