Nope, that doesn't work either.

PCWorld are running some weird proprietary crap on that server, that
seems to be preventing standards compliant browsers going straight to
the article page. You need to actually click on a link on that site
first, then paste the link in the URI box to get to the original article.

Anyway, yeah the whole DellIdeaStorm phenomenon has been quite a
roller-coaster ride, and it's actually looks like Dell might really be
going for it this time ... again ... maybe.
