The Thailand floods have had a disruption of 6-months in the supply chain ecosystem. But as with many electronic hardware companies in the aftermath of Japan's earthquake this year, second-sourcing in different geographical locations became more important than before. It surprises me if Intel did not factor this in business upheavals. MP Divakar

it looks like Intel is hiding the real reason behing the hdd shortage. it's no secret that Intel is lagging far behind the hottest trends, mobile & ipad devices. the pc market is evolving very fast to non intel-microsoft solutions. wakeup intel before it's too late

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
