Dell Pulls a Lenovo in Superfish-esque Certificate

You know, I really root (pun intended) for the third party Windows OEMs. With high end ventures such as Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book and low end ventures such as Surface 3, one has to wonder where the place of the third party OEM is. Sure, there’s the super low end. There’s even some really great mid-ranges and high end PCs. The bottom line is that third party OEMs are essential to the market…
