Actually neither way around ...

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- June 4, 1996 -- Packard Bell and NEC announced
     today that they have concluded a memorandum of understanding in which NEC's
     worldwide personal computer operations outside of Japan will merge into
Packard
     Bell.

NEC only gave up international pc operations, small part of nec.  Notice at
www.nec.com there is no mention of packard bell where at www.packardbell.com
there is no mention of packard bell without the nec suffix.

Sure glad I'm on a box from rochester than either one of these companies.
Oh yea my pc of choice is a Dell.
