1 thing i agree is the current board structure is flawed.
the shareholders are a group of nonsense ppl who chase after fortune only, nearsight and timid.
(those who invest in intel are definitely timid ones)
Well, my number is still unlisted and confidential but if you don't mind, let's meet at the 'Walker's Wagon Wheel' to discuss some serious business, one without any of the Wall Street bull s..t . Remember the place of real innovations and business plans, created and sketched on napkins by true leaders in the past? Oops...I just remember the place is history now, wrecked and demolished as many Silicon Valley companies have been since, companies that were, to my knowledge, created there in the 1960-70's'. I've frequented the 'watering hole' in the 70's after a day of hard work and must have rubbed shoulders with many of the Silicon Valley pioneers, the modest and unpretentious creators of the Silicon Valley at that time.
sprite0022: I'm willing to participate in some due diligence search and selection process at no charge. Who needs any of these high level executive search firms and consultants, the ones that placed too many company crashers in the past.
You regrettably omitted to name any of the corporate 'gnomes' (the board members), the mastermind and fashioners of corporations failures. Who else? It's utmost time that the board of directors of all public corporations must consist of and include at least 25%++ lower level employees/workers, a principle implemented and practiced to my knowledge by some very successful German companies. Hello!
I am referring "Licensing ARM cores" as every one else and build a chip with Intel frame work for mobile platform. I hope it may not get into legal issues. After all ARM is a IP company any one can lic it's IP.
I'm available and would consider to take on the challenge to shake up and wake up Intel. I have no degree or any collection of them from renowned Universities but I certainly have more common sense and vision than many 'famous' and highly regarded CEO's that ruined corporations on their way to the top and fame. Do I have to list some names?
Really? See HP the good old Hewlett Packard for you today.! Intel's obsession and actions against AMD's competition threats may have just caught up with them. To big to fail? Well... DEC, Motorola, Sun, Fairchild Semi, and many others in the past and just possibly some big ones following the trend, once you consider the bestowing and hand over of proprietary design, process and manufacturing technology to 'offshore' foreign companies in the name of 'cost savings', more like much higher profits for the companies for the time being.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
