The trend is fairly clear.
R Noyce is the bill gates of Intel who foresight the 40 years of prosperity of intel.
His little bro A Grove isn't bad but lacks the vision and courage to pull in more talents.
And now, A. Grove's assistant and sales man S. Maloney has made into the chairman position. Another salesman Otellini is the CEO.
Do these salesman really understand tech? such as if intel should stick with x86 structure or come up with a new one?
Intel 's failure in past several years to deliver a real mobile solution maybe is just a good reflection of this situation.
It must be hard for a MBA salesman to decide how to lower the power consumption of a CPU.
How long intel can last with such kind of failures? uh.. maybe depend on how fast the market ll shift. when ARM windows getting more mature it won't take 2 long, check Kodak or Xerox as example.
Another thing is the board of Intel is filled up with some jokes , maybe same as HP.
Headed by a female pham veteran and group of everything but scientist. How can they pull intel into the right track in such a complicate and fast changing world?
