IBM Corp., the world's No. 2 PC marketer, is pulling out of Ziff-Davis' Comdex shows effective next year. This follows the earlier departure of No. 1 Compaq Computer Corp. and No. 3 Dell Computer Corp. from the show floor of Comdex/Fall, the nation's biggest computer show. IBM said the frenetic show is "not necessarily the best way" to get across its complex story of selling customer "solutions."
