Technology means loss of jobs? Let's go back to hand weaving, there will be jobs for everyone! I think that the problem here was TI's traditional position that DSP is the important part, and the general purpose CPU is just a control/management bag on the side. The Stellaris and MSP430 lines where they just do the standard SoC seem to be selling well.

This is what happens when there is vanilla designs based on ARM....no differentiation, means You Die. Period. Next one is Freescale, then Marvell, then broadcom, and on and on. ARM means loss of jobs. Send ARM back to UK. They can live with their Austerity over there

This comes as a surprise ? Not. When the attitude was to demand a virgin, cure for cancer, mobile account or first born - (take your pick from the multiple choice) before one could be "privileged" to work with OMAP - potential accounts were turned off. Stop begging the big wigs to work with you and support those that do.

Competitiveness is not the sole responsibility of a specific technology but should be ingrained as a corporate culture. A rare thing to be maintained over the life of an 'old' tech co. like Moto/TI. GE is one of the few cos. the exude this- but then again look what Jack Welch built!

"TI can't keep up with because it began phasing out its baseband technology years ago"... They shoot their feet, and now blame wounded feet to cut leg.. they may kill themselves oneday blaming not having leg.

APs are now low margin commodities, better to focus capital and resources om something that will return net margins. analog, mixed-signal, power management, custom embedded ARM with mixed signal and NV memory. Why stay in a market and drag down overall margins? Need to find markets where they can innovate and differentiate.

it's hard to imagine a marketing ppl with a business degree, ok maybe a mba, how can he guide a tech company to compete. I just watched another salesman turned coo's address, it's pretty much bullsh t. all he know is cost saving,

TI lost the fighting spirit. Instead of fighting in wireless, they stopped the development. Now they stop OMAP coz of wireless.
