    Misinformation All Day Long

    From TheStreetDOTcom

    "The vast majority of the apps and software that run on iPhones, iPads, Galaxy phones, and other devices all are built off ARM-based intellectual property, so to change from that technology to Silvermont is an enormous task. "

    Of course, the opposite is true. All the software that has been written for X86 serves as a huge moat protecting INTC's PC and server business. This moat will simply expand to cover tablets this year.

    On the other hand, it is my understanding that few apps have been written that will run ONLY on Apple or Android machines. Virtually all of them can now or will soon run on X86.

    ARM has no moat. Apple has no moat except a lot of true believers. Android is agnostic. INTC has a huge moat and better technology.

    How long will it take to get this through some of these fat heads?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • You guys are missing the forrest for the trees.

      It is not going to be Intel versus iPad tablets using ARM architecture.

      It is going to be iPad using Intel x86 processors in the future.

      I'd bet real money (and I have) that even now Intel and Apple are working on putting x86 processors in iPads for 2014.

      The MS Surface is a clunky prototype of what an x86 tablet could be. iPad with x86 processor will show what they should be. Thin, lightweight, long battery life, and NO COOLING FAN.

      By the way, I own INTC and AAPL. Pretty good dividends too.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • That statement you quoted is absolutely, positively false. Applications written for iOS are written in Objective-C and are already compiled NOW to run on X86. When you develop an iOS application you can run it in an iPad or iPhone simulator and the simulators run on X86 Macs. A simply choice from a drop-down list lets you build your application for either ARM or X86.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • the fat heads are those who have consistently bashed ARMH in favor of INTC and gotten their shorts handed to them. notably some poster who noted Wall Street finally takes notice when ARMH was at the low of the day on the way to a new high, something INTC was not able to achieve today. and the poster wasn't wally

    • Intel to offer tools for easy porting of iPhone or Android apps to its hardware

      here is no doubt that the chipset manufacturer is pretty annoyed to see these little devices turning into the main computing units for many people, who would otherwise have to use Intel's hardware, found in laptops and desktop machines. To remedy the situation until the dual-core Atom family finds its way into tablets and smartphones, Intel is working on a tool that will allow applications developed for ARM chipsets, to be ported for Intel gear with maximum ease.

      Theoretically, this could allow all applications written for the Apple's App Store and Google's Android Market, to be transformed into software for Intel's Atom-based gizmos. Whether or not this strategy will prove successful, is anyone's guess, but at least Intel is doing something to entice developers. The company already has an AppUp Center for Intel-based netbooks that will also double as a store for MeeGo and Windows down the road. Intel's goal is to have a look at existing apps, try to port the relevant ones over, and have them on the AppUp Center for the end users.

    • Apples iOS environment is native, that is to say apps are compiled into ARM machine code.
      In Android most apps are Java and happily run under x86. There are some apps (typically games) that are native ARM code.
      Windows server environment is all native x86, while the linux server environment is native x86 but most apps happily compile to ARM native. Basically, running a linux software stack on ARM is no problem.
