Harvard? In case these trends are not obvious outside the US, the supposedly premier Ivy League schools have been changing their image in the not-so-recent past. You can find a lot of info on this online.
The acceptance criteria are now heavily weighted to foreign students -- those whose governments pay the fees in full that is -- and disadvantaged students from within the US. Don't take my word for it. Look it up yourselves. I wouldn't be surprised if their reputation will be affected by these trends, in due course. Certainly my own perception has been.
The other side of the coin is that even "low-ranked" universities produce top-notch students, as far as I've been able to witness. College degrees are never trivial to obtain, especially in difficult majors.
Let's see, most of the big smartphone companies use version of ARM with some customization, I cannot imagine even one of them to switch to Intel processor.
The echo system of the Arm is well established and the advantages are such a barrier that Intel new Ceo should rethink of better idea
wow, i bet lot's of angry academic losers here.
one reason why losers love engineering or have to go to engineering is there is no need for board test to get a engineer license.
cheap and easy entrance, work up the ladder through everything you can imagine.
world is flat again.
We know nothing of the personal circumstances that made him go to SJSU. There are serious studies which demonstrate unambiguously that the achievement of ambitious students is interdependent of their educational pedigree. I forget the name of the authors, but the study compared students who were admitted and attended an Ivy League school to those that were admitted but chose not to attend for whatever reason. The statistically rigorous conclusion? The economic value added of an Ivy League education is near zero, unless you are a minority student from a disadvantaged background.
Regardless of whatever the circumstances were, does anyone seriously think that it matters? Management skills are quite orthogonal to technical skills. If there is one thing to worry about is that in the past BK has demonstrated scant evidence of vision. Is he another Barret - all execution, even if the goal is to pump out sh*t at a record pace?
The new CEO had to make a presentation to the Intel board about what he would do to get the job. So it's not so fast to be doing a re-org given he didn't have to do anything to get oriented in the not-new company.
What we have NOT seen yet is any solid indication of how he is going to speed up Intel's slooow traction in mobile. Appointing Mike Bell to a new mobile group means nothing to me. Mike Bell was heading up Intel's mobile business previously.
The significant shoes have yet to fall.
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.
