"Intel range bound this year and mid teens late 2014 is teh road map"
[You've been saying the exact same thing since Intel was $19.23.]
"This is also the reason why Samsung and Apple will not use INTC on a massive scale on their smartphones."
[If Intel's chips are the leaders in performance, energy efficiency, density, capacity, technology and price, then everyone will use them. And that's why we are going to see a massive transfer of processor manufacturing to Intel. It's simply the market at work. All of Intel's R&D and investments are now going to start paying off. There is no force on the planet that can stop capitalism from finding the lowest common denominator. Just as the internet gutted bookstores and retailers, Intel will now gut the ARM foundries.]
[I had heard that he had his uncle purged but just saw the execution article.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un purged his powerful uncle, Jang Song Thaek, during a high-level meeting of the Political Bureau, part of the Central Committee of the Korean Workers’ Party. Footage of the meeting on Monday displayed all the classic setpieces of a totalitarian purge: a bizarre litany of charges, tearful denunciations by former comrades and the forcible removal of the renegade. Jang then disappeared, and North Korea said Friday that he had been executed after being convicted on charges he tried to organize a military coup.
It appears that despite his youth, Kim is pretty old-school: the shaming, purging and dispatch of Jang borrows classic tactics from any number of totalitarian dictators faced with threats to their power. But what made Kim’s purge especially retro was the news that Jang has been airbrushed out of existing photos and videos.
"Dealnews is showing the 240GB 530 SSD on sale at $110 effective. Purchase is $159 and $4 shipping and includes a $30 rebate from Intel and $20 from TD. It is very rare to this model at that price."
[Cool, I've been looking for a good SSD deal.]
"You two butt kissers make me sick."
[Oh thank god, I was about to say that you had made more sense today than anytime in the last three years. Whew! That was close...]
"You are right. There is a lot of manipulation on Wall Street. It may not be day-by-day, but today's "announcement" from Bloomberg vindicates you."
[Thanks. And thanks for the article. You are absolutely right in that this is a situation in which you can do a great deal of good. Thanks for jumping on this with both feet. Hats off. ]
[Why do you post stupidity like this? The TV deal is already dead and one wouldn't expect the DirecTV CEO to say anything good anyway. In other words, this isn't news and if it were it would be old news.]
"“We are actively engaged in designing the world’s best infrastructure,” said Liz Markman, a spokeswoman for Google. “This includes both hardware design (at all levels) and software design.” Markman declined to say whether the company may develop its own chips."
"Mark Miller, a spokesman for Intel, and Phil Hughes, a U.S.-based spokesman for ARM, declined to comment."
[As you said, some BS...]
[Steam Machines with Intel Inside. Woo Hoo!!!]
Valve Software updated the Steam Universe group page with news that the studio will ship its Steam Machine prototypes to beta participants this Friday, December 13. The company has selected 300 eager gamers who will also test the company’s Steam Controller. All prototypes will come pre-installed with games that run natively on Valve’s Linux-based platform, SteamOS.
"The 300 selected beta testers are being notified today (at about 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time) that they’ll soon receive Steam hardware and SteamOS for testing," reads the blog. "Each selected user is also being awarded a special badge on their Steam Community profile, indicating that they’re a beta participant. In addition, a number of games that run natively on SteamOS are being added to each selected user’s library."
The blog reveals that all 300 testers are located in North America due to "regulatory hurdles". This was not the plan, the blog states, as Valve wanted to collect beta feedback from gamers across the globe. So the team decided to press on with North American customers only, as the only other alternative was to delay the beta “beyond the point when we’d be able to incorporate any feedback into the 2014 products”.

"I got a Sandisk at Best Buy"
[Did they recommend one? They seem to run in the $20 to $40 range. I'm wondering if the extra money for the higher end is worth it.]
"Michael Dell is no Dummy. He got the company for real cheap."
[Every once in a while you say something intelligent. It happens so rarely that it is greatly appreciated when it occurs.]
"How about this.. Kiss my butt or better yet, kiss Essa's butt."
[If that's the best you can do, then you have my sympathy. I will consider myself to have been delivered a snappy, witty and humorous retort. You owe me.]
And the maniac volume posting paid shill basher got taken out - either by Yahoo or his boss. And the sellers are running out of money or have run out of good money to throw after bad. Time to move up.
"Essa is clearly an IDIOT Intel hater. Weaver is an IDIOT. Intel is dead money for a long long time. The above are indisputable truths."
[If they were indisputable you wouldn't need to post them up every other day. The only thing that is indisputable is your need to say something even if it's a repetition of your prior stupidity. You are so totally out of anything new or interesting to say.]
"BTW, I got my Venue Pro 8 yesterday. I added 64GB micro sd card and bought a MS Mobile Wedge Keyboard. I recommend this keyboard cause its really a nice size and the rubber case can be used as a stand for the tablet. I'll eventually get a usb hub and a larger monitor to add another desktop setup at home. So far I'm loving it."
[Where and what brand memory card did you get?]
"I must say the shareholders of FNSR sure can prop this. I still think it's just temporary and it's going lower once the dirty is done."
[I see. You're the new paid shill. At least you post less than the last one.]
