    Selling Chip Business = Selling IBM DNA

    IBM is after all a company about "machines". It will a sad day when IBM no longer makes machines, but instead is a pure software play. I've long touted and had faith in IBM, not least in 100+ years of R&D and financial excellence.

    Not to be cute, but I feel IBM will be in deep jeopardy if this comes to pass. Ironically, Watson was realized with IBM Power chips. I feel that this electric engineering centric mentality is the least common denominator in producing seminal R&D: be it electrical engineer, math, or pure computer science.

    I might be wrong, but I think IBM management has it very wrong on this.
