Which bands make your Top 10? Squawk fans respond
Dude, you're getting a Dell
Actually, Michael Dell is getting a whole bunch of Dells now that he's back in charge and has taken the company private. He's one of the richest people in the U.S. and a true American success story. He came to "Squawk" this week to give us his vision for the company now that Carl Icahn is finally in his rearview mirror. Read about it here.

Joe and Becky continued their years-long Word Jumble grudge-match, but Becky has asked that the win-loss count be redacted this week. In the spirit of the "Hunger Games" (second movie "Catching Fire" out this weekend), "The odds were not in Becky's favor."
But here's a bonus word for each of them. Joe's word is COKUOC. Becky's word is IKKRCE. The answers are at the end of this blog (after all the band lists).

Sony says it sold more than 1 million PlayStations 4 video game consoles during the first 24 hours on the market. It's Sony's first hit since the Walkman (well, kind of). This week, Microsoft responded with the Xbox One. It could be Microsoft's first hit since Windows XP (again, kind of). We here on "Squawk Box" are hoping Atari's newest game console will be ready by the end of the year.
