Intel has developed what its customers (HP, Acer, Dell,etc.) asked for: microprocessors which were faster, cooler, more cores, etc. In doing so, it missed the mobile revolution.

It is very difficult for any company, where the entire infrastructure is structured around complex high-margin products, to adapt to  a fast-moving, low margin market. Some companies succeeded: IBM entered the PC market by founding the entire business in Florida, away from the high margin, slow moving mainframe business in New York state. Some failed: CDC was killed by Seagate.

It remains to be seen whether Intel has the courage to accept that the next  technology has passed them by and that only dramatic changes will allow them to, at least, catch-up

This is old news. It is obvious that Intel is trying to more away from x86 cpus, but its revenue still largely rely on Desktop and Server microprocessors.

Intel is already starting at foundry business and, with its powerful R&D and manufacture capabilities, could very well play against TSMC and Samsung.

Imagine if Apple would not love to make its Ax SoC using Intel technology? It is just a matter of Intel accept to go deep in foundry business.

As stated in the article, they already have one-two nodes ahead of other companies, so as a foundry, they would have huge advantage over any other company

This implies that Intel's dominance in process technology is a good thing for consumers, which iclearly is not the case. This is the best thing that could happen to the industry: Intel becoming one of many. This would push for more competition, and hence better value for money to consumers.

fab capacity for new process

Probably the main alarming thing is presently Intel is allocating less fab capacity for the new 14 nm process than thought earlier (entire Fab 42).

But I don't think it will affect the progress on new technology development. 10 nm is pretty much already spoken for.

How far and how fast will Intel fall? It will be interesting next few years as new leader emerges. Should Intel invest in non-electronics field and services?

Not seeing the concern. Intel is still a very successful and profitable company. This is about cutting production, not scaling back on R&D.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
