Here's how he reacted to the ridiculous "PC is dead" mumbo jumbo #$%$ by some ANALysts.
Barret said to Bloomberg:
"Goodness gracious, let's get off of this "the PC is dead".
I was around with Intel for 35 years and I went through probably 6 or 7 iterations of the "PC is dead".
You showed earlier in the program the great margins Intel's been running. There revenue grew nicely under Paul's stewardship. I don't see any of that stopping and I don't think the PC or the Ultrabook or any other form of computing that Intel is involved in is dead. They'll build off of that, they'll get into smartphones in a bigger way and into the ultramobile in a bigger way. That's where they've been putting their investment in the last several years. "
It's much wiser to listen to this great Intel veteran rather than the bunch of clowns that call themselves analysts.
After Barrett responded to how Intel will seriously get into mobile market in a big way, he made a comment about some of the analysts' talk.
Here's what he said:
"If the analysts who are following this (mobile market) are so brilliant that Intel missed this boat entirely, then they haven't been doing their homework! They haven't watched the technology transitions, they haven't looked at the ability of Intel to do high performance/high power computing or high performance/low power computing. Intel has both these cards in its deck."
