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.

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

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?
