"Give up your scaremongering, it is over. He was only interested in securing his Crimean Black Sea Fleet in perpetuity (which I said from the beginning) which he has done. The rest of the Ukraine is not worth the pain that tough Western sanctions and ostracism would bring although he has engineered a settlement which will give his ethnic Russians a bigger voice in how Ukraine is run. This crisis is going to die down now and go away and Ukraine and Russia will come to some sort of arrangement with Ukraine in the long run probably becoming the bridge by which Russia and the West meet and come to a more lasting peaceful co-existence."
[Dunno what the source of your knowledge is, but you seem woefully uninformed. Your don't worry, trust Putin is naive. Putin needs Ukraine as a part of the Soviet economic counter to the European Union and as a buffer to NATO. To say that Crimea is all he cares about is just plain wrong. His goal is really to re-build the old Soviet Union and he has even talked about Russia's historical claim to Finland. As a minimum he wants to turn Ukraine into a federation so he can carve off parts or at least ally with parts. If he were only interested in Crimea then he wouldn't have 40,000 troops on the eastern border.
Do you know any Ukrainians or Russians? Have you ever been to either country? And if not, what makes you think you are such an expert?]
[The Ukraine situation is a long ways from being over. ]
"Russia is our beoch."
[You obviously know even less about Putin and Russia than you do technology. If that's possible. ]
"Wally hoping for doom and gloom."
[I'm actually worried that a lot of people will die because of one man's ego. People dying is a lot more important than anything that happens with the markets. Not that someone like you would ever understand that concept.
And since you hang on every post that I make, you should know that I don't ever hope for doom and gloom. ]
[Nothing has changed, with the agreement that was signed being less than meaningless. ]
Donetsk, Ukraine (CNN) -- The self-declared leader of pro-Russian separatists in the eastern Ukraine city of Donetsk on Friday defied an international deal for protesters to vacate seized buildings and lay down their arms.
The deal was agreed to by Russia, Ukraine and the West.
Thrashed out Thursday in Geneva, Switzerland, by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Ukrainian, U.S. and European Union counterparts, it is intended to be the first step toward easing the crisis in Ukraine.
But its proof will be in whether words translate into action on the ground. In the city of Donetsk, at least, the first signs were not promising.
"Lavrov did not sign anything for us, he signed on behalf of the Russian Federation," Denis Pushilin, head of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic, told reporters in the city.
Intel has introduced its first tiny desktop computer to use passive cooling. The Intel NUC DE3815TYKHE measures 7.5″ x 4.6″ x 1.6″ and uses a combination of low-power components and passive heat dissipation so that it doesn’t require any fans.
The system isn’t exactly a high-performance PC. It’s powered by a single-core Intel Atom Bay Trail processor and it’s aimed at enterprise solutions such as thin client systems or digital signage rather than home use.
But folks who prefer low-power, quiet solutions over bleeding edge performance might be able to make do. The mini-computer officially supports Windows 8 Embedded, Windows 7 Embedded, and Linux, but it has an x86 processor that should work with most modern operating systems.
ntel NUC DE3815TYKHE
The Intel NUC DE3815TYKHE features a 1.46 GHz Intel Atom E3815 processor with 5W TDP. It can handle up to 8GB of RAM, has 4GB of eMMC storage and support for a 2.5 inch hard drive or solid state drive.
The system has 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and 3 internal USB 2.0 ports. It has HDMI and VGA ports, DisplayPort, and Gigabit Ethernet. There are also antennas for an optional wireless card.
This isn’t the first Intel NUC mini-computer to feature a Bay Trail processor. But earlier models featured active cooling systems with fans and more powerful chips aimed at both business and consumer markets.
"Hate's a strong and ugly word. Please stop your ignorance, and stop speaking for others."
[Twinkletoes has earned every bit of it. There is no more small-minded, mean-spirited wannabe bully/stalker on the message boards.
But mostly I hate him because he's not funny or entertaining and he welches on football bets. He's a dishonest, multiple ID using, duplicitous, hypocritical, parental blowhard.
Plus his affection for Sylvester Stallone 70's music is culturally offensive to anyone with two ears and at least that many brain cells.
Other than that I think he's a fine fellow.
If you put him together with Lucy and Nenni, why it's like the Three Stooges ride again. Except they were funny and entertaining and didn't welch on football bets.]
"Intel may not make profits in the near term in tablets and smartphones, but their strong push to grow in those areas should put some hurt in ARM based products. Maybe even hurt Qualcomm to some extent.
Currently, I have no put position in ARM, but am very happy with my Intel gains. Especially the deep in the money 2015 calls. Overall, I still have a large portion of the profits that I cashed in from previous puts. So far, buying 3 month puts on ARM has been working nicely for me if I place the bets when the stock is solidly above the $50 mark. And selling them when they hit the low $40's or the high $30's. But again, I do the ARM bets of puts just for fun. The real investment is in Intel since Intel is alot more transparent in their data than most other techs."
[Intel is doing exactly what it needs to do for long-term success. The fabrication story gets more compelling everyday. Intel powers on while ARM fades to black. Even Wall Street is starting to figure it out. ]
"Hooray...looks like Intel is losing its key structural advantage as competitors close the process gap."
[Leave it to Twinkletoes to read the words and not understand a single thing about what it means.]
"That's all this filthy stock got from its earnings report. Doesn't breed much confidence."
[Yeah, 7 cents in comparison to the 9 buck drop you predicted. It doesn't breed much confidence in your projections. Who's your daddy, Lucy? Intel yo daddy. LOL ]
Apparently the paid shill boss only put 2 talking points on the 3 x 5 card he gave Intel Justice. So, all he knows is to repeat those 2 points over and over and over. Or was it just one talking point?

"That's what you said about 2012, 2013, and 2014. while you live in make-believe, Intel is bleeding $1B per Q in mobile"
[Intel isn't bleeding. But you are. Just another day for you on the losing side, Lucy. ]
"Fact is Intel spent $1B in bribes this Q alone LMAO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
[You been posting this up repetitively for some time now. And Intel has moved up for some time now. Have you always been such a slow learner? ]
ARM is way up today on really great news. The great news was that, um, let's see, um - well nevermind - it seems to be up on the same old manipulation. P/E is 139 so no increases in earnings estimates.
Sorry to have bothered everyone.
Humpty is down a mere 3.40 now in the last couple of weeks. Everyone should now buy like crazy. Uncle Putin says he has no invasion plans and no troops in eastern Ukraine. You can trust him.
"Intel needs to keep bribing to have any products in mobile Intel keeps losing money in mobile"
[Contra revenue will be gone by the end of 2014 along with your paper tiger argument. ]
Following its recent acquisition of fitness wearable device maker Basis Band, Intel has been working with US-based waterproof coating solution provider HzO to improve its high-end mobile device and smart watch products, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.
Apple and Samsung Electronics are also interested with HzO's waterproof technology and may adopt it for next-generation iPhone, iWatch and Galaxy smartphones, the sources said, adding Google is also reportedly considering adopting it for its upcoming smart watch.
