  • Microsoft states Windows 10 downloads top 14M; reviews largely positive [View news story]
    Ballmer from Microsoft, and Ottelini from Intel both missed mobile that was happening right in front of their noses. I wish both never became CEOs, neither were engineers, technical, nor scientists like Gates or Nadella. Marketing, sales, finance, just MBAs, business manager types run down tech companies slowly and surely.

    Dana - If you were around Henry Ford's time, you would have advised him to keep splitting his business into dozens of companies. Henry Ford was one smart business man.

    You mean McDonald's spinning off veggi burgers, salads, French fries and the like, into a separate business to unlock the inherent vast potential coiled $$ in them !

  • Uber closes funding round at $51B valuation; Microsoft reportedly invests (updated) [View news story]
    401K is for wall street, it is not a guaranteed pension plan like the way traditional pension plans used to be.
    How much net income does Amazon make, they sell a lot, but what matters is profit.

  • Uber closes funding round at $51B valuation; Microsoft reportedly invests (updated) [View news story]
    "Microsoft Corp. has agreed to invest about $100 million in Uber Technologies Inc." that's from the above link.
    What a waste of money. Do they do anything besides taxi bookings?
    I doubt this is coming from CEO Satya Nadella, could be the board members decision, it is the board that also approved aquant (spelling?) purchase that resulted in billions of dollars in write-off. It is better for Microsoft to give special dividend to long time share holders, instead of wasting money like this.

    I should start a business booking peanuts sales online, and hope for Microsoft to buy it out for hundreds of millions.

  • How The Intel Acquisition Of Altera Affects Taiwan Semiconductor [View article]
    When I hear the phrase "2H of next year" or "2nd half" with investing, overtime I learned to recognize the fishy smell. With Intel this is going on for decades. After CEO Grove they had couple of duds of CEOs, how they missed mobile happening right in front of their noses is beyond me.

    Previous CEO Paul Otelini missed on Apple due to his underestimation of mobile, he could not see, it was an very unfortunate decision on his part for us Intel investors, to make matters even worse Apple designed their own chips.

  • A Sea Of Change At Intel [View article]
    "Intel is in prime position to finally begin to bear fruit from its acquisition of McAfee in 2011 over the coming years." please tell us how Intel will earn back $7.7 Billion or so they spent to acquire it, and continued to spend on it since the acquisition, I read that revenues are down since acquisition.

  • James Exit May Reflect Intel Weakness [View article]
    The previous CEO missed mobile for many years, he also passed over Apple's iPhone chip business, when Apple came to Intel. McAfee was also purchased during his tenure by way overpaying for it, several billion dollars unlikely ever be recovered. Once a company misses by years, it is very difficult to catchup in technology. It would have been good if these changes were made many years ago, what took Intel so many years to make such changes?

  • Was The Recent Executive Shuffle Good For Intel Shareholders? [View article]
    When Intel was led by scientists and engineers it excelled, after the board selected marketing, sales, finance, just MBAs, business managers as leaders, it missed mobile revolution, low power consumption chip technology; ARM got the traction and it has become leader in mobile. Qualcomm was led by engineers with PhDs with patents to their name, it took leadership position in mobile, Intel is unable to unseat Qualcomm after so many years of trying. Education & work experience in the field, patents to their name, correlate to leadership, proof is in the pudding.
    I always hear about Apple's Jobs not being an engineer nor a scientist, in these debates. Jobs was involved intimately with technology starting in his teenage years till he passed away. The above mentioned leaders from non technology fields are no Jobs in any shape or form.

  • Was The Recent Executive Shuffle Good For Intel Shareholders? [View article]
    I was surprised when she was appointed as president. Why did it take Intel so many decades to replace her? McAfee's way overpaid acquisition for $7+ billion will unlikely be recovered. She is not a software engineer, she is a business manager like Ballmer of Microsoft. Both missed mobile revolution. Finally someone realized, and getting rid of real dead wood. When is the chairman, the finance guy leaving for missing mobile?
