Applied's PR machine can't find anything else to blame. Interesting that LAM's forecast lacks the doom & gloom. Could the difference be in technology or their sales teams ?

More blame on macroeconomic doom and gloom, but at least Applied expects sales to improve after this quarter. Interesting that foundry vendors--who earlier this year were keeping Applied and other tool makers on target--are blamed for slowing down orders. But CEO Mike Splinter said he expects foundries to led the way back by improving orders by the end of the calendar year.
