on Economist

Well, Intel has a new CEO and he has a tough task at hand with Moore's law meeting a physical roadblock and AMD chipping away its market share. It has other problems too ..

  2. Will Intels new strategy of focussing on rwhole platforms (combine associated chips and software along with the core processor) work ?
  3. Will Dell continue patronizing Intel ?
  4. How will Intel win the mobile game ?

With 80% market-share in PC business, it will be interesting to see how Intel reacts to the innovation challenge that it faces in the mobile era ...
