Not a good sign for the electronics industry. However, most growth these days is in smartphones, tablets and the LTE infrastructure roll out--places where Intel has no strong play.

Intel will start chopping next week. Could be another big time like 2006...

Song Chou I don't disagree with much of what you say BUT the phrase "exceptional strong iphone 5 sales which are looking to break all past records," seems premature. How do you know iPhone 5 will sell strongly? I do agree that it is unlikely to have a 20-nm processor inside and could be 45-nm, 32-nm or 28-nm.

Paul O. needs a new business model for Intel. No model works for 40 years without adjustment. It is easy to blame "macro environment" but that will not slow exceptional strong iphone 5 sales which are looking to break all past records. Intel's problem is the cost of new technologies just keeps going up while the new silicon technologies are offering much less market value in return. To put 3D 22nm finfet in production will cost a record ~$20B capex (~10B/year for 2 years) for little to no real product level improvement (sandy bridge is just as good as ivy bridge to nearly all users). Going forward intel needs to fund suppliers like ASML ($5B check already) to develop technologies plus even higher capex. There much be a better way to send ~$25B to get a better ROI in market.

IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
