LAS VEGAS -- Dell Technologies World -- The four-legged attendees were the most popular warm-blooded animals at Dell's annual customer and partner event this week. Dell brought in therapy dogs for stressed-out attendees to pet, give treats to and get their pictures taken with. This should become a tradition at every tech conference everywhere.

The conference also featured fancy toys, games and advice on how to make a professional appearance on social media.
