Totally agree that profits count and not marketshare. Why do these "analist" still focus on marketshare; just parroting? I do hope they understand the business that they analyse.

This is just the beginning not Q1 story...their market share will continue to slide for years to come...China is now the laregst economy in the world (according to the Economist) and tend to favour local suppliers, surprise, surprise...and support export to emerging markets in Africa etc...Apple and Samsung need to invent a new gadget that will be purchased by billions...Kris

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.
