A happy retirement to Sean. But in general US companies have a fatal weakness for falling for the slippery tongue of Brits / Ozzies, even uneducated ones, who tend to then drag even perfectly good US Tech Companies down. The examples are endless.

@chipmonk- I don't doubt that there are some examples, but that sounds like a broad generalization. I certainly don't know of anyone who has said this about Sean Maloney.

For a college drop out, Sean had an impressive career. Only blemish on Sean's career is lack of success in intel's mobile communications efforts a group he ran for many years. Intel/Sean focused too much on mobile CPU performance but in reality.....CPU is only a small part of an SOC. Grapic and communications and many other IP block arround the SOC are perhaps more important to the user experience than CPU. The blind focus on CPU performance (still going on now with the Razor "2Ghz CPU announcement yesterday) is my guess why such a great company like intel with all it's resources continues to fail in the mobile SOC market. They keep making decision after decision on what is best for CPU performance which often has negative implications on SOCs

I think this should be the result of ignorance of general stock holders and the board they elected. politicians works better here.

Their senior folks only played the CPU game for decades until they reached the age they can no longer expand into other areas, since they no longer have learning energy. Quite sad actually.
