Where's your manhood? Of yeah, you lost it when you freaked out and sold Intel with the Haswell delay rumor and then pee'd your pants and did it again on the Broadwell delay news.

For just $399 you can be one of the first to pick up the quad-core Baytrail-based ASUS Transformer Book T100 Windows 8.1 2-in-1 that we saw launched at IDF last month. We were impressed! $399 gets you the 64GB version (there’s a 32GB version but we advise going for the one with the bigger storage.) It should ship soon after 18th October.

A quick re-cap on the key ASUS Transformer Book T100 specifications:
It’s a Baytrail – Z3740 (nominal 1.33Ghz quad-core with boost to 1.8Ghz) – which should bring in a really good improvement over the Clovertrail-based tablets of the previous generation. The 10.1-inch screen is IPS and has a 1366.768 screen. 2GB of RAM should be OK for the Windows 8.1 32bit OS and included Office software. The battery is in the tablet and it’s a 31Wh unit that will give you anything from 5-10 hours of working time, depending on what you’re doing and how bright you’ve got the screen. There’s a USB3.0 port on the dock so running it through a DisplayLink dock to a larger screen should not be a problem. There’s a Micro HDMI and Micro USB on the tablet.
Here’s an interesting bit of information. Amazon say that the USB port on the tablet supports “charging and USB device.” Does that mean the tablet can be trickle charged via USB? That would be great for mobility.
The tablet weighs just 1.2 pounds and the unit together just 2.4lbs. This is a product high on our list.
The Amazon order page is here. Do let us know if you’ve ordered and what you’re planning to use the T100 for.
And here's one great comment about it.......
This form factor, I believe, is going to be massive hit. Price, Bay-Trail, Free Office and full blown Windows experience.
Arnold Schwartzenhager, LOL. Not really that funny when you think about it. Liberals live in debt. They act like they are somebody they aren't in order to look like a big shot. They are arrogant and ignorant. They'll gladly order the most expensive menu item.........as long as you're paying. They are pond #$%$.
Intel jumped yesterday but is facing what appears to be a large bearish position.
optionMONSTER systems show that a trader bought 14,000 July 18 puts for the ask price of $0.16 against open interest of 20,509. At the same time, he or she sold 42,000 July 16 puts for the bid price of $0.04 in volume far above open interest of under 2,000, so that was a new position.
The trader could be rolling a short puts to a lower strike while greatly increasing the size of the position, but it is far more likely that this is a bearish ratio spread . The latter would take a maximum profit if INTC is down around $16 by expiration in mid-July. (See our Education section for more on vertical spreads .)
INTC rose 3.13 percent to $21.75 yesterday. The chip giant's shares were down at a 52-week low near $19 in November but are back near resistance around $22 that has been in place since early October.
More than 353,000 INTC options traded in the session, compared to a daily average of 63,000 in the last month.

I Just Sold All of My INTC and Bought CSCO
CSCO will outperform INTC in 2011.
Won't happen. When Intel reached 29, he said he was glad Intel was the cornerstone of his portfolio. Life kicked him in the teeth and he takes his vengence (sp?) out here.
Really sucks for you since you own 11 million shares, per your post history.
You should forget all about Intel and go buy some Apple at 700 I mean 600 I mean 500 I mean.....
Amazing how he is able to buy 1 dollar less than the low of the day. And from his posts the last two years, he owns about 900,000 shares. Idiot.
And yet Intel didn't warn, and that has you hopping mad.
What adult says things like HI-HO???? None that I know. Again, where's that Intel warning you pumped, ya MAG%%T/
East says the company is taking dead aim at the market for server processors. There’s plenty of room for gains in that market, where ARM at this point has no share at all. East says the interest among servers vendors in using ARM-based processors boils down to logistics: he says they require less space and use less power than conventional X86-based processors. East notes that by some estimates IT equipment now suck down 10% of the world electric power already; he also notes that there are estimates that in the next few years that the amount of data creates could increase 100x, or maybe 1000x. Even at 10x, he notes, we’re going to run out of power at the current consumption rates. “They are going to switch to ARM because it is all about the power,” he says. “The digital world is not going to become a reality unless servers and network infrastructure is designed in a different way….ARM is a tool in the toolbox for making this stuff more sustainable.”
In network architectures, East says, we’re about a year away from seeing the debut of ARM-based server processors. But he says that the story here is much the same as it is in servers. But he notes that companies like Cavium, Applied Micro Circuits, Texas Instruments, LSI and Fairchild have all talked publicly about using ARM processors in networking infrastructure.
The company also sees a growing opportunity in microcontrollers and “the Internet of things.”
Now, I would point out here that ARM isn’t going to get a free pass to simply roll into market after market unopposed. Intel, for instance, is making a fresh push into the mobile device processor market, though so far the company has made only limited progress.
East’s not writing Intel off, but he also doubts that Intel will ever become a huge player in smartphone chips.
“We do anticipate they will get some share, but not massive share,” he says. “And why should they? We have 15 or so licensees shipping into the market now. There’s an ecosystem and ARM platform around those companies. Intel’s chip is a little more applicable to mobile devices than previous generations, and it can become one of the 15-20 semi companies in that space. They are a very capable company with lots of market money to spend. So I don’t see any reason why they shouldn’t achieve 5% share.”
Couldn’t they muscle their way to more? East says it is unlikely. “Arithmetic says they win about 5%,” he writes. “They have lots of marketing money and they have capable technology, so maybe then they 10%. That still leaves us with 90%” And we’re looking to the server market, where Intel has virtually 100% share now.”
Breaking, deal reached.
By your own posts, you own about a million shares of Intel (lol), so you never predicted any collapse. By your own posts, there was a "concrete floor" under Intel at 26, 25, 24, 23 22, 21 and 20 due to the Dividend. LOL...........get lost.
