Re: Tearing Up a $125M Check to Big Blue

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.

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

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.

When the Genuine Intel inside campaign had started, I remember visiting an Intel competitor in Silicon Valley.  All the gals had on this interesting tee shirt and it looked just like the Intel add except it said "Genuine Attitude Inside"  I liked. that.

If Intel was clever they'd build on that.  "We used to be Intel Inside - inside your PC.  Now we're Intel Outside - outside the PC, in your Phones and Tablets. "

"I said, 'that's Jap-lish,'" House said. "I pulled out stationary that said 'Intel, the computer inside,' I wrote 'Intel Inside' and put a circle around it and said that's better," he said.

 

 

I think he pulled out stationEry unless he pulled out something which wasn't moving

Design game changer

From a design engineers perspective"intel inside" was a game changer. In put the user/consumer in the design chain. Up until that time design engineers were able to go away and make all the decisions with respect to the components they would use to achieve the required function. From "AD-intel inside" somebody outside the design chain was involved in determining component selection, imposing a new design constraint. Perhaps a closer to home and different view of "branding to consumers".

"Intel Inside" was indeed one of the most powerful marketing messages of its time.

Good article, Rick.  Makes you want to have a long conversation with Mr. House.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
