Beleaguered Gateway closing stores, reducing work force

I figured it was high time that a computer manufacturer other than Apple had the word “beleaguered” in a headline or story about them. According to a c|net story, Gateway is closing 76 stores and laying off 17 percent of its work force. If this were Apple, stories and editorials on the company’s imminent demise would be rampant.
Maybe if Ted Waitt stopped talking to cows, people would take his company more seriously.
