mark, don't get so self centered/selfish/narrowminded. A company benifits society by taxes/jobs/profits... It earned I guess 30%+ revenue from chinese market. It 's just common sense to leave some benefit to local people as well. Japanese is even more civilized than you. look at toyota/nissan's us factories, what kind of global spirit in that.

Good point. Hey Intel: I thought you wanted to create jobs in the U.S. Sure, you announced new and upgraded fabs in the U.S. Great. Why not do more?

After his speech about US needing more incentive to build fabs, the inauguration of the Chinese fab angers many. There may be a boycott of Atom chips.

I am very frustrated to see that you think it this way.Why will China forbidde the chip shipment?It's a developing country that needs high technology, and we all know that convinent contact between countries is necessary.Do not be hostile to China!

45 nm HKMG could be banned in China. 65 nm has no high volume product. The fab doesn't make sense to continue unless Intel starts a 45 nm line there with or w/o HKMG.

Intel has a huge trade surplus with China. (It's one of the few U.S. that does.) To keep in good graces with the Chinese government, Intel (and other multinationals) must pay a cover charge to do business in China. In Intel's case, it's a 300-mm fab. A good business decision. Or was it? More comments?

I do not know why Intel is planning to build new fab now in USA instead of Taiwan or China. Has US become a cheaper destination post recession? Or Intel has pressure from government to keep jobs at home. In either way an investment of 6-8 Billion will not be a single party investment just because its too huge an amount and with limited benefits.

What a thought? I wonder how you reached this conclusion "Chinese will steal the technology and Intel will loose its competitive advantage" and not that Intel will rob Chinese of their money by selling at a higher price what they produce at first place.

Is there a major fabricator of silicon products who does not have a fab in Taiwan or China (or who is not trying to ink such an arrangement)?

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
