OK, with the benefit of hindsight, I can now sound like a great Pundit! Within two weeks after this article, Intel bought Fulcrum and MicroSemi bought ASIC Advantage... just to prove EE Times wrong!! Or so me thinks! I like to look at acquisitions as a healthy trend and renewed confidence in the economy. I am hoping for one myself in the startup I am in! MP Divakar

That simply shows that the bubble is near. That is what it is all about. We are close to a bubble and the recycle continues

@chanj Acquisitions -- Consolidation happens -- Job Loss. IPO--More money with startups--New jobs created(at least temporarily)

I dont think its because of concerns over Global economic, its more to do with the fact that more and more people want to invest in technology stocks, there are already concerns if this is beginning of new tech-bubble
