@stuart21- what exactly are you saying? They sent confidential information about your invention to your competitor? What "communications" are you referring to?

INVENTORS - DO NOT TRUST INTEL I invented a CPU cooler - 3 times better than best - better than water. Intel have major CPU cooling problems - "Intel's microprocessors were generating so much heat that they were melting" (iht.com) - try to talk to them - they send my communications to my competitor & will not talk to me. Winners of major 'Corporate Social Responsibility' awardS!!! Huh!!!! When did RICO get repealed?" INVENTORS - DO NOT TRUST INTEL!!! BTW, I have the evidence - my competitor gave it to me. BBTW, I am prepared to apologize to Intel if; • They can show that the actions were those of a single individual within the company, but acting outside corporate policy, and: • They gain redress on my behalf.

A first for Rick in crediting the McAfee purchase as an unqualified good move, at least I think he's never yet quite come out and said it. And regarding MeGo; Intel looks to have a system solution in mind... the software is in place and the hardware's arrival, to successfully compete at any point in the segment stack, looks to be on its way.

True, DSPs are a different kind of thing compared to low power devices. Have to remind you though that today’s DSPs have speculative execution and branch prediction. We all know the lamentable Intel journey in the DSP business even though ADI keeps on telling us it was a great experience...

That is it - they have the basics and can build upon that. The simple fact is that the PC world is dying

Yes, Intel has the cash reserves and are in a position to make an effort to grow out of the PC processor market. From the consumers point of view, it would be nice to have Intel competing in low-power mobile processor market. From Intel’s point of view, what motivates Intel to leave its strong-hold in CPU processors and move out of their comfort-zone? Why not focus its effort in trying to improve what Intel is already good at? (E.g., Revamping x86 architecture)?

Intel is trying to influence whole system development, including software. Silicon process is not foreground anymore, nor the CPU. So this is definitely outside their comfort zone.

All the people who constantly count out Intel have not learned from history. They have the tenacity come back and win as they proved time and again. I am not sure whether 10 years from now there will be ARM but there will be Intel.

Good article, Rick. But, as you point out, there are a lot of unanswered questions being covered up with a lot of hype. They have the cash, but do they have the will and the corporate culture to enable it.

This is very interesting. I have no idea why Intel would like to take this approach. But they do have the cash.

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.
