Absolutely Bill. So called Tech Journalist, like here Rick, think ARM is a panacea and guys at MIPS/Intel/AMD dont know squat about power efficient design. If the market needs it, they will put one out. They think putting the engine of a Smart Car (ARM) into my BMW 7-series (PPC/x86) will cause market revolution, just because Smart car has 40MPG, while 7-series got 22MPG, even though the engine may barely move the care from my driveway. Guys like Rick, should think before asking such technically immature questions.

Great comment. As much as I do love my iPad, I use it for very different things than my desktop PC, and one is not a replacement for the other. Good catch phrase, "distributed consumption era." Perhaps this is another way of saying we all need multiple computers, but each of them has a very different form factor and usage model than the others.

help.ful.guy you are so right on! Everybody is talking about the post-PC era because Jobs says it is so - that's bunk. We are living in the "distributed consumption era". The needs for content creation and consumption are quite different and drive a world that is far too complex to boil down into a Jobsian sound byte. There's a place for PC's, smart phones, tablets, notebooks/ultrabooks and more, just like there are a wide variety of automotive vehicles with different mileage requirements, carrying capacities, comfort levels, discretionary acceleration levels. We are living in the era of ubiquitous computing and thank goodness if you earn a living in tech!

Hey Rick, I hate my celeron for lack of performance and you are thinking of sticking in an ARM processor? God bless you! ARM is a decade behind everyone --Power PC, MIPS & x86. I am not sure why people are infatuated with ARM. I agreen on the lower power on ARM, but, when I need performance, I need it! Period! I know you "LOVE" Intel. I think you need to spread it on ARM too. May be they will wake up and put out a higher performance processor.

Can Intel maintain its franchise in notebooks, or will ARM muscle its way in with tablets and Windows 8?

Intel is scratching and clawing to remain on the top as the PC evolves.

isn't the black beret a bit too black-turtleneck-inspired?

Mooly loves to play to the crowd and the gadget-crazed IDF press corps eats it up .

Like to see technology be like Britney spears. Is that Japan or America? Never sure I have seen people like techs like that.

Shouldn't that be geekarazzi in the caption?
