Why bother now! What a waste of engineering effort! I think it's obvious MIPS is now SLIPS.

I'll through in another good fit, maybe a better one: Intel.

Yep, this is a good boost for MIPS. Its architecture, though not wellknown for low power consumption, does have a number of good points as compared to ARM.

there was a mistake in this article: But as many as 80,000 of the half a billion apps in the Android online store run natively, targeting the ARM architecture. == should be "million", not "billion"

@Chanj: Yes, Google may be considering buying MIPS technology and it may be perfect match for them.

MIPS licensees already beat ARM in price, low-power and performance. Just look at Cavium Octeon.

Would Google buy MIPS to expand their portfolio of hardware business? What would be the benefit for Google to acquire MIPS?

It looks like it, yes. With ARM's economies of scale, it would take MIPS something spectacularly ingenious to rival them.

Totally agree. I think it's just a matter of time before they go away in their present form.
