Impressive "bluff"

NO RATINGS
Not many companies could throw around such a negotiations tool as a $125 million check. One interesting aspect is that, while Intel obviously reaped great rewards for the "Intel inside" program, I think it did a lot to make AMD a household name too.

I agree doc divakar on both counts...standing meetings are great, never last more than 30 mins in my experience...and Intel need to get "outside", "inside" was nice while it lasted but they probably need to start building more integrated products going forward...Kris

I couldn't agree more with "Hold fewer, shorter, smaller meetings." Standing only meetings are even better. I have often come across managers who use meetings to do their thinking by others that they should have done by themselves in the first place!

"Intel Inside" was successful while it lasted. Now a days, it is a survival challenge for that message! Intel still doesn't play significantly in handheld computing market. I wonder what Mr. Dave House would do in today's state of the computing market.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
