this is a good article but you lose major cred when you try to imply what jobs is saying from his D8 comment. specifically - he is not implying they made a bunch of processors et al and the A4 is the best one of the bunch. he's simply stating Apple has a history dating for 2 decades of doing some chip design. bridge chips etc. the fact that you don't know that and try to read into his comment shows a massive lack of knowledge.

Interesting article but there is a lot of history behind it. I believe the true origin of the Samsung relationship stretches back to David Tupman's days at Psion when Parthus helped Psion to design the Halla ARM920T based Apps processor on the Samsung process. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/06/26/psion_special/

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
