@Bruzzer, what the #@$%& did you just say (twice)? Between the choppy, headline-like sentences and the jargon (e.g. "So long as Intel does not anoint, step on, infringe, limit, restrain, shift revenue among those who invest organically on best practices to compete there; ...monitor INTEL as process saturates to new competitive potentials, etc.") I can't figure out what you're trying desperately to say! WTF?

I can't help but wonder if the increasing number of patent lawsuits will dampen or kill off cooperation between competitors. Given the trend towards litigation as a means of protecting market share and feature sets, I imagine that the joint effort needed for standards will be hurt by company self interest. I remember long ago, a comment made by an older (and wiser) co-worker about large companies loading up standards groups with an eye towards driving the "standard" to fit their needs. I hope that the market will recognize and address these pressures so as to preserve the ability to collaborate.

I do not think it is the end of industry cooperation, Dylan. It is hopefully a short-lived period of reactionary attitudes and gestures. If data sharing is essentially useful to these companies in the long run, they will resurect it in some form or another in the future. Capitalism has this great ability to mend itself.

the world is more competitive and companies must decide when and how much information is too much. Remember that Geraldo R went to war and said too much and when called on it he said " nobody hurt so no foul"... he should have been shot on the spot. loose lips sink more that ships and giving your competition your numbers is just plain stupid unless you want to drive the industry a particular direction.... data is everywhere but useless while information is tought to find and is true power
