I would not count Intel out. They have fought off competitive threats before and won. They have a ton of cash, some of the best engineering talent and great process technology. They feel severely threatened and they will be very focused on fixing this. It will be an exciting next few years.
I meant just what I said - a true consumer electronics device is not an open device. Notice you changed my words in deleting the word 'electronics' in the phrase 'consumer electronics'. Your router is open - what do you mean by that? How is your Droid phone open?
Next 24 months? is it too slow and late? I will have my iPad4 or iphone 6 by that time. 4-5 generation behind on product definition..... This is really bad. At least 2 generation process technology lead as compared to the whole foundries' offering, it still can't beat others' product offering. Intel should really think seriously what's wrong on its own product roadmap or overall strategy.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
