"The foundries have "true" FinFETs in production now and to claim otherwise is extremely deceptive."
[Okay the foundries have true finfet with inferior backends. Bottom line is that it is an inferior product to what Intel is putting out.
monstah_condo to Ignore with the rest of the pinhead aliases.]
Yet Wall Street has managed to beat the markets down because of "Fed uncertainty".
Too funny. Buy the dip or be the dip.
"FYI, "finfet" is a property of the transistor, not the backend. Samsung's and TSMC are true finfets (how good or bad they are compared to Intel is another question)."
[No, they're not. They are half-steps with inferior backends. Use your definitions all you want - it doesn't change the reality.]
Or be the dip. Just more of Wall Street's manipulations. You should know what to do by now. Don't get blindsided like the board mutts who fall for the same routines again and again.
Carly Fiorina made a big splash at the second Republican presidential debate, but she didn’t escape a lengthy fracas with GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, who attacked her record as the CEO of Hewlett-Packard. Fiorina, in turn, struck back at Trump’s many debt-laden businesses.
The thing is, they’re both right: Fiorina and Trump both have incredibly spotty records as business executives.
Here’s a quick sampling of their business track records:
Fiorina touted HP’s quadrupled revenue growth under her tenure, but as Trump correctly pointed out, that growth came from the disastrous $24 billion acquisition of Compaq, a move that resulted in massive losses and layoffs. From 1999 to 2005, HP shed 30,000 jobs under Fiorina.
The merger coincided with a massive decline in PC sales, and HP’s stock halved after the company repeatedly missed earnings targets. The stock rose again after she was fired.
While she was president of Lucent Technologies, the company boosted revenue by loaning money to “sketchy” customers, according to Fortune. When the dotcom boom burst, Lucent’s shares fell below $1, and it ended up merging with Alcatel.
Fiorina was quick to bring up Trump’s failures, noting his businesses had filed for bankruptcy four times: in 1991, 1992, 2004, and 2009. “Why should we trust you to run the finances of this nation any differently than you managed the finances of your casinos?” she asked. (Trump has maintained that he was merely taking advantage of the US’s bankruptcy laws.)
His second business to declare bankruptcy was Plaza Hotel, which had $550 million in debt. As part of the restructuring, he gave up his 49% stake, though stayed on as CEO without taking a salary.
Trump Hotels, his third business to file for bankruptcy, racked up $1.8 billion in debt.
After missing a $53 million bond interest payment, Trump Entertainment Resorts declared bankruptcy in 2009. Afterwards, Trump resigned as chairman.
"All INTC needs is another $5 bucks and it will be back to where it was when I sold over a year ago."
[We all know that you are cherry-picking your trades to make it looks as if you were successful. If you want credibility then post both sides of your trades when they happen. You've been bashing Intel since it was at $19.23. And now you want us to believe that you have been a successful Intel long all along.
Hahahahahaha. Not buying that load of malarkey.]
"Still 50% higher than INTC even though both stocks closed at $25.50 on 7/26/2012."
[Well, then go buy some ARM and short some Intel and post your trades up. But talk is cheap and you need to find your spine before you go posting smack. ]
Gee, Lucy - on August 27th you said:
"Did you buy again thinking it was safe? Here comes 26.75. Then down to 25...soon."
So, you were talking about 25 and now you are talking about 30. LOL
Your predictions are filth.
I have a rule about purchasing technology: I make myself sell another piece of tech I own to at least partially fund the new device. When the iPad Air 2 was released, I sold my iPad Air, for example.
So what, exactly, would I sell to help foot the bill for the pricey iPad Pro, which starts at $799?
The iPad Pro won't replace my laptop
The iPad Pro won't replace my desktop
The iPad Pro (probably) won't replace my tablet
That leaves my iPad Air 2 as the only potential sacrifice. But do I really want to curl up on the sofa after a long day with such a large and comparatively heavy tablet? (The iPad Air 2 weighs 0.96 lbs., compared to iPad Pro's 1.57 lbs.) Would I take the iPad Pro to the park to read an ebook or magazine? It's possible — but I doubt it.
Bottom Line: iPad Pro really won't replace anything
In other words, at this early stage of the game, the iPad Pro will replace ... nothing, at least for most people.
With demand for Apple's tablets struggling to regain momentum, two recent moves from Apple still are unlikely to improve iPad sales in the immediate future.

Wall Street keeps finding them and slapping them around. No wonder they are afraid to post their trades.
