Samsung is expanding like swallowing all the rivals. Chairman Mr.Lee's nickname is South Korea's number two behind the Korean president who is number one. Well, his company Samsung Electronics is already a global number one in electronics industry though. Survival of the fittest.. bloody.. so bloody..

March of times.. ! Inevitable result of trying to sell high value products to low income countries by dissipating technology When would Intel too have to close its Fabs ?

"Samsung Group revenues account for about 20 percent of South Korea's 1,200 trillion won annual GDP" If this is correct it is a stunning fact. A company with 350,000 employees accounts for 20% of GDP of a country with 50 million?

At least they are really focusing $$$ and manpower on that area instead of trying to do innovation on a shoestring budget or via skunk works projects. If successful the payoff is big.

Their early investment in LCD display market proved to be very wise, and I would think that they are also looking forward with OLED technology replacing LCD in the next few years. Having both product areas enables them to retain market share. While one is ramped up, the other can be ramped down.

Investment in the future is always good as long as the predicted future ends up being the actual one! OLED displays seems like a winner...

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.
