@dylan.xia, when you say very cool in China are you referring to profitability ? If you look at job openings in India, I am seeing there is lot of requirement for VLSI engineers but I am not sure if it means robust growth.

I totally agree with you, whatz the purprose of forecast which never works ? Forecasting has become just guessing business.
