I was surprised by the drop in the capex forecast. With all Intel has going, I think a lot of people hoped it would hold steady or go the other way. It's a big blow to the equipment industry that Intel is taking $1 billion off the table.

Remarkably, Intel shares have been in the same trading range (give or take $5) since the recession began. They're now back at 2009 levels, in the middle of that range. That's dead money for investors and the challenges facing the company are widely known. Still, one has to look at the broader tech sector to gain a full appreciation for that is happening.  Here's a tweet this afternoon from Trish Regan over at It's a good question she asks:

Earnings misses from $GOOG + $MSFT... on the heels of misses at
$INTC, $IBM, + $EBAY. What's going on in tech ?

"fast growing ultra-mobile market segment": I see the statistics on the growing mobile/tablet market all the time. But, it is becoming very evident in my highly techie family. Both parents have moved exclusively to laptops/smartphones and both teenagers are using tablets. The desktop workhorses in our home/office seem to only be used for gaming now...The importance of this market really can no longer be ignored.

It is interesting to hear CEO Brian Krzanich say that Intel will leave no computing stone unturned and plans to be the best in ultra-mobile computing.

It's probably going to take a while before it shows up in Intel's numbers.

Also interesting to note the drop in capex forecast. I would luv to know what Intel's manufacturiing capacity utilization is like at present.

zero sum game
eewiz   7/18/2013 1:34:30 PM
It looks like, its kind of a zero sum game for Intel... If intel wins the 30$ mobile CPU race by competing with ARM in speed, it will lose its 300$ notebook/desktop CPU business  as people will have no/less reason to buy a notebook, which makes much higher margins for Intel.

Intel's best option is to compete with ARM only in power consumption, by keeping its mobile CPU performance at the same level as of ARM's topline. Thisway if the competition becomes mostly about power consumption, then there will be a safe gap between performance of a mobile device and notebook that people will still feel the need for a more powerful notebook/desktop.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
