oops. it would be interesting if someone in the EE press would talk to people about how TI has gone aobut thinning the herd in the last couple years. And I mean those who get "thinned" and those who worked with them - not the executives.

Dylan, If Lowe is anything, he is a gentleman. He would not publicly say anything bad about TI. It would be interesting for someone in the EE press. In my experience, and that of many of my former colleagues there, integrity, openness and team enviroment are values that they dumped a couple years ago. BTW, his first name is spelled Gregg, not Greg.

Lowe went to great lengths to avoid commenting on TI for the most part. He was asked several times to compare or contrast the two companies. Most of the time he started by reframing the question to focus only on Freescale. He didn't want to talk much about TI, as you would expect. Once, though, he did discuss the values that he saw at Freescale and those at TI, which he said were very similar. "They are both great companies," he said.

"...said he was drawn to the Freescale job by what he saw as values that he shared—integrity, openness, a team environment..." Could this be a dig at TI for lacking these values? Ask anyone from TI who has left in the past couple years and anyone still there who is not afraid to speak the truth.

As an ex-TI analog person, I suspect Lowe can turn this ship around.

"I feel like I have all of my organs in the game at this point." Geez, that's a good quote.

Lowe made it pretty clear that Freescale won't be slashing its margins to gain share. He feels that the company's technology and products warrant a stronger position.

Is gaining market share the best direction to Freescale? Gaining market share is always the goal of TI however. So, I wonder if Freescale is on the right track if they just want to copy the business model of TI? I believe it is not easy to success as gaining market share usually means loss of profit margin. With such high debt, is this strategy still attractive to investor?

All the best to Greg. Hope to see more positive numbers from Freescale.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
