What a complete non sequitur of an article. Obama and the NY fab are completed unrelated topics except for the fact he is visiting the complex campaigning. Why would you cover Obama's campaign in a publication that is supposed to be dedicated to EE?

Because when national politics intersect with semiconductor manufacturing, it is relevant to EE - regardless of who the political subject is.

No, first guy is right. Just political photoOP. Bad for EETimes coverage. Someone remind me again what great things have come out of this mythical "Valley" in NY? And what happened to that stupid "Alley" they had? IBM has been somewhere up there forever. Yes, good. But. I'm guessing there have been lots of construction jobs pouring concrete for buildings and maybe a fab or two. Where's the Hi Tech? Those AMATs, KLAs, and Tokyo Electrons will move their storefronts if there's not real long-term business. How many other cities has this happened in? This is just politicians spending our money, and now posing for the picture.

Last time I checked IBM was paying the lion share of the Nano-Complex, billions of $$. But IBM is not mentioned with a single word, hmmm...

Indeed. It would be irresponsible of EE Times to NOT report on the fact that the President of the United States is visiting a technology center and is being hosted by a major semiconductor foundry.

The way you show that you are behind an industry is to cut corporate taxes, reduce regulations, cut the stanglehold of unions and open up work visas, not take a picture; thats just politics, thus the negative feedback on the article.

I'm afraid that politics will always play a role in our industry. We may not like the players nor their policies but we can't ignore their role. Hence the coverage. Research in semiconductor technologies and processes cannot be done in a vacuum, and must have be cooperative. For that to succeed government, industry and academia must work together, as they have always done from the industrial days to today. A debate among two presidential candidates on government industrial policies is in order.

I think this is news. This is what we expect to read from EETIMES because Techcrunh, Mashable will not report because it is not web or apps. I do not see anything wrong in this report. This is America and we need to take politics out of this.

Where is your link? Maybe you can link us where IBM has claimed they are investing in this.

Hope this one will work for Obama and America. People need these jobs to be here in America. By funding this type of ventures, we can expect America to be back.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
