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

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,

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.

"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.

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!

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.

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

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
