Amazon has officially asked the FAA for permission to fly drones "as part of its plan to deliver packages to customers in 30 minutes or less." And you thought/hoped they were joking.
Lucy, as bad as your creative fiction is, I still think it's a better career path for you than paid posting for Jimbo.
Well, this seems to be bad news for ARM, TSMC, nVidia and AMD.
Delays on 20nm and then customers potentially skipping 20nm for a process of unknown manufacturing developmental time and with a design development time of over three years.
"Tomrrow's stock action on INTC will be in the red all day long."

a.) Not know what day of the week it is? or
b.) Not know that stock markets aren't open on the weekends? ]
To get a little technical CPUs follow standard lithographic practices as defined by ITRS (Intnl Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors). This follows an establish path for process shrinks and also can make the reduction easier to handle. For example Intel’s next shrink will go from 22nm to 16nm and then following on to 11nm. GPUs on the other hand use smaller half steps as a sort of stop gap between the established nodes: 28nm to 22nm to 20nm to 16nm etc.
This method has led to some challenges when working on the in-between steps. Right now both nVidia and AMD have had problems with getting their GPUs working at 20nm. AMD spent a considerable amount of time in trying to get things working at 20nm. TSMC has not really been able to get things going at 20nm. In April of this year they stated that they were not ready to meet the demand for 20nm for either AMD or nVidia.
Because of this we are now hearing that nVidia might skip over 20nm and push right into 16nm or the next full node process. If this is the case TSMC might find it easier to run at this process level. TSMC was already working with ARM on 16nm as far back as April 2013 so this process should be mature enough to handle nVidia’s needs. It makes sense for nVidia to skip over the troublesome 20nm node and jump to the ITRS defined node and work with TSMC to get there.
Doing this will allow them to put new GPUs on a more stable process and begin to work on optimizing the design of their next generation GPUs for this smaller and more space efficient process. The 800 series GPUs from nVidia will stay at 28nm and hit the market in H2 2014 while we will most likely see the next gen drop in H2 2015 at 16nm.
It should be an interesting time in 2015 to see what the AMD Vs nVidia landscape looks like. Of course, there is the fact that AMD is also working on 14nm with TSMC… we wonder if that half-node step will work properly or if things are just getting too small for the half steps to keep being the right path.
"Yep. I don't know why the longs on this board think it will not affect MU. When the Nasdaq rolls over, MU will follow it."
[You predicted a crash all week. How'd that work out for you? I mean other than making ten cents a post.]
"If a H&S does not play out, it is because it is contained by a larger chart pattern such as a Rising Wedge. The H&S will keep trying until it breaks the Rising Wedge bottom trendline."
[Is your entire goal to prevent intelligent discussion on the MU board?]
"I think you need to educate yourself on something called "crashes." Fundamentals and technicals will not matter when the crash comes. It is foolish to believe that there will never be another crash."
[That's like yelling fire in a theater because, well, sooner or later you know there's going to be one. Your posts are irresponsible - the kind of thing one expects from a paid shill. ]
Yep, I agree - nice close. And almost exactly what Alex predicted. Imagine - a prediction that wasn't grossly incorrect like the ones we get every morning and every night.
Yes, this is a difficult period to trade with so many trying to push the market off a cliff and quite a few determined to keep it there.
Big week next week. A lot of real information. Thank goodness for that instead of what we hear from the raving lunatics in between earnings announcements.
Stalker boy gets his hissyfit on over CPA regulations.
The matter, Twinkletoes - can't find any small animals to torture in your neighborhood today?
"Note, where I come from, bets that are illegal are unenforceable at law."
[What kind of lowlife, inbred douchebag tries to get out of paying off on a football bet because he doesn't think it's legal? But continues making them anyway.]
"How would using the title CPA be "illegal" is you are a CPA?"
[You think cpashelly is really a cpa? Don't make me laugh. But there are rules and regulations for the manner of the use of the term CPA with one's name that CPA's must abide with if they want to continue to practice. Hey, I don't make this stuff up. It just the way it is.]
Representing yourself as a CPA in any form of public dissemination is illegal. No matter what Twinkletoes says under any of his many user IDs.
Note: Don't take legal advice from a guy who welches on football bets. Or still rocks to the tunes of the 70's.
"wasn't that the typewriter with the "ball" type heads? What did they call that..selectric typewriters, or something?"
[Yep. And even some of the first poor man's word processing. What was that - maybe 30 years ago?]
We should have a good idea how earnings season is shaping up by the end of next week.
B of A
"I think INTC will finish in the red. $31.00 + dividend = $31.23 close ... down 3 cents."
[That would be up 14 cents for the week which would be pretty good considering the rather massive attempts to sell the market off and the considerable move up that Intel has already made.]
"there is no stopping it. Besides Weaver sold at $25 and Essa at $27 which is all the more reason for it to go up."
[Lucy, you know I can't help but notice that making things up is becoming more and more the norm with you as you attempt to justify constantly being wrong. You should quit screwing around and just declare a complete break with reality. Your fantasy world beckons for you to come live there full time.]
