The growth shows some strength in the industry.  Good to see in these times.

TSMC is quick to dampen the mood by posting such modest expectations for Q1 on the heels of such impressive results for last year's Q4. I wonder how accurate of a prediction that is, and how much the company stands to gain from such reduced expectations.

The industry is rocking in the last few quarters. Mobile is driving the whole industry up. This was what we expected the green tech to do. It is now coming in mobile. Hope it keeps going.

It is truly a mixed bag. Mid range mobile is booming (thanks to demand from emerging markets) but other sectors which rely more heavily on demand from developed countries are suffering. The IC industry does operate in isolation from the wider economy.

I wonder how long emerging markets can really drive this space and when fully-industrialized countries have to once again take charge of the worldwide economy...after all they do have the advantage in terms of greater manufacturing capabilities and elaborate services as well.

Hmmm, I do not think the developed industrialised countries arein charge of the world economy, well not they used too anyway.  There is a seismic shift in wealth and power taking place from west to east, and north to south. We ignore that at our peril....

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
