Actually it was Acorn before Advanced. Plus, by comparing architecture + instruction set of initial ARM and of the several RISC chips done in USA, one can only concluded all are original designs

Were you perhaps aware of the fact that ARM stands for Advanced RISC Machines !!

ARM siphoned its technology from US ? Are you kidding, or what did you siphon into yourself before daring to write that ?

Churchill club ? In SFO ?? Sounds like the "Empire is Striking back" and trying to retake the Lost Colonies made rich by 2 centuries of hard work by the non-English ( like the Germans, Scandinavians, Italians, etc , etc. ). British Monarchy system is like Kryptonite to any Democracy and too much contact ( the BBC etc. ) is slowly corroding our own system that we fought against the Redcoats to create. Now re: ARM's "benign & co-operative" business model ! They can afford to be less demanding in their profit margin because they did not innovate the core technology they are selling ( RISC architecture ) but siphoned it off the US. What would ARM be on their own ( remember the Brit Transputer architecture, yaargh ! ) ? The same goes for ARM's partner in "crime". From Morris Chang on down they are all trained in the US ( many at SemaTech, SRC grants at US taxpayer cost ).

Its not rejecting x86 but allowing customisation of socs ,rather than having to take what Intel gives/allows you to have. Plus Intel only really serves the desktop/mobile pc market.

It is Arm's open business model that has caused market to reject x86 in mobile. Why buy chips from a single source. Also contrast arm to intel. Arm is stay the course but new intel CEO had to pitch a new strategy to board and roll out to his managers on day 1.
