Well, getting rid of the bean counter as CEO is a good thing strategically, although I'm guessing having him there was good for short term profits. I saw a quote recently, "An economist knows the price of everything but value of nothing." While both extremes of that statement are, I'm sure, a gross exageration, it does point out the focus that a CEO can have. I don't think anyone would call Jobs an economist...

The photo is at least fairly recent (within the past few years) as near as I can tell. You can take a look at the official photo on the AMD website. http://www.amd.com/us/aboutamd/corporate-information/executives/Pages/rory-read.aspx I agree with you. He looks a lot younger than 49. More power to him.

Read will have to learn many new things and we wish he come at par and produce results very fast. He may also have to align with other big player like Apple or Google.

The recent trend that i have seen with the new hired CEOs is that they go back to doing what they were doing before joining. Nokia, Canon, HP are some examples.

Is that an up to date picture? He looks like he is in his twenties, not 49. I guess he can help AMD to not look so old.
