"What does pass the smell test is that ALL of ARM vendors will have 64 bit chips out by late 2015. Which means that MSFT will be able to introduce the NEW full Windows OS that is optimized for ARM sometime in 2015. RT will go away because MSFT will create a FULL Windows for ARM 64."
[LOL. You worked up about this? You've got to be kidding. You're saying that after the RT experience that Microsoft is going to double down on a new development cycle? That won't be complete until late 2015 which probably would mean 2016 and which is supposed to be a full Windows version which then I guess is supposed to run legacy software and support all device drivers. Ha. I'll believe that when I see it. It's ridiculous. It's like a bad April's fool joke. By late 2015, early 2016 Intel will be kicking ARM's rear end so bad that no one will remember that ARM ever had a dominant position in mobility. This sounds like a really lame extension of ARM's claim to taking major server market share in the same time frame. That's not happening either.
You are going to need a lot more capital letters to sell this swill. ]
"They are usually correct with their forecasts."
[Hahahahahahahahahaha, Digitimes. LOL, good one. Little Stewie should tell a joke so good.]
"Down with the market correction."
[You mean the latest fake market correction?
Lucy, maybe you should switch to your ApologyBoy ID and issue yet another warning. You'll want to get your usual ten in this month, right?
Hasn't Jimbo found you yet? That boy looks really unhappy.]
"The problem with Intel's business model is they have NO CONTROL over product segmentation. The OEMs are using Haswell, Core, Baytrail, etc. as they see fit, usually not at the price points & features as Intel had planned. Thats the problem when Intel is content in being a component supplier only & not vertically integrated. Anyone with half-a-brain could see this trainwreck happening 3 years ago, except Paul O. apparently."
[Lucy, why hasn't this paid shill character gotten a pink slip yet? One of your lamest creations since Agent Orange.]
Those who just read the headline should go read the entire article. It's a big win for Intel and a benchmark for what is coming - which is a sea of processors and connectivity. Bump for Intel. We are moving rapidly to the next level of computing.
Anyone else seeing this constantly today?
"All those unwashed hands from coughing kids, drooling babies, itchy dogs, insects and viruses will make Intel liable for billions in lawsuits."
[Yeah, butkus - like a regular menu is germ-free. You idiot.]
Millions of consumers went online to get a crack at shopping deals for Cyber Monday. Online sales were $2 billion for the one day — up nearly 20 percent over the same time last year.
Cyber Monday rocked while mobile sales rolled.
The day widely regarded as the Super Bowl of online sales ca-chinged its way to a record day for retailers, including Walmart, and marked a shift in shopping preferences as smartphones and tablets drove nearly a third of traffic — and for some retailers, more than half.
The numbers are mind-boggling. As of 6 p.m. Eastern time, overall sales were up 17.5% on Cyber Monday compared with last year, says IBM Digital Analytics Benchmark. Another e-commerce research company, Custora Pulse, found online sales up almost 19%. The numbers may shift even higher as people continue to shop through the evening.
This year, "Cyber Monday is well on its way to being the biggest online shopping day in history," says Custora CEO Corey Pierson.

Online shoppers spent record amounts of money on Cyber Monday and did much of their shopping on mobile phones and tablets.

"There's no 2012 number, dufus. That's what you can't compute it your way and why you got the wrong 60+ percent number.
I never mentioned a 2012 number. Numbers direct from the table in the article: 2013: 1010 2017: 1685:
So what is the percentage increase?"
[You can't derive a 5 year rate without a sixth number, moron. You have to have a starting place. You have 4 gaps in the numbers you show. You need five. It's why the numbers in the table don't compute. ]
"Well, Intel has actually explained why they are doing this. Read Ashra's article about it if you don't understand. The questions is really *why* they messed up on the SoC design"
[I have no interest in reading your or Ashraf's rants on this subject. Let's just say I categorically disagree with you. It's not like you have any interest in doing anything but criticizing Intel. I certainly don't look to you for an objective opinion. And every once in a while Ashraf goes off on some sort of dysfunctional rant of his own. Like on LTE or the number of Haswell systems for sale.]
"Announce a layoff of about 20K employees, which they should be doing. That would pop the share price up."
[Come on, Lucy - it's time to retire the backbay_bstn ID. You've gotten totally stupid with these posts.]
