Call me ass-wipe? I thought you had more
character than that. I'm as heavily invested in semi's as
anyone here (KLAC, NVLS, CMOS, SMTL, ...), but I try to
keep an emotional detachment from what I own. There
are two sides to every story, and I sometimes try to
point out the risks behind the investment. Calling me
names and blatant cheerleading doesn't change those
risks one iota.
Just so you know, I greatly
appreciate your work to keep us fully informed about
activity in the business. That helps to make the Cymer
board the class of Yahoo Finance. But since most people
are here to make money, we should strive to present a
complete picture of the investment world, so we can make
"Learn to read, you idiot."
I suggest you
should follow your own advice:
Otellini gave the FIRST hint of a TOTALLY NEW processor
that Intel is developing solely for the notebook PC
market. He didn't elaborate, but said it's the FIRST
processor the company has ever designed from scratch solely
for mobile PCs."
Duh! What don't you
understand? First hint? totally new? first from scratch?
solely for mobile?

They can't shut me up, but they sure can slow me
down. I think we will have to come up with an
alternative sytem for upcoming events. But if we disclose it
here, I'm sure they will infiltrate and obstruct.
Apology accepted. In the fifteen years that I
have had brokerage accounts, all of them have been
plain vanilla--no short sales, no options, no margin,
no commodities. I do not share the visceral dislike
of short sellers, market makers and proprietary
traders that some on this board do. A lot of short
sellers are people like you and me looking to make a
buck. A couple of months ago, I was sorely tempted to
short LHSP with the scent of fraud in the air. Would
that have made me the devil? I don't have a problem
with MM's and traders... but I do have a big problem
with SEC rules that give these people unfair trading
advantages over the rest of us. Fact is that these people
are part of the game, and you do what you can to turn
this knowledge to your advantage when
This is one of the few Yahoo boards I frequent because
the level of discussion is high without all the
ignorant shills and cheerleaders that seem to grow like
weeds around here. I encourage everyone to keep it that
Good luck to all with your investments.

"IBM's suspiciously timed
announcement no doubt will send fear into potential investors,
since IBM has been a longtime supporter of Transmeta.
But the fact is that Transmeta isn't a one-trick
Sony Electronics, NEC, Hitachi, and
Fujitsu already are shipping, or plan to ship, notebooks
powered by Crusoe. "These companies are taking the lead
in longer battery life, which is what consumers are
looking for as computing and the daily business
experience become increasingly mobile," notes Transmeta
spokesman Phillip Bergman.
In addition, Gateway
(NYSE: GTW) plans to use Crusoe to power America Online
(NYSE: AOL)'s Web pad Internet appliance. Gateway and
AOL, a Transmeta investor, are expected to unveil
their plans for the wireless Internet appliance shortly
after Transmeta's IPO, according to sources familiar
with the companies.
"I don't think people
should look at the IBM news as an IPO killer," Mr.
Gwennap says. "Ultimately, the Web pad market could be
bigger for Transmeta than the notebook market."
And, of course, Transmeta is targeting a huge market
-- cell phones and portable computing devices --
that would benefit from its superior battery life.
