  • Apple Versus Intel: What's Going On Here? [View article]
    iliadav, why do you say mobile wasn't strategic enough for them to pay attention? Are you aware when the mobile push started?

    The problem with the armchair CEOs here is they don't even know what Apple was proposing. Were they really going to use Atom? If not (and it's very unlikely that's what they would have used - the battery life just wasn't there at that time and the iPhone would likely have failed had it been used), then it would have likely been an XScale derivative that would have only distracted and delayed Intel from the march towards the Atom you see today in Bay Trail, or are soon to see in Merrifield.

    AnonymousAlpha lives in a fairy tale world where there is no opportunity cost, and everything can be attempted simultaneously, and there is no risk in failure, as you pretend your failures never happened and money falls from the sky.

    "The other company I believe was Samsung that made the processor for initial iPhone release."

    Bingo AA. And Samsung took no risk on it. They used an ARM11 design that was nearly five years old. NOBODY was willing to risk anything on this outside of Apple.

    Of course you would have, but you're a legend in your own mind. A pitty you can't get that CEO job.

    I wonder if Samsung feels they did themselves any favor at this point with that decision?

    "Don't jump from mobile to Itanium"

    Here was your claim:
    "When a major company comes to you, you do not turn them down, that's number one rule."

    That's an idiotic rule. Has nothing to do with mobile. Apple wasn't even a major company at the time. They had an mp3 player and were a minor player in personal computing.

    You're a Monday morning quarterback without a clue.

    Which other companies?

    You didn't respond on Itanium. It disproved your nonsense.

  • Coal stocks fall as EPA releases plans to curb emissions [View news story]
    "...and let say all you who deny climate change are wrong - what then?"

    LOL! So Stuart, if man didn't exist the climate wouldn't change? You're clearly one of the sheeple that have bought into this because you don't understand the basics of the hypothesis. The climate isn't static - never has been and never will be. Proving that it changes doesn't prove that man has caused the change.

    Stuart you're pulling the bs of bait and switch. First you talk of CO2 and the AGW fraud, and now you switch to pollution in China. There's pollution and there's CO2. Pollution from coal plants in the US has been regulated for a very long time. China could do the same. Claiming the CO2 you exhale is a "pollutant" is a recent farce driven by the political desire to create new revenue streams for governments.

    Use some comment sense.

    "1) When a major company comes to you, you do not turn them down, that's number one rule."

    AA, you're talking about when HP came to Intel with the Itanium architecture? Yes it's a shame Intel turned them down on that one. Intel could have won over the server market. Unfortunately they passed on it, and the rest is history - Intel a minor player in the server market. What a shame.

    Like I said, a legend in your own mind.

    AA, how many opportunities do you think Intel has passed up that you never hear about? How many game console "opportunities" do you think they've passed on?

    Apple never needed Steve Jobs. Anybody could have realized the promise of the iPhone concept. There was no risk in it.

    Like I said, you're a legend in your own mind.

    It's a shame AA's considerable expertise in running tech companies worth hundreds of billions is wasted in feeble comments on SA.

    deercreek,
    It's worse than that. The peer review process was completely corrupted within the "climate science" community. That was one of the findings coming out of Climategate - the extent to which the rather small climate science community was cliquish and that the peer review process was a joke.

    @Stuart - no scientist would state that AGW is fact. At best it's a hypothesis. Moreover, some of it, such as Mann's fraudulent hockey stick hypothesis, have been disproved.

  • EPA's new carbon rules hurt coal, could accelerate shift to natural gas [View news story]
    Valhalla, who are you responding to? I don't see any mention of carbon capture. Carbon capture is an attempt to mitigate the fallout from the AGW fraud, it's not the cause of it.

    Jake, what you mean is when he dedicates his life to creating rigged climate models and manipulated data then you'll listen to him. Deal with reality - the science is a fraud and has been exposed as such. The liberal politicians are the only group still pushing this because there's no more grandiose tax scheme than taxing air. It's the ultimate wet dream for them.

    Milhouse, not the same thing. Power plants aren't running on propane. You do know your average backyard grill is propane, because propane is easily compressed to a liquid without cooling? Have you ever seen a refrigeration unit running on a backyard grill to keep the propane liquefied?
