It took 2 years to unravel the decision to create this useless post of the President as well as the No 2 to the CEO. Her biggest failure is perhaps what no one is talking about - failure to get Intel into the tablets at Samsung. Intel is fumbling in the dark to get something going besides data-center, and coming up empty so far.
G O T C H A! wimpy_weaver yer outta here, N O W!

Judge Lucy will determine yer eligibility to return after 30 days. Yew don't even wanna know what will happen to ya if you dare to defy the board's 10:6 decision.
Austerity does not work.
Everybody knows this - it's about a long term plan that the Greek need to execute -
enough - you just keep blah blahing about something you don't understand -have a great 4 th
chicken out and vote YES to slavery. People are usually very scared of the unknown, and voteing NO means highly turbulent times with a lot of unknowns.
A little help will go a long way. Get Merkel some brains. Austerity does not work. Even the ECB realized it and has started printing Euros.
BK is batting 1000 in my book. So happy to see the layoffs and even happier they are pruning the dead wood. Never felt better about Intel's prospects! STRONG BUY!!!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
"The EU was not always as big as it is today. When European countries started to cooperate economically in 1951, only Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and ... "
and consisted of former enemies ( 2 world wars) - so it was dramatic step towards a peaceful Europe -
forming a union makes sense in many ways but one can't restrict it to certain countries IOW forming an exclusive club
The EU set certain financial rules members have to follow - Greece blindsided the EU and for many years the Greek enjoyed a very high standard of living based on a house of cards.
It will be a long turnaround assuming the people have the will - making hollow promises like the current leader is detrimental - I think Merkel et al are open but they must see that there is a serious attempt/plan to bring the house in order - you make a plan and than execute the plan -
perhaps the EU should set certain milestones of reforming for example the Greek pension system and couple it with other financial incentives that help grow the Greek economy (rather just spending it)..
Greece has quite a merchant fleet which is owned by some stinking rich Greeks who - according to German paper - have not paid a dime tax over the last 5 years - the Greek seem to be incapable to enforce it
Its pretty scary to think she almost got the CEO job. Apparently, her "claim to fame" was botching up the Software division. She was the "brain child" behind the $8B acquisition of McAfee. A total waste of $$ and effort. Expect a huge write-down soon. Time for the clueless CFO to go too. It's time for Intel to get rid of the Board and bring in a new culture of innovation. Right now, Intel is the new IBM.
I wanted to tell you that I am really thrilled with the great job this site is doing with there service. I have tried for years to find an advisor that was more right than wrong. I have been a member for a couple of months and everything is as promised!I can't believe how in-tune there system is. Watch there FREE daily video and maybe it will help you like it helped me.

Europe will be fine, with or without Greece
We’ll start here, because the ongoing debt crisis in Greece seems to be a never-ending source of hysterics.
In a nutshell: Just because people who haven’t been paying attention to the eurozone for five years are freaking out doesn’t mean you have to.
U.S. growth will be even stronger
The year got off to a bumpy start after a GDP contraction in the first quarter. As a result, the bears came out in full force with their recession calls.
But if the first half was characterized by disappointment, the second half of 2015 will be marked by acceleration as the U.S. economy gets its groove back.
In short, expect a powerful finish to the year despite a slow start to 2015. The story of this frustratingly slow recovery from the financial crisis has been one of fits and starts, but it is indeed a story of recovery. I expect the data to continue to point higher in the second half of the year and reinforce a narrative of growth, not one of a slowdown.
Interest rates aren’t going anywhere
Back in April, I said the 10-year Treasury wouldn’t top 2.5%, and I guess, technically, I was proven wrong on June 10 when it hit exactly that mark.
But I remain convinced that low rates are here to stay, and that any brief pop to 2.5% or slightly higher won’t last long.
China will keep sinking
This bull market won’t end
Even amid this bleak outlook for China, there is actually quite a lot to be optimistic about right now in regard to the global market and U.S. stocks in particular.
Comon folks, we need 2 move votes to kick wimpy off the INTC Island and put out his torch. Lucy, use some of yer multiple IDs or something, you know. Vinnie_bag_of bananas, or whatever, lets go, okay?
marco the super genius : - ))) $5.00 gift certificate to my NYC BK for any of YINZ who gives the last two thumbs. Lets do this thing already.
Anyone that has a PC two chip generations or older will find a lot of reasons to like Skylake because there are so many improvements across the entire platform. It brings more speed and better graphics, but those new USB interconnects and Thunderbolt are really impressive.
Not everyone that gets LD gets a bulls eye rash. See your dr if you find a tick on yourself. Save the tick.
