What's that about?
Pressure from Intel getting too much for the rookie?
If there was a great future and excitement for ARM,
a 51 year old would not quit.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
He knew he would be humiliated by the public boasts he made about ARM's "inherent" advantages over Intel that he can no longer defend. ARM's Windows RT is a failure. ARM server competition never materialized and now Intel's 32 nm Clovertrail rivals the best ARM ships today for mobile. Note how silent East has been lately. He does not want to be around when the $&#* hits the fan.
If they were going to set the world on fire with Servers, he would ABSOLUTELY not quit at 51. Windows RT is VERY telling. Wow, this is a MASSSIVE shot in GETNID61's gut. Talk about having your teeth kicked in. East shot his mouth off and now quits at 51? Hilarious! Like LackeyGarret said on the ARM board: Is ARMH the closest thing to a legalized Ponzi scheme that there is??????
